Sea Level Rise - Australia

A new interactive map from NGIS allows Australians to see how a rise in sea levels could effect their neighborhoods. Coastal Risk Australia visualizes the predicted sea level rise for 2100 and also allows users to simulate different levels of sea level rise on a map of Australia.

You can use the search facility to center the map on any Australian location. The initial 'Predicted' map view shows the effect of predicted sea level rises for the year 2100. If you switch to the 'Manual' view you can use the map slide control to manually adjust the level of sea level rise and see the results automatically update on the map.

The digital elevation model used by the map is based on LIDAR data.
