Appendix I: Discovery has been Revised
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has developed a revised version of Appendix I of FEMA's Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners. This Appendix will replace the April 2003 version of Appendix I that contained the Project Scoping Toolbox and the guidance for Scoping and Pre-Scoping activities. The June 2011 version of Appendix I contains the guidance for conducting Discovery. Discovery is the process to be applied by FEMA Regions, Cooperating Technical Partners, and other Mapping Partners in performing initial activities in a watershed of interest that may lead to a Risk MAP project being initiated.
If you have any questions on the revised Appendix I or Guidelines and Standards in general, please email FEMAGS@riskmapcds.com.
