Cover photo for the document: Standard Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) Database Prototype
A Standard Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) Database has been designed to facilitate DFIRM production. The new FEMA GIS databases will store the digital data used in the map production process, as well as the backup engineering data for the floodplain studies. These databases will provide a standard, systematic method for FEMA to distribute comprehensive details of its flood studies to the public in a digital format. Storing and distributing these data in digital format has significant advantages for ease of storage, records search, and distribution. The FEMA database can be used for automated analysis and map updates that are not possible with the current paper products. These Guidelines and Specifications were subsequently included in and superseded by Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners in February 2002.
