The objective of the project is to obtain a GIS database with display capabilities of the FEMA Region III area Storm Surge Models. The displays and the overlay features will be based upon data received from RENCI, and the U.S. Corps of Engineers supplied data sets. ECSU will assist with the development of GIS database display capabilities for the study. The university will also collaborate with USACE and RENCI to deliver enhanced visualizations for storm surge modeling results.
