Title: FEMA's Mapping Information Platform
Url: https://hazards.fema.gov
Publisher: United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency
Description: Through the Project Impact initiative, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) have formed a National Partnership in part aimed at providing multi-hazard maps and information to U.S. residents, business owners, schools, community groups, and local governments via the Internet. The primary attraction of this portal to geographic knowledge is the online Hazard Map, a interactive mapping tool which enables visitors to generate a map of their area of interest simply by entering a zip code, city name or Congressional District and selecting from several hazard types: flood, earthquakes, hail storm, hurricane, tornado, or wind storm.
