Envisioning Risk of Hurricane Storm Surge and Sea-Level Rise: Visualizing Sea Level Rise

Main content

 In this exercise, you will learn how to access and explore this data using ArcGIS Pro. You will do some simple analysis to understand how sea level rise may impact building infrastructure. The analysis and data exploration will be done using both 2D and 3D visualization. Finally, you will learn to create a virtual fly-through of a 3D scene and export that as movie animation.

Technical skills you will learn:

  • Accessing and exploring NOAA Sea Level rise data.
  • Using basic analysis to highlight sea level rise impacts.
  • Viewing sea level rise data in 3D.
  • Animating a scene to create a virtual fly-through.

This exercise was developed for the NCAR GIS Program BRIGHTE Workshop : Envisioning risk of hurricane storm surge and sea-level rise  that took place the summer of  2019 and the summer of 2020.
