FEMA Introducing a New Data Visualization Tool

FEMA introduced a new interactive tool Jan. 7 that allows the public to explore currently-available FEMA grant data. On the site, you will be able to see a visual representation of federal grant data as it relates to fire, preparedness, mitigation and public assistance. The tool also visualizes disaster declarations by state, hazard and county.

The tool is in BETA because FEMA is looking for comments on how to improve it. Email your feedback to: fema-new-media@fema.dhs.gov. FEMA will continue to add data and update the visual based on feedback in the coming months.

The OpenFEMA data used in the visualization were derived from the publicly available datasets on fema.gov and data.gov. According to the press release, FEMA is committed to updating these existing datasets in a timely manner and as feasible, to provide new datasets for our external partners to manipulate and use.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact FEMA’s Intergovernmental Affairs Division at (202) 646-3444 or at FEMA-IGA@fema.dhs.gov.
