Cool to have an interactive map for residents to use as a resouce; I've not been up to the shore in many years.

If you could go back and the the map from around 1,300 to 2,000 years ago, you would get a pretty accurate picture of how high the seas will get and what the landscape will appear.  No worries.

I am surprised that new codes for building and rebuildeer requiring farther set backs aren't seen more.

Technology at one of its finest hours...great assistance for people considering 'shore' purchases and a terrific tool for Realtors like you who recognize the value of this information and share it with buyers and sellers.
