Lidar-derived Coastal Risk Map for Australia

ss-ngis-inundation-scenarios-503x335This article in Spatial Source reports on an impressive research effort involving coastal risk and inundation in Australia, a country that has potentially massive issues to address with rises in sea level. The project includes the use of lidar to develop a powerful and I am sure scary interactive map that portrays the areas that would be inundated under different hypothetical scenarios.

I live within a hundred yards of the Atlantic Ocean which is a lot of fun most of the time, but it could become a real negative issue sooner than we all would like to think.
