This easy-to-use, downloadable visualization tool allows users to “see” potential changes, from coastal development (including a new building or marina) to sea level rise. Controls are similar to Photoshop, but with less of a learning curve. Users can quickly develop realistic visualizations for their stakeholders. Hundreds of coast-based icons (coastal object libraries) are provided.
