CanVis - Visualization Program For Seeing Potential Impacts from Coastal Development or Sea Level Rise
Entry ID: NOAA_canvis


Summary
Abstract: This easy-to-use, downloadable visualization tool allows users to “see” potential changes, from coastal development (including a new building or marina) to sea level rise. Controls are similar to Photoshop, but with less of a learning curve. Users can quickly develop realistic visualizations for their stakeholders. Hundreds of coast-based icons (coastal object libraries) are provided.

Features:

- Simulate potential on-the-ground impacts of various actions
- Compare outcomes of multiple scenarios
- Create a possible vision of the future
