Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I really wish that the map could be closer up also.  We will buy land at a higher elevation next year because we are certain our home will be under water in 25 years.  But there is a lot of land that disappears in this that is well above the rises I enter.  How could land at 6 meters disappear at 1?  I understand it would be an island, but not completely gone.

Most freely available datasets are not so accurate. For instance, the anticipated elevation accuracy of the famous Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) dataset was <=6 m locally (200 km) and 16 <m globally. But practically it's worse.
