I am currently deciding on a topic for my final project in my GIS class and was looking at how Florida is suppose to be underwater in the next 50-100 years.  We use ArcMap  and I know I can find the data but I am having a hard time finding data on the water levels in Florida in  50-100 years.  Like shapefiles on the estimated water levels in Florida, things like that.  Does anyone know where I could find this? Thanks!

Hi Val,

It should be pretty straightforward to do yourself.

What you need as starting points are a digital elevation model (SRTM, ASTER, USGS, NOAA) and the predicted sea levels over the next 100 years. Armed with these you will be able to illustrate the effects.

So I found this site http://sealevel.climatecentral.org/  that shows the level of water rising in the next 70- 80 years.  I downloaded the data for florida but its just statistics... no coordinates or anything. USGS does not have starting points or DEMS for this.  Any ideas?
