Overview: Risk MAP
• Five year effort to modernize maps
• Result: digital flood data and digital
maps for 92% of population
• Improved flood data quality
• Limited up-front coordination
• Scoping not mandatory
• Collaborative approach
• Goals: quality data, public
awareness, action that reduces risk
• Watershed-oriented
• Focus on up-front coordination
• Discovery is mandatory
3
The Vision for Risk MAP
Through collaboration with State, Local, and Tribal
entities, Risk MAP will deliver quality data that
increases public awareness and leads to action that
reduces risk to life and property

Discovery
Discovery is the process of data mining, collection, and analysis
with the goal of initiating a flood risk or mitigation project and risk discussions
with the watershed
When:
• After an area/watershed has been prioritized
• Before a Risk MAP project is scoped or funded
Required for new and updated…
• Flood studies
• Flood risk assessments
• Mitigation planning technical assistance projects
Why:
• Increases visibility of flood risk information, education, involvement
• Helps inform whether a Risk MAP project will occur in the watershed
