I'm relatively new to ArcGIS and stuck trying to understand how to calculate the amount of each land cover type lost if sea level was to rise to a 1m and 2m contour threshold.
Essentially I have created a basic map of land cover for an area adjacent to a harbor. I have extracted 0m 1m and 2m Contour lines from a Lidar-derived EDM (Using a =<2m query) and plotted them on the land cover map as seen below.
I then tried using the intersect tool with both the land cover shp and contours shp but a very similar map was produced outlining essentially the same image as before, as seen below, the attributes table has included some more information but i'm not sure what to use in calcualting the amount of area lost if sea level was to rise.
Any information about what to do would be much appreciated.
