FEMA Enhances Map Service Website

Posted on June 9, 2014

This summer, FEMA will launch a redesigned and greatly enhanced FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC).  These changes will improve the user experience and will also affect some existing business processes for national and regional stakeholders. Significant business impacts include:

  • All flood hazard products will be available free of charge, and the new products “catalog” will have enhanced functionality; therefore, the MSC Store, the Digital Post Office (DPO), Express Document Delivery (EDDie), and EDDie for Disasters tools will no longer be required.
  • Current paid revolving accounts and subscriptions, such as LOMC (Letter of Map Changes) and FMSIS (Flood Map Status Information Service) subscriptions, will be discontinued. A new, free subscription system will be stood up as part of the new MSC.
  • All direct links to MSC pages other than the homepage will no longer work as intended and will redirect to the MSC homepage.

If you have any questions about the MSC redesign or these Previews, please contact the CDS Outreach Team at outreach@riskmapcds.com.
