Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper

The purpose of this mapping application is to provide a preliminary look at exposure to common types of coastal flooding. The viewer is a screening-level tool that uses nationally consistent data sets and analyses and should be used as such. Data and maps provided can be used at several scales to help gauge impacts and prioritize actions, but should be verified with a site visit.
