Coastal Inundation Mapping Training
February 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
One event on February 7, 2020 at 9:00 am
The Washington Department of Ecology’s 2-day hands-on training provides an introduction to coastal inundation and coastal inundation mapping methods using GIS. Topics include discussion about different types of coastal inundation (i.e., riverine flooding, shallow coastal flooding, sea level rise, storm surge, tsunami), selection of elevation datasets and datums, mapping fundamentals, spatial methodologies used to map flood areas in a coastal environment, and applications and limitations of various types of inundation products.
Coastal Inundation Mapping is a technical class focused specifically on data development rather than data use, and therefore requires 1+ years of GIS experience.

Friday, February 7, 2020, 9:00am – 4:30pm
