Florida Sea Level Scenario Sketch Planning Tool Extension for Custom Analysis

In this project, the research team proposes to develop an extension to the Sketch Planning Tool to facilitate custom analysis of the potential impacts of multiple flood events on transportation facilities at finer geographic scales. This new extension would produce “on-demand” analyses of custom, user-chosen areas and flood data (as they become available) for Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and its regional partners. The extension will be built off a new geospatial framework, comprising hardware and software infrastructure to support the analyses and user interfaces. This project specifically seeks to incorporate additional flood data, but this new geospatial framework will be designed to support inclusion of almost any climate data (in geospatial format) as they are developed and updated. This project will facilitate more robust and standardized vulnerability assessments of transportation infrastructure at a smaller geographic scale.
