Community and Regional Planning

What are the Community and Regional Planning apps?

icon_activeThe Community and Regional Planning apps are the location where resilient communities host their regional and/or locally specific data to inform their decisions and track their successes.

Users can view local information alongside with other Coastal Resilience data layers which helps support regional and community-level engagement processes. The applications offer the same capabilities to users, but just differ in scale. Both applications allow the user to do the following:

  • Pan zoom to different layers in a list
  • Set transparency and/or zoom to extent
  • Download data
  • Draw areas of interest and get summary statistics for individual layers

The Regional Planning app is being used in all Coastal Resilience geographies in the U.S. Launch mapping portal.
