Global Sea Level Rises on Google Maps

There are quite a few Google Maps apps that allow users to view the affect of potential sea level rises. The HeyWhatsThat Map Layers map not only allows you to view sea level rises but also to view contour and land cover layers on a Google Map.

The contours layer allows you to view global altitude contours on the map. Users can even define the number of feet between the contour lines displayed on the map. The land cover layer also allows the user to view land cover information on the map at zoom levels of 10 or higher.

The sea level layer itself allows the user to define the number of feet of a potential rise in sea levels and view the likely affect across the globe.
