However, LiDAR data may be less accurate than certified elevations and may not capture the full risk for the building or lot.  For more information on the use of LiDAR data for Map Amendments, download: FACTSHEETFor more information on the standard LOMA process and requirements, please refer to How to Request a Map Amendment Guide.
