Congratulations to our staff on the highly anticipated new release of Coastal County Snapshots! Our staff are part of a larger team that includes the prime contractor, Lynker, Inc, and federal staff from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office for Coastal Management who worked for over a year to complete this major task. Coastal County Snapshots provides county-level flood hazard, critical facility, job, and business data in an easy to understand format. The new version of the tool includes more contextual information, a more interactive interface, and two new snapshots not previously included: Total Coastal Economy and Sea Level Rise. Our staff provided data management, content development, and outreach support for this tool during this release and on a continuous basis.
