I’d like to share a coastal change tool I came across recently. The Barrow Area Information Database (BAID) has released four web apps for mapping coastal change in Barrow. There is an Imagery Time Viewer, Coastal Erosion Viewer, Community Planning Tool, and Research Site Viewer. These tools were developed as part of a multiagency mapping project for the community to aid with planning and to communicate hazards associated with climate change which is a very real threat to communities in northern Alaska. This mapping and data collection resource might serve as a useful model for Washington communities planning for coastal change.
