ST-2: Include projections in maps
Develop sea level rise scenario maps and updated storm surge maps based on the Compact’s Unified Sea Level Rise Projections and storm surge modeling, such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Sea, Lake, and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model, to be included in appropriate comprehensive plans and/or regional planning documents.
Use locally produced maps to guide municipal and county government climate adaptation planning efforts related to:
- The built environment
- Transportation infrastructure and services
- Historic and archaeological resources
- Water management systems and public infrastructure
- Natural resources
Continue to update local and regional planning maps as more data becomes available and scientific projections are refined. Local governments and organizations should use best available data and tools for land use and other planning.
