The Problem

These coastal cities, across the Bay from each other, need integrated, user-friendly tools to anticipate where flooding may happen, and to quickly warn people.

The Idea

The Cities of Miami and Miami Beach will develop a data-driven system and shared data platform to predict and plan for rising sea levels and inform residents’ short-term decisions, such as altering one’s route to work to avoid flooding, and long-term decisions, like property investment to reduce risk.
