Get information about this global phenomena as well as participate (as a volunteer) in capturing the data we need to better understand and solve the challenges it brings.
• Participate in crowd-sourcing events to capture the data researchers and civic leaders require but lack
• Find nearby "Trouble" spots that affect your travel during times of inclement weather... and join in by adding spots you find troubling so we grow the collective dataset
• Take photos to document what's occurring in your region and share them with friends or through Facebook
• Access semi-private collaboration spaces called regions where you can manage volunteers and schedule mapping events
Sea Level Rise 2.0 is a major update which allows anyone in the world to begin mapping sea level rise! We started in Hampton Roads, Virginia and have learned from the mapping efforts of 1,000s of volunteers. In this updated release you can start a regional group, schedule your own mapping events, and use GPS tools to contribute data points for weather and tide events.
Virtually everyone in and around a low-lying coastal region is or will be affected by sea level rise. This app moves us in the direction of being a better informed and connected community so we can do something about it.
So if it's only information you seek, download it. But if you're looking for a way to get further involved, this app is really for you.
