This project was inspired by the research needs of the Third National Climate Assessment. The NCA3 did a good job at showing the future of our nations climate. However, it needed more information on how exactly our nation will be impacted by climate change. More over how our nation will be impacted economically. When joining spatial and tax data there are GIS processes that can be used to generate summary reports. In doing so the reports generated can be used for a valuation of an industry's assets. Which in this case study is Real Estate and Infrastructure.  As of right now there are many federal initiatives that have been instilled to make sure the United States is ready for the impacts of climate change.  A couple of recent pushes for adapting and mitigating to climate change have been through the White House. These are two Executive Orders that have been passed in recent years: E.O 13653 (2013): Preparing the US for the Impacts of Climate Change and  E.O 13690 (2015): Federal Flood Risk Management Standard The orders provide justification for creating  tools of analysis and visualization of data that in turn will be crucial for educating the public. Knowledge is the key to the progress of our readiness as a nation.
