MyCoast in Action: How to Use Flooding Photos to Plan & Advocate for Change

By Rhode Island Sea Grant

MyCoast is a platform that allows volunteers to upload photos of RI coastal flooding impacts from exteme high tides and storms, geolocates them on a map, attaches tidal and weather information from when the photo was taken, and logs them in a searchable database. Teresa Crean, AICP, Director of Planning, Building and Resilience for Barrington, and Wenley Ferguson, Director of Habitat Restoration for Save The Bay, will talk about how they use these photos in their work.

Sponsored by MyCoast partners Rhode Island Sea Grant, Coastal Resources Center, Save The Bay, and RI Coastal Resources Management Council with thanks to the Town of Barrington
