Franklin County Flood Insurance Rate Maps

Many of you know I work with floodplains. As a GIS guy the biggest project I've been working on for the past few years is FEMA's Map Modernization program. I work alongside with Engineers (Enginerds) to update flood insurance maps and revise flood hazard boundaries on a County-wide basis.

Not sure if any of you caught this article in the Dispatch a few weeks back, but the Franklin County maps are going throught the final regulatory steps to become official. This Dispatch article does a prety good job of summarizing the impacts of the revisiions... some people get added and some people get removed. Click on the title to learn more.
