Community Resource Inventory - South Carolina

A community resource inventory is an online mapping atlas of the natural and cultural resources in a community, along with human dimensions information. The human dimensions information includes land parcels, urban areas, and streets and highways. For South Carolina, the Community Resource Inventory-South Carolina (CRI-SC) tool presents these data in an online map for users without traditional geographic information system capabilities. Having a detailed set of inventory maps can assist those who are interested in planning for the effects of sea-level rise in South Carolina.
