The National Flood Mitigation Data Collection Tool (National Tool or NT) Version 3.04 was developed for Nationwide use to gather information about floodprone structures in order to evaluate appropriate long-term mitigation measures. Data fields within the NT require information from a variety of sources, including: National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policy information; community building, tax, and historical flood records; and field reconnaissance. Having detailed data helps to create a clearer picture of the property and its flood risk. Download the National Flood Mitigation Data Collection Tool.
The Repetitive Loss Property (RLP) Viewer 2.0 is a standalone application capable of connecting to any standard NT database in Access format (.MDB) that uses a Geographic Information System (GIS) to display point features representing floodprone properties over base map data such a roads, streams, county and community boundaries, and Q3 flood maps. New property point shape files can be produced by reading latitude and longitude coordinates stored inside the NT Access file for each location. Download the RLP Viewer software.
The NT User Guide (FEMA 497) has been developed to provide instructions and installation/software requirements for using the NT and installing the RLP Viewer. Please also see FEMA 497: Appendix A for system requirements and installation requirements.
