FLOODPLAINS - DFIRM --
Floodplains - Flood Rate Insurance Maps (DFIRM), 2004 (1:12,000)
Shows floodplains created from FEMA Flood Rate Insurance Maps (FIRM). The FIRM
is the basis for floodplain management, mitigation, and insurance activities
for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The Digital Flood Insurance
Rate Map (DFIRM) Database is derived from Flood Insurance Studies (FIS), previously
published Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM), flood hazard analyses performed
in support of the FIS's and FIRM's, and new mapping data, where available.
This database is an interim version of the DFIRM Database and does not fully
meet all DFIRM specifications. These floodplain data may be used with an associated
base-flood-elevation line shapefile and cross-sections line shapefile.
