National Flood Mitigation Data Collection Tool (FEMA 497 CD)
The National Tool (NT) was developed for Nationwide use to gather information about floodprone structures in order to evaluate appropriate long-term mitigation measures. Having detailed data helps to create a clearer picture of the property and its flood risk. 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 GIS to display point features representing floodprone properties. To download the RLP Viewer go to http://www.fema.gov/library/viewRecord.do?id=1447. An effort to upgrade FEMA computers to the Windows 7 OS will begin in August 2011. The FEMA standard image will not include Microsoft Access. If you use NT or RLP, or other applications that use MS Access databases, you can request to have MS Access installed to your FEMA PC by filling out the MS Access Request Form. For additional questions, please see the MS Access FAQs. A link to both the Access Request Form and the FAQs sheet can be found below.
