Flood Planning is used by mapping technicians in public safety, emergency management, public works, or planning agencies to analyze the impact of seasonal flooding scenarios and develop flood response plans. Flood Planning allows you to analyze the impact of flooding for multiple flood levels and create a flood impact plan for each flood level. It also allows you to develop preliminary levee plans and budget estimates for each levee.
The flood impact analysis identifies public infrastructure, critical facilities, and vulnerable residents that may be impacted. This information will help you develop a plan to mitigate the impact on the community, and budget for the cost of proposed levees that may be necessary.
Flood Planning requires specific software.
