Mapping Obstacles

Sources that require funding to obtain maps or information:
1) Flood Maps: FEMA @ http://www.fema.gov/hazard/map/flood.shtm
Cost for county information varies per area – estimated $120.00
Cost for community map varies – estimated $1.50
2)

Please continue to add to the list…

Obstacles in obtaining documentation and information:
1) Online interactive maps only show a portion of the area needed in higher resolution. Need to copy and paste several regions of the maps together to create an entire map of the city needed.
Example Sites: Google Maps @ http://maps.google.com
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources @ http://dnrmaps.wi.gov/imf/imf.jsp?site=SurfaceWaterViewer.wetlands
FEMA @ http://www.fema.gov/hazard/map/flood.shtm

Please continue to add to the list…
