Using Flood Maps

Course Description

The rising costs and dangers associated with coastal flooding are motivating communities to assess the people, places, and resources at risk. During this live interview with a guest speaker, participants will hear first-hand experiences from field experts who have used maps to engage stakeholders in discussions about local hazards and risk. Participants will learn how to best use local flood exposure maps when working with citizens and local officials.

This live webinar supports the work of community land use, hazards, and resilience planners. It replaces the Roadmap for Adapting to Coastal Risk webinar.

Note: This webinar does not include discussion about FEMA flood maps that support the National Flood Insurance Program.

You will learn how to

  • Recognize challenges and techniques for using these maps to facilitate productive conversations about improving community resilience to coastal hazards
  • Prepare for productive conversations about community resilience
