This webinar will take a close look at the Federal Emergency Management Agency National Risk Index. The index is a new online mapping application that identifies the communities that face the most risk from 18 identified natural hazards. Using geographic informationsystem services, the index provides interactive web maps created at the county and census tract level for use in custom analyses. With this data, researchers can visualize natural hazard risk metrics, as well as expected annual losses, social vulnerabilities, and community resilience. Webinarparticipants will learn more about the motivation and methodology for creating the index, while also having an opportunity to visualize U.S. locations with the most and least risk to natural hazards. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers, so please join us to learn more about this new interactive tool.
