Rhode Island Floodplain Mapping Tool
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Jess Stimson
Utilizing ESRIís ArcGIS program, the online mapping tool was created using the Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map data provided by FEMA. This tool enables a user to determine whether or not a desired structure is in a special flood hazard area, if there is a corresponding elevation and the map panel number immediately by simply typing the address into the Address Locator. Even though this tool is not a regulatory product, it is a reference for the public.
