Map Tips

  • Click on the plus (+) or minus (-) buttons—or use the mousewheel—to zoom in and zoom out of the map.
  • Click on the icon below the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons to use the map in full screen mode.
  • Change the map's base layer by moving your mouse over the square map icon in the lower left of the map. Choose one of the eight possible base layers by clicking on one of the squares when they are revealed.
  • Move your mouse over the "layers" icon in the upper right of the map to see a list of the additional or overlay layers you can add. Click on a section heading to reveal the possible layers you can choose
  • The black rectangle (shown by default) represents the study area of this project.

Note: This mapping interface provides the data produced during Phase II of the SR 37 Stewardship project. The data are not available for download directly from the website, due to the size of the spatial datasets (up to 2 GB).

10. Other Layers

Berms / Highpoints -- Berm extraction is done by first reclassifying the edges layer (generated using the lowland mask).

The basic process was to run a focal mean on the DEM to calculate the mean elevation around each cell. After some exploration of different options, it was found that a 100 foot radius created a useful circular neighborhood for this process.

The focal mean was then subtracted from the DEM to give a measure of how high above the mean elevation each point is. For convenience, it was called the edges raster.

In short: edges = DEM – FocalMean(DEM, circle(100feet)).

County Boundaries -- This layers shows the county administrative boundaries for the region.

Study Area -- The black rectangle (shown by default) represents the study area of this project.

Legend Descriptions

legend

LIDAR DEM

This legends shows the representation of values in the LIDAR DEM (Digital Elevation Model), in this case the units are feet. While only a single number is shown right of the color representation, the color value represents the range of values between the value next to the color and the value above it.

legend

Potential Flooding and Potential Inundation Layers

Like the LIDAR legend, only a single value is shown right of the color representation. The color value represents the range of values between the number shown to the right of the color and value above it.

legend

Overtopping Layers

This legend represents the feet of overtopping predicted on the Overtopping layers.
