Description:
Abstract:
This polygon layer represents floodplains created from FEMA Flood Rate Insurance Maps (FIRM). The layer is symbolized to show the following flood hazard primary risk classifications using the "Unique Values, Many Fields" option, using the attribute fields named "FLD_ZONE" and "ZONE_SUBTY":

Flood Hazard Primary Risk Classification FLD_ZONE/ZONE_SUBTY field values

------------------------------------------------------------ ---------------------------------------------------

"Floodways" - (AE/FLOODWAY)

"1 % Annual Chance Flood Hazard" (aka 100-year flood zone) - (A/'null', AE/'null', AH/'null', and AO/'null')

"0.2 % Annual Chance Flood Hazard" (aka 500-year Flood Zone) - (X/0.2 PCT ANNUAL CHANCE FLOOD HAZARD)

"0.2 % Annual Chance, Protected by Levee" - (X/AREA WITH REDUCED FLOOD RISK DUE TO LEVEE)

IDNR documentation states -

“This database is an interim version of the Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) Database. It does not fully meet all DFIRM specifications as found in “Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners, Appendix L: Guidance for Preparing Draft Digital Data and DFIRM Database”.

"The DFIRM Database is derived from Flood Insurance Studies (FISs), previously published Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), flood hazard analyses performed in support of the FISs and FIRMs, and new mapping data, where available. The FISs and FIRMs are published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The specifications for the horizontal control of DFIRM data files are consistent with those required for mapping at a scale of 1:12,000.

"The DFIRM Database presents the flood risk information depicted on the FIRM in a digital format suitable for use in electronic mapping applications. The DFIRM database is a subset of the Digital FIS database that serves to archive the information collected during the FIS.”

Purpose:
IDNR documentation states –

“The purpose of this interim product is to provide much of the same information as the paper FIRM while moving toward compliance with the specifications found in “Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners, Appendix L: Guidance for Preparing Draft Digital Data and DFIRM Database.

"The FIRM is the basis for floodplain management, mitigation, and insurance activities for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Insurance applications include enforcement of the mandatory purchase requirement of the Flood Disaster Protection Act, which '... requires the purchase of flood insurance by property owners who are being assisted by Federal programs or by Federally supervised, regulated or insured agencies or institutions in the acquisition or improvement of land facilities located or to be located in identified areas having special flood hazards," Section 2(b) (4) of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973. In addition to the identification of Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), the risk zones shown on the FIRMs are the basis for the establishment of premium rates for flood coverage offered through the NFIP.”

Use_Constraints:
IDNR documentation states –

“This database is an interim version of the Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) Database. It does not fully meet all DFIRM specifications as found in “Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners, Appendix L: Guidance for Preparing Draft Digital Data and DFIRM Database”.

"The hardcopy FIRM and DFIRM and the accompanying FISs are the official designation of SFHAs and Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) for the NFIP. For the purposes of the NFIP, changes to the flood risk information published by FEMA may only be performed by FEMA and through the mechanisms established in the NFIP regulations (44 CFR Parts 59-78). These digital data are produced in conjunction with the hardcopy FIRMs and generally match the hardcopy map exactly. However the hardcopy flood maps and flood profiles are the authoritative documents for the NFIP.”

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Empty fields are present within the data table but have been left intact in anticipation of updates as this digital data is improved to FEMA DFIRM standards.

IDNR documentation states –

“The DFIRM Database consists of countywide vector files and associated attributes produced in conjunction with the hard copy FEMAFIRM. The published effective FIRM and DFIRM maps are issued as the official designation of the SFHAs. As such they are adopted by local communities and form the basis for administration of the NFIP. For these purposes they are authoritative. Provisions exist in the regulations for public review, appeals and corrections of the flood risk information shown to better match real world conditions. As with any engineering analysis of this type, variation from the estimated flood heights and floodplain boundaries is possible. Details of FEMA's requirements for the FISs and flood mapping process that produces these data are available in the Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners. Attribute accuracy was tested by manual comparison of source graphics with hardcopy plots and a symbolized display on an interactive computer graphic system. Independent quality control testing of FEMA’s DFIRM database was also performed.”

To obtain more detailed information in areas where Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) and/or floodways have been determined, users are encouraged to consult the Flood Profiles and Floodway Data and/or Summary of Stillwater Elevations tables contained within the FIS report that accompanies this DFIRM database. Flood elevation data presented in the FIS report must be used in conjunction with the FIRM for purposes of construction and/or floodplain management.”

Logical_Consistency_Report:
IDNR documentation states –

“When FEMA revises an FIS, adjacent studies are checked to ensure agreement between flood elevations at the boundaries. Likewise flood elevations at the confluence of streams studied independently are checked to ensure agreement at the confluence. The FIRM and the FIS are developed together and care is taken to ensure that the elevations and other features shown on the flood profiles in the FIS agree with the information shown on the FIRM. However, the elevations as shown on the FIRM are rounded whole-foot elevations. They must be shown so that a profile recreated from the elevations on the FIRM will match the FIS profiles within one half of one foot.”

Completeness_Report:
IDNR documentation states –

“Data contained in the DFIRM Database files reflect the content of the source materials. Features may have been eliminated or generalized on the source graphic, due to scale and legibility constraints. With new mapping, FEMA plans to maintain full detail in the spatial data it produces. However, older information is often transferred from existing maps where some generalization has taken place. Flood risk data are developed for communities participating in the NFIP for use in insurance rating and for floodplain management. Flood hazard areas are determined using statistical analyses of records of river flow, storm tides, and rainfall; information obtained through consultation with the communities; floodplain topographic surveys; and hydrological and hydraulic analysis. Both detailed and approximate analyses are employed. Generally, detailed analyses are used to generate flood risk data only for developed or developing areas of communities. For areas where little or no development is expected to occur, FEMA uses approximate analyses to generate flood risk data. Typically, only drainage areas that are greater than one square mile are studied.”

All available DFIRM zip files were downloaded from the IDNR Web site URL:

<http://www.in.gov/dnr/water/surface_water/hydro_hydraulic/flood_maps/index.html>

Zip files were extracted and each county’s, “S_Fld_Haz_Ar” shapefile was added to an ESRI ArcView 3.2 project. Geoprocessing was used to merge the 83 county files together to form a single, in work, statewide file. The “in work” designation reflects the interim nature of these files and the absence of 9 counties which have not yet been published.
