MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes critical issues for floodplain mapping project scoping in the Georgia Map Modernization Program. The entire State of Georgia is currently being remapped through the Georgia Flood Map Modernization Program. This paper details issues that community, State, and Federal officials will face during the early phases of the project and how those issues will impact the final product. The flood map study scoping process is described, including the following major steps: the identification of map update needs, library research, determination of the base map to be used, the conduct of the scoping meeting with the communities, the cursory review of data submitted for inclusion in the mapping project, the determination of study methodologies, the development of the proposed paneling scheme, the finalization of the scope of work, the review of the budget versus needs, project management, and database population.
