Please Join Us For A Webinar Briefing on San Mateo County's OWL Project!
July 27th
11am to 11:30am
Dear Mayors and elected officials,

We are excited to announce a new partnership between the County of San Mateo and Owlized to launch the “Look Ahead” climate visualization project. The goal of this 5 month effort is to engage the public, decision makers, and stakeholders on the increasingly relevant topic of sea level rise and its associated impacts. As local elected officials, we would like to invite you to participate in this effort and generate dialogue around this important issue.

San Francisco based company Owlized will install an “Owl” device at Coyote Point Recreation Area in the City of San Mateo for decision makers and members of the public to visit. The Owl is a digital viewfinder modeled after the coin operated binoculars commonly found at scenic viewpoints. The Owl viewfinder houses a built-in augmented reality environment that allows people to see the potential impacts and responses to sea level rise in 3D for the very location they are viewing. The Owl project’s visualization and dialogue will be used to generate awareness and spur action related to climate change mitigation and adaptation among county residents, businesses, government representatives, and other stakeholders.

The Owl will be installed at the end of July 2016 and will be in place through the end of December 2016. With funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Climate Access will create and help implement a communications and engagement strategy to target relevant stakeholder groups to maximize use of the device and help the County and its municipalities advance their work on climate adaptation. The project coincides with the release of San Mateo County’s Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment that is part of a broader multi-year Sea Change SMC sea level rise preparedness strategy, currently in its first year.
