Mitigating the Economic Impact of Flood Events
Environmental hazards are costly for homeowners, businesses, and governments, and mitigating risk is paramount for affected areas such as flood zones. Flooding is one of the most common environmental disasters, and the risk associated is constantly changing because of new building, development, and weather patterns. ATTOM’s flood data serves to help make communities more resilient.
Our flood data supports science and the building of partnerships and long-term hazard mitigation planning. With detailed data, better decisions minimize the economic and social damage caused by floods.
ATTOM Flood Risk Data
ATTOM’s flood risk and flood zone data is sourced from the latest government resources. They are created from a series of spatial analyses carried out from publicly available U.S. Geological Survey data. With ATTOM’s flood risk data and maps, private and public planners can make better development decisions, well-informed property owners can purchase adequate insurance, and insurance providers can better judge their reinsurance needs.
