1908original shorelineThis is the approximate shoreline at Camp Ellis as of 1908. Streets of that era ran directly to the waterline in some areas.
2013current shorelineThis is today's shoreline, applied over the 1908 tax map. This map does not reflect the actual configuration of today's lots and streets, which have changed since 1908.
2061at historic rateThis is how the shoreline would look in 2061 if sea level rises at the current rate of increase, as furnished by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
2061at intermediate rateThis is how the shoreline would look in 2061 if sea level rises at the median number in a range of projections for sea level increase, as furnished by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
2061at high rateThis is how the shoreline would look in 2061 if sea level rises at the highest number in a range of projections for sea level increase, as furnished by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

About the map

This interactive map shows how the beach at Camp Ellis has eroded since 1908 and may erode between now and 2061, based on historical data and projections by the Maine Geological Survey, the city of Saco and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The map is a composite of several disparate data sets and should therefore be seen as an approximation, rather than an exact rendering, of how the beach may look in the future.
