Coastal Flood Risk Analysis and Mapping Process
FEMA identifies coastal flood hazards, assesses flood risks, and provides accurate flood risk data to help drive communities toward mitigation actions and achieve greater resilience. This infographic presents the coastal flood hazard analysis and mapping process, used to conduct flood hazard analysis and mapping studies to produce FIRMs (Flood Insurance Rate Maps). These flood maps are used to administer the National Flood Insurance Program and they provide information to communities for the adoption and enforcement of floodplain management measures to help mitigate the effects of flooding.
