Visualizing Sea Level Rise Impacts for Transportation Planning


Visualizing SLR Impacts Local leaders have historically communicated sea-level rise to communities by presenting two-dimensional maps, charts and photos; however, three-dimensional, immersive technologies offer new ways to convey complex concepts related to urban planning. Using a quasi-experimental design, the FAU team measured the degree to which virtual reality (VR) technologies improve (or impede) constituents’ absorption of information regarding sea-level rise risks in their communities. The project has the potential to significantly impact how sea-level rise risk information is communicated to the public in coastal areas such as Fort Lauderdale, Florida and elsewhere.
