The primary mission of the Mapping and Engineering Standards Committee is to provide policy guidance and support for floodplain mapping and engineering issues to foster reduction of future losses, costs and human suffering caused by flooding. Historically, this committee has had major impacts on FEMA’s Flood Mapping Program, requirements for map modernization, Risk MAP and the NFIP and addressing technical issues related to flood hazards such as levees and dams.
