Venice, Italy - Sea Level Rise Map



Use the window in the top left of the map frame to change the amount of sea level rise.





The map above shows areas of Venice, Italy that would be flooded at various stages of sea level rise. You can select a value of sea level rise using the dropdown box in the upper left corner of the map. The navigation buttons can be used to zoom in/out and pan across the map.

Venice has long been famous for being the city that is partially under water. Sea level rise associated with global warming would have an enormous impact on that city and the surrounding region. You can use the map below to zoom in on Venice and surrounding cities to observe the potential impact of sea level rise.

This map is not a carefully surveyed and extremely accurate presentation. It is intended to provide a visual impression of which geographic areas might be flooded if global warming and climate change continue unabated.

This sea level rise map was created by Alex Tingle of firetree.net using the Google Maps API, NASA data and lots of programming savvy. He explains how the map was created, the sea level data and issues about map accuracy here. We thank Alex for allowing us to share this map on Geology.com. Also thanks to Google and NASA for providing the resources needed to make this map.
