About the map

Climate change is becoming ever more present and brings with it the threat of sea level rise. With some areas of the world beginning to feel the effect today, we wanted to investigate the relationship between an extreme coastal inundation scenario for Britain and the impact that this would have on vulnerable populations. The human impact of climate change is often cited but mapped less.

Why it works

The interactive app lets you explore the risk to Great Britain. Using the swipe tool within the Media Map ArcGIS Instant App, you can instantly observe the relationship between deprivation and Sea Level Rise (SLR). The map is interactive, letting the user see if a location important to them may be at risk.
