PBS&J Announced the DFIRM Tools Extension v1.0

PBS&J announced the DFIRM Tools Extension v1.0 for ESRI ArcGIS 8.2, a software extension designed to quickly and easily update and produce flood maps that meet the new FEMA DFIRM (Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map) specifications. Available on CD, DFIRM Tools Extension v.1.0 incorporates FEMA’s Standard DFIRM Database Specifications and offers a range of cartographic, layout and data handling features developed to work within ESRI’s ArcGIS 8.2 framework. The tool automatically molds the user’s floodplain data into FEMA’s specifications and builds the database that links the data layers together. Drop-down menus make it easy for users to select a region, access DFIRM data and apply FEMA’s cartographic specifications. Once selected, standard information is automatically pulled from the DFIRM database. In minutes, the analyst can produce a standard DFIRM layout with custom map user notes and title block. Updated base maps, including digital orthophoto quadrangles (DOQs), can be loaded onto the working map tile with the click of a button. The extension tool’s layout feature allows users to create a custom FEMA DFIRM frame by selecting from a list of options that includes map print size, legends, special notes and much more.
