Community Resource Inventory Tool Available Online
The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium and several partners have developed an online Community Resource Inventory (CRI) mapping tool for South Carolina. The tool has been piloted in Georgetown County, and is currently being expanded to include all eight coastal counties in S.C.
The CRI can be used to overlay data layers with U.S.G.S. topographic maps, satellite imagery, and street maps. No GIS software or training is needed. Current data categories include Water Quality, Planning and Zoning, and Flood Zones.
As needs are identified, more categories and data layers will be added. Other partners include the S.C. Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials program, Clemson University’s Baruch Institute and Carolina Clear program, and the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
