Flood Map

FloodMap is a suite of public domain tools to evaluate flood risk at specific locations accessing critical flood hazard information from reputable sources such as Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and United States Geological Survey (USGS).

FloodMap™ Desktop

FloodMap Desktop (FMD) is Atkins’ premier flood hazard mapping system that operates as an Esri® ArcGIS software extension.

The system requires no third-party add-ons for cartographic labelling or data processing. The current release FMD (Version 11) is updated to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Risk MAP specifications and the only publicly available Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) mapping software platform on the market.

FMD enables users to create the Discovery Database and Map, the Flood Risk Database and Map, as well as the Flood Risk Report and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) Report. FMD has enhanced quality checks to verify that data meet FEMA quality control requirements, including Data Validation Tool (DVT) and Mapping Information Platform (MIP) submissions. FMD contains topological rules to ensure the database feature classes are topologically correct. Other tools ensure that data are created correctly and loaded into the database with the proper attribution and geometric features.
