Abstract
Georeferenced data is one of the most important parts of a GIS application. There are
many sources of georeferenced data including surge and wave coastal models and there are
different tools that can access and display such data in an interface with many capabilities
including zooming, panning and display of metadata. The data generated from coastal
models for the US coast are useful in hurricane analysis and modelling. In such situations,
there is a need for a tool that can read the output from coastal model runs and generate
georeferenced images. It is also useful for these georeferenced images to be available
through queriable web interface. It is also possible to overlay other georeferenced images
with political, geographical and topological information like US states map and road maps
