FEMA Region 6 has developed a suite of products to assist community officials and their local Geographic Information Systems (GIS) staff as they pair local data with the flood risk datasets delivered during a flood risk study in their watershed.

Local community GIS and technical staff are encouraged to participate in the “Virtual Brown Bag” sessions by registering online for the specific dates that cover the datasets they are interested in learning to use. Some of the datasets covered include: Depth Grids, Changes Since Last FIRM, Percent Annual Chance and Percent 30 Year Chance Grids, Water Surface Elevation Grids, and the Average Annualized Loss (AAL).
