Overview risk map

Overview: Risk MAP

  • Five year effort to modernize maps

  • Result: digital flood data and digital maps for 92% of population

  • Improved flood data quality

  • Limited up-front coordination

  • Scoping not mandatory

  • Collaborative approach

  • Goals: quality data, public awareness, action that reduces risk

  • Watershed-oriented

  • Focus on up-front coordination

  • Discovery is mandatory


The vision for risk map

The Vision for Risk MAP

Through collaboration with State, Local, and Tribal entities, Risk MAP will deliver quality data that increases public awareness andleads to action that reduces risk to life and property

Risk MAP Products

Changes Since Last Map

  • Improved outreach

  • Increase transparency and trust

Discovery

Discovery

Discovery is the process of data mining, collection, and analysis with the goal of initiating a flood risk or mitigation project and risk discussions with the watershed

When:

  • After an area/watershed has been prioritized

  • Before a Risk MAP project is scoped or funded

    Required for new and updated…

  • Flood studies

  • Flood risk assessments

  • Mitigation planning technical assistance projects

    Why:

  • Increases visibility of flood risk information, education, involvement

  • Helps inform whether a Risk MAP project will occur in the watershed
