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. .

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.
