Below you will find mapping tools and data layers to help you analyze and assess vulnerabilities of the combination of sea level rise, storm surges, and sinking lands in your or other coastal communities. These resources aim to help coastal communities identify and reduce vulnerabilities to inundation and improve their resilience.  For more examples of maps related to climate resilience and change, check out the Resilience Community Map Gallery.
