Description

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources directly
produces the state’s Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps
(DFIRMs) under FEMA’s Map Modernization Program. This
presentation will discuss how we use an ArcMap 9.2 extension,
Flood Map Desktop 9™ (FMD), to create FEMA-compliant
DFIRM data, metadata, and map deliverables. The FMD tool
has greatly improved our program’s work flow and efficiency.
As we demonstrate the FMD structure and FMD toolbars, we
will discuss geodatabase creation and management, topology,
domain tables, formatting style files, symbology, label creation
and storage, data exporting, and project settings which form the
base templates for our maps.

Introduction Map Modernization Project: Administered by FEMA through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Upgrade floodplain maps by creating and distributing them in a GIS format In the past, maps were produced by FEMA and distributed on paper All told, 47 of the state’s most populous counties will have new Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMS) when this project is completed

Introduction Mapping Information Platform (MIP): FEMA’s online application tool: Great for project management Handy for remote access since desktop ArcGIS is not needed However, because it is run from FEMA’s server with numerous users Nationwide, it is very SLOW.
