Blue Marble to Present COAST at MAPPS 2013

Hallowell, Maine, June 25, 2013—Blue Marble Geographics (bluemarblegeo.com) has been selected to present on the COAST Tool at the 2013 MAPPS Summer Conference. The conference will be held at the Samoset Resort in Rockland, Maine on July 22nd – 26th. Blue Marble's geospatial data manipulation, visualization and conversion solutions are used worldwide by thousands of GIS analysts at software, oil and gas, mining, civil engineering, surveying, and technology companies, as well as governmental and university organizations.

Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham will be speaking on the development of COAST (Coastal Adaptation to Sea Level Rise Tool). COAST is a free GIS-based tool for modeling and estimating losses that are the result of sea level rise from climate change and storm surge. This modeling tool allows GIS analysts to forecast the costs associated with potential flooding events, model strategies to reduce those costs and publish this data in 3D Google Earth.  COAST was developed by The New England Environmental Finance Center (NEEFC), Catalysis Partners and Blue Marble Geographics and is built on the Global Mapper platform. Global Mapper is a low-cost, GIS software solution developed by Blue Marble. This talk will discuss some of the challenges faced with this type of initiative, as well as explore the benefits of this type of specialized GIS implementation.

“We’re excited to be presenting on COAST at MAPPS,” stated Blue Marble President Patrick Cunningham. “Not only is it (COAST) an effective use of GIS technology, but the story of the tool’s development is one of private sector and academia partnering to help businesses and communities make cost effective decisions based on  scientific research.”
