The site also provides shared public information on coastal change; coastal elevation mapping; hydrology and storm surge; ecosystem impacts and environmental quality/contaminants. Visual elements of the site include Sandy before and after photos, extensive aerial photography and before and after LIDAR topography of New York’s Fire Island.
