Using the Mapping Tools to Understand your Current and Future Risk

In order to answer the evaluation questions posed by the Getting to Resilience, a community will need to assess their current and future flooding risks and hazards.

The Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Checklist is a facilitation tool to help communities identify who should be involved in the resilience discussion, what topics should be considered, and what assets should be focused on. 

New Jersey Specific Mapping Tools

NJADAPT (www.NJAdapt.org) is a New Jersey-based website that provides communities with the ability to develop municipal profiles of various risks that may potentially impact their areas by making climate projection data for NJ more accessible.

Through NJADAPT you can access the NJFloodMapper.org and the Flood Exposure Profiler.

The NJFloodMapper is sea level rise and flood mapping website that visualizes different inundation scenarios and overlays additional data layers including critical facilities, evacuation routes, FEMA flood maps, storm surge models and the extent of inundation from Superstorm Sandy.  The site is further enhanced with on-the-ground photo visualizations of inundation impacts at iconic Jersey Shore locations.

The Flood Exposure Profiler is the first tool developed as part of the larger All Climate Hazards tools being developed through the NJADAPT initiative.  The Profiler is broken into four major themes:

Each of the profiles allows you to see the themed data and then overlay a hazard layer of your choice to see what the potential impacts may be.  This tool allows you to create maps that you can then package and share links to or create pdfs from for further use.
