CanVis is a visualization program used to "see" potential impacts from coastal development or sea-level rise. The software allows users to download background pictures and insert objects like hotels, houses, and marinas, and adjust sea level to observe impacts of sea level rise on coastal development. The software is used by municipalities to brainstorm new ideas and policies, undertake project planning, and make presentations. .

eCoastal Tools

Developed by the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers, eCoastal Tools can be used to help make coastal engineering and planning decisions.   A set of applications that enable ArcGIS users to gain access to interfaces for data retrieval and to simplify complex GIS analysis procedures are available. These tools were specifically designed to address the needs of coastal engineers, and include features such as Survey Tools; Profile Loader; and Sediment Budget Analysis System for ArcView.   This tool was used to analyze LIDAR data obtained after Hurricane Katrina, helping to quantify the changes that occurred on Dauphin Island.
