Flood Risk America flood mapping services can provide accurate FEMA-approved and insurance-certified information. Current flood map reports in the Columbus area can be outdated and inaccurate. This may result in bloated insurance premiums and in-efficient flood prevention solutions. FRA flood maps are created using LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging Technology).
The unique LiDAR technology accuracy is attributed to its pulsed laser used to calculate an object’s variable distances from the earth’s surface. Conventional methods result in low accuracy results and are unable to produce high-resolution digital elevation model (DEM) data. Having accurate information to prevent flood damage to your property is essential to protection. Learn more about how Flood Risk America can help you update your property’s flood map.
