Mid-Atlantic Elevation Maps from EPA's Bush-era Sea Level Rise Study

Maps of lands close to sea level in the Mid-Atlantic

A multi-year project by the US Environmental Protection Agency's Global Programs Division developed regional, state, and county-scale elevation maps to illustrate vulnerability to sea level rise, using existing data.  EPA published the peer-reviewed technical documentation, but not the maps themselves. But you can get them here.

Maps that use LIDAR or very low flying planes are often designed to provide 2-ft contors.
