What is Flood Inundation Mapping?
The National Weather Service Inundation Mapping Interface is a web based tool that is integrated into the AHPS web suite and provides flood inundation maps that show the extent of flooding expected spatially over a given area. This is a geographic information system (GIS) project that ONS developed for the National Weather Service Office of Hydrologic Development in conjunction with the Office of Climate Water and Weather Services, US Army Corps of Engineers and US Geological Survey. ONS has developed 94 sites to date with additional sites planned to be completed in the next few years since becoming a national level project.
