Flood Hazard Mapping Publications



FEMA develops multimedia tutorials to provide in-depth training on different facets of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and to support public education and outreach efforts as part of the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) strategy.

These resources are intended for the general public (home, property, business owners), mapping professionals, mitigation planners and community officials interested in learning about available NFIP tools, including how to read a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) Report and how to use FEMA flood hazard mapping software applications utilized in the NFIP.
