Sea Level Rise Toolbox: App visualizes possible impact of rising seas

Ever wonder whether your home would be affected by rising sea levels? Florida International University has launched a new web app called Sea Level Rise Toolbox that shows the possible impact of a 6-foot rise in sea levels.

It allows users to type in their home address, then click on an orange tab to see the projected increase of water levels.

The free app uses elevation data and sea level calculations created by a scientist at FIU's Geographic Information Systems.
