The data presented in the Coastal Viewer are for informational purposes and may not have been prepared for or be suitable for legal, engineering or surveying purposes.
What is the Coastal Viewer?
Coastal Viewer is an online mapping tool that brings coastal
resources spatial data, hazards-related spatial data, and other spatial data sets
within NH's 42 coastal watershed communities together in one place.
Users can search for available data sets; display the data sets in
multiple ways; and create, print, and share customized maps.
Overall, the goals of the Coastal Viewer are to serve as a one-stop
shop for all coastal resources and hazards-related spatial data in NH's
coastal watershed; to improve access to new and existing spatial data sets;
and to provide information about coastal resources, hazards, and
opportunities to reduce risk from these hazards and increase coastal
Coastal Viewer was developed by NH
GRANIT as part of the Resilient NH Coasts project, which was
coordinated by the NHDES Coastal Program and awarded funding in a
competitive process by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Office for Coastal Management. The overall
project, completed in the spring of 2015, sought to help municipal
leaders, community members, and business owners identify and
understand coastal resources and hazards as well as ways to reduce
vulnerability to these hazards. Visit the project
website for more information.
is the Coastal Viewer for?
Viewer is intended for a wide variety of people who want access to
spatial data sets in an online map, including, but not limited to, municipal staff, volunteers,
business owners, and community members. Experienced GIS users can
use the Viewer to search for and find new and existing spatial data
sets to download for use in their own software applications. Non-GIS
users, who may not have access to the technical knowledge or software
required by GIS applications, can use the Viewer to access and
display data in customizable maps.
