During the 20th century, the Netherlands has been facing constant floods along the coasts. But throughout the years, the state has developed a reliable flood protection system. But also in England, the flood protection program has been a big talking topic, since the coasts have been suffering from erosions.
The data visualization compares the correlations between rising sea levels (Yellow & Orange Circles, in mm) and the amount of funds (Gradient, in million €) invested in the flood protection program, between England and the Netherlands. Monthly rainfall is represented by the blue circles in mm. The data was collected monthly from 1998 to 2008. The absence of circles suggests, that there was was no availability of data.
