GIS in the Community Rating Program through the National Flood Insurance Program

Jesse Beck - Assistant City Engineer
City of Ponca City


The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), implemented to offer flood insurance to homeowners, is going broke and raising rates. To help combat this, the Community Rating System (CRS) looks at everything a community does “above and beyond” the NFIP minimum requirements and rewards that community with reduced flood insurance rates.This presentation takes a look at the role of GIS in the CRS. Changes in their points system has made the program very GIS-heavy, to the annoyance of some communities and to the benefit of others. Want to keep your rating? Thinking of joining the CRS? Better have your GIS department on board.The City of Ponca City completed its audit last year which required the production of nearly 60 maps. The process was all about following directions, but also about fitting our square pegs into their slightly less square holes. See how GIS helped us maintain our class 5 rating when other communities retrograded, and saved our citizens 25% on their policies while we were at it.
