App allows users to view sea rise projections in South Florida; see related news coverage by Fusion
Today, eyesontherise.org, a project of four Florida International University School of Journalism and Mass Communication professors and their students, takes a proactive step in helping South Florida citizens understand the sea level issues affecting their areas.
Through funding from the Online News Association, the project’s Sea Level Rise App — also know as the Sea Level Rise Toolbox – is now available at http://eyesontherise.org/app.
The app is free and was officially launched at BarCamp Miami at the Miami Ad School in Wynwood. It is also being featured in reporting on the Miami Beach Centennial celebration by the media company Fusion.
