Developed by PBS&J, FloodMap Mobile relies on the smartphone’s GPS to pinpoint where a person is standing or allows the user to type in an address. The app opens a map of the area’s FEMA-defined floodplains and summarizes additional data about estimated flood insurance costs, links to insurance agents, USGS and NOAA stream gauge records and links to critical FEMA information.
FEMA has enabled flood hazard data quality by creating all flood hazard data in a digital format, which is more easily accessed than ever before.
