The aim of this paper is to present three different cartographic approaches to sea level rise in Miami-Dade County, Florida, USA. In comparison to the traditional use of digital elevation models to distinguish between inundated and non-inundated cells, three alternatives that allow deeper analysis and cartographic expression are proposed. The first approach represents seven scenarios and/or models in a single map, which allows an easy viewing of a wide range of possible future situations accepted by the scientific community. The second approach is temporal, and it represents the date on which each cell will be inundated during high tides. The third approach represents the linear rate of mean sea level rise during the XXI century in which a cell remains flooded during a high tide coefficient of 0.7. Obtained results show a high probability of inundation due to sea level rise in medium and long term in Miami.
