A new site shows you what your home would look like were sea levels to rise. It’s an interesting look into how much we might have to change as our planet does.

The raw data from NASA is 50Gb. A complete set of tiles for Google Maps needs 22,906,492,245 files. I need 15 sets of tiles for the 15 different flood levels, which comes to 343,597,383,675 files!! I only have limited disk space, so I wrote a tile server in C++ that would generate tile files on demand, and then cache them.
