NJ FLOOD MAPPER OVERVIEW

This interactive mapping website was designed and created to provide a user-friendly visualization tool that will help get information into the hands of local communities who need to make decisions concerning flooding hazards and sea level rise.  This website should be used to promote enhanced preparedness and land use planning decisions with considerations for possible future conditions.

The NJFloodMapper uses high resolution mapping of the land surface elevation to model areas vulnerable to sea level rise.  FEMA Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), coastal evacuation routes, state/municipal level infrastructure and socio-demographic information are included to provide a fuller picture of vulnerability to flooding hazards.

This project is a collaboration with the NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) through a partnership with the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JCNERR) and the Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis (CRSSA), Rutgers University.
