DETAILS
This course provides in-depth instruction and hands-on activities that develop the skills needed by floodplain managers and emergency planners to effectively use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools, with emphasis on Hazus-MH, for modeling the impacts on communities from riverine and coastal flooding. Those who complete this course will understand the roles that Floodplain Managers support, as well as, how geospatial technologies such as Hazus-MH can be used to protect communities beyond the minimum standards that Floodplain Managers are responsible for implementing.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
  • Define the roles and responsibilities of floodplain managers that can be supported by geospatial tools and data.
  • Explain how capabilities of Hazus-MH can support floodplain management practitioners.
  • Identify strategies for improving Hazus-MH inputs and other related GIS data in order to derive the most benefit from GIS tools when applied to floodplain management.
Prerequisites: E0313, Basic Hazus-MH and skills equivalent to those taught in E0190, ArcGIS for Emergency Managers.

Selection Criteria: Floodplain Managers, GIS Specialists, local planners and others with interest in floodplain management who wish to learn how to understand and apply GIS tools and data to support floodplain management goals.
