The Resilience Atlas is an interactive mapping platform that visualizes the past, present and future conditions of the Bay’s edge and surrounding watersheds by combining layers of information, such as shoreline infrastructure, shoreline change over time, and sea level rise. This project aims to aid regional planning efforts, restoration managers, governmental organizations, nonprofits, and citizens, and serve as a repository of scientific analyses at SFEI. Ample map viewers exist for the Bay Area to share data and inform the public of changing environmental conditions, but rarely do these map viewers examine the relationship between scientific data and its implications on people and policy. Our interactive interface allows users to explore the relationship between shoreline characteristics, infrastructure, adaptation strategies and vulnerable, disadvantaged communities through geospatial data layers and curated map stories. Stay tuned for the release of the Resilience Atlas in September 2017. Funded by DWR, through SFEP.
