San Francisco Archipelago Posters
June 7, 2072 (AP), Northern California Association of City States:
Responding to coastal erosion due to the accelerated disintegration of the East Antarctic ice cap, the NCCS (Northern California Coast Survey) has released a higher resolution topographic map of the San Francisco Archipelago, showing the 200 foot sea level rise compared to the 2012 sea level datum.
This poster, designed by centenarians Brian Stokle and Burrito Justice, is available in three sizes (note: adjusted to 2012 dollars, and old-style American measurements – please double-blink to convert).
(Note: default shipping is via 12 hour pneumatic tube from Zazzle’s underwater Redwood City printing facility.)
Note this should not be used for navigational, construction or underwater recovery purposes. Additionally, the hydrographic map has been delayed due to budget restrictions due to the construction of the new Norcal Capitol building on the Fresno shoreline. However, a small segment of the street map update is available for review.
The new street maps will be released by neighborhood over an indeterminate time frame.
