Identification Information
Title: Oregon Statewide Flood Hazard Database - FEMA Flood Insurance Studies - 2015
Originator: Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries
Abstract: This data layer is an element of the Oregon GIS Framework. This feature dataset contains the following feature classes: 1. FEMA Flood Insurance Study base flood elevation (BFE) lines: The FEMA_BFE feature class is a compilation of FEMA Flood Insurance Study base flood elevation (BFE) lines for the state of Oregon. The FEMA Flood Insurance Study base flood elevation (BFE) lines were derived from Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps and georeferenced paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps. 2. FEMA Flood Insurance Study inundation zones: The FEMA_FLD_HAZ_AR feature class is a compilation of FEMA Flood Insurance Study inundation zones for the state of Oregon. The FEMA Flood Insurance Study inundation zones were derived from Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps and georeferenced paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps. 3. FEMA Letter of Map Change (LOMC) Locations: The FEMA_LOMC feature class is a compilation of FEMA Letter of Map Change (LOMC) Locations for the state of Oregon. The FEMA Letter of Map Change (LOMC) Locations were downloaded from the FEMA Map Service Center Website. The LOMC points were precisely located using county-level assessor data, orthoimagery, and lidar hillshades. 4. FEMA Flood Insurance Study profile baselines: The FEMA_PROFIL_BASLN feature class is a compilation of FEMA Flood Insurance Study profile baselines for the state of Oregon. The FEMA Flood Insurance Study profile baselines were derived from Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps and paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps. 5. FEMA Flood Insurance Study cross section (XS) lines: The FEMA_XS feature class is a compilation of FEMA Flood Insurance Study cross section (XS) lines for the state of Oregon. The FEMA Flood Insurance Study cross section (XS) lines were derived from Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps and paper Flood Insurance Rate Maps. See feature class metadata for detailed information about each feature class.
Purpose: To provide a statewide version of FEMA Flood Insurance Study base flood elevation (BFE) lines, FEMA Flood Insurance Study inundation zones., FEMA Letter of Map Change (LOMC) Locations, FEMA Flood Insurance Study profile baselines, and FEMA Flood Insurance Study cross section (XS) lines

Use: Flood hazard elements do not depict all flood hazards in the State of Oregon. Flood studies tend to focus on developed areas, generally with drainage areas greater than one square mile. Not all water courses in the State of Oregon have mapped flood inundation areas (or zones). Furthermore, land areas outside of mapped flood zones are subject to flooding. The State of Oregon makes no warranty whatsoever as to the accuracy or completeness of any information contained in flood hazard elements. The State of Oregon shall not be responsible for any claims attributable to errors, omissions or other inaccuracies in the information contained in flood hazard elements. In no event shall the State of Oregon be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential loss or damage of any nature caused to any person, party or entity as a result of use of the information set forth herein. The State of Oregon hereby disclaims liability for any such loss or damage.
