The Sea level rise issue associated with climate change is a growing concern and major number of research work is carried out to evaluate the impact and for future prediction. This study helps to understand the level of threat to the coastal Florida and to visualize potential impacts from sea level rise for different scenarios using the data available in the form of Digital Elevation Models available online such as SRTM and Aster DEM data. The area of impact is calculated and its performance is compared between datas using ArcGIS software.
