First Street Foundation is a non-profit research and technology organization committed to defining America's past, present and future flood risk. To do that, we have created two public-facing tools that highlight the risks, causes, and solutions to flooding and are about to launch a flood data API.
+ FloodiQ.com a big data, property-level flood risk tool, which visualizes risk of flooding today and up to 15 years in the future as sea levels rise
+ Sealevelrise.org a simple but digitally-rich educational site that explains sea level rise and flooding, that is tailored to a state-specific level
We are cutting-edge marketers, data scientists and technologists who are wholly committed to advancing the awareness and understanding levels of all Americans to meet the challenges of sea level rise and flooding.
