As decision making around flooding grows increasingly complicated, municipalities across the country are turning to data analysis to make better informed decisions. While hazard modeling is incredibly useful, it only tells part of the story. Proprietary datasets and predictive models must be combined with granular, on-the-ground data to be made actionable. Historically, this data has been hard to come by. Join us for a presentation and discussion on the state of national flood risk data. We'll share the work Forerunner is doing with coastal communities and offer perspectives on ways that municipalities are empowered to act.
