Procedure Memorandum No. 65 - Guidance for Additional Enhanced Dataset Definitions and Flood Risk Database Standards
FEMA introduced the Flood Risk Database with the issuance of Operating Guidance for Version 1.0 of Flood Risk Data and Products in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010. The Flood Risk Database (FRD) is a required product to be delivered with all FY2010-funded and subsequent studies/mapping projects. This memorandum provides Version 1.0 of the FRD standards. For FY2010-funded and subsequent Risk MAP studies/mapping projects that include Flood Risk Database deliverables, Mapping Partners will utilize the additional enhanced dataset definitions as necessary and will deliver Flood Risk Databases that follow the standards found in this guidance. Risk MAP conversion projects will utilize those same standards to the extent that schedule and scope of the projects allow.
