Visualization tools can be used to improve understanding of potential impacts from sea level rise and assist planning efforts in coastal communities. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) developed inundation layers to enable coastal communities to visualize potential impacts from sea level rise at high tide. These layers are available on NOAA’s Sea Level Rise Viewer as well as the Massachusetts Ocean Resource Information System (MORIS), which allows users to interactively view the data with other information such as aerial photographs, assessor maps, public facilities and infrastructure locations, and natural resource areas. The data in MORIS show current mean higher high water plus one foot increments of sea level rise up to six feet. Confidence (80%) of the mapped inundation area is also available and is based on the accuracy of the elevation data and the mean higher high water tidal surface. With MORIS, users can quickly create and share maps. See the following tips for using the Coastal Inundation Scenarios in MORIS:
