Texas Sea Grant
The Community Health and Resources Management (CHARM) mapping application is a robust citizen planning tool, built on CommunityViz and ARCMAP, that enables citizens and professionals alike to explore large and small development scenarios that reveal impacts, instantaneously, to the environment by the development, as well as impacts to the development (e.g., storm surge). CHARM hosts a number of climate change and coastal hazards algorithms, which changed on the fly during a scenario. The genius of Coastal CHARM is that it uses high tech, but gets the technology completely out of the way of the participants.
