Mapping the Zone: Summary of Technical Findings


This booklet summarizes some of the key technical findings from Mapping the Zone: Improving Flood Map Accuracy, a National Academies report released in 2009 that was sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The report was produced by an ad hoc committee of experts convened by two units within the Academies: the Board on Earth Sciences and Resources’ Mapping Science Committee and the Water Science and Technology Board.
