Maps And Climate Change
Maps are used to depict or represent an area of land or sea. This usually shows the features of the area such as the physical attributes, the roads, the cities, etc. There are different types of maps. There are the usual maps that are being used when travelers and adventurers navigate through their destinations.
In the current scenarios though, there are now what we call illustrated maps or pictorial maps. This mostly focuses on the artistic style than on the technical style of the map. Most would say that these maps are the more artistic type than what people are usually used to. There are certain individuals or even groups that are dedicated to creating these artistic representations of the areas that one wants develop illustrated maps for.
There are a lot of uses that maps are made for that even sea levels are depicted and shown in graphical maps. New maps have shown that there are major parts of towns and cities in Australia that can be underwater in some years to come. There are have been a series of illustrated maps that has shown that Australia can be affected by climate change and this could lead to rising sea levels. There will be major cities and towns that are going to get soggier. Famous seaside resorts would be disappearing and they will be seeing a lot more sea. This rising sea level can displace a lot of people globally.
These new maps come from Coastal Risk Australia that is run by Western Australia business management consultants NGIS. It is said that just by putting in the suburb name into the website Coastal Risk Australia, one might see if the area is at risk of flooding.
There a lot of reports coming in regarding climate change and rising sea levels. However, there are still those who believes that it is still a long time coming and that they are doing steps to ensure avoidance of the worst that could happen.
Despite all this, there are still those that warns to take care of the environment to lessen the effect of global warming and slow down the effects of the rising sea level.
