Real-Time Community Flood Threat Mapping
On October 29, 2009, a coalition of scientists, community leaders, and emergency management officials met to pursue new ways to portray the threat of flooding to better warn people during flood events. This meeting, sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the NOAA-National Weather Service (NWS) had more than 80 attendees present either in person or via an online webinar. This group agreed to continue to move forward to the goal of Community Flood Threat Mapping in real-time for implementation at National Weather Service forecast locations throughout the Southeast United States. Documents and presentations from the meeting are available below.
A final agenda () of the October 29th meeting is available.
