Use the interactive map by entering in any number of inches – the map will show what areas would be flooded or at risk and the left side bar will display the number of people displaced. Click on individual points for current elevation, elevation after sea level rise, and the number and percentage of people losing homes.  Global Flood Map uses NASA satellite data to show the areas of the world under water and at risk for flooding if ocean levels rise. According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), sea levels have been rising about 3 mm per year since 1993 – totaling a 200 mm increase (7.87 inches) in global averaged sea level since 1870.

Use this interactive, in-depth map to find out who the big polluters are internationally, how China’s emissions have grown stratospherically and see who is most vulnerable to global warming’s impacts.

National Geographic, Mapmaker Interactive.
The tool has pre-made layers that can be added to a base map to be edited, printed, and saved.  The platform is very similar to ArcGIS On Line so it works as a nice transitional tool.  Mapmaker Interactive is very useful for starting the discussion What is Where? Why There? Why Care?  This tool is ideal for all levels of Geography.
