Partners. Their award-winning work have been featured in story maps located on
FEMA’s GeoPlatform:

KDOW: http://arcg.is/1nqua0

GADNR: http://arcg.is/8uzTO

First place recipient, KDOW, was
recognized by FEMA for excellence in Communications, Outreach and Program
Management for integrating different technologies to communicate flood risk,
including virtual reality and live polling during meetings, and for embracing a
variety of partnerships.

Honorable
Mention winner, GADNR, was selected for excellence in the development of Tools
and Resources, like its GeorgiaDFIRM.com and Flood Risk Snapshot, which takes a
closer look at a property’s individualized flood risk. Their multiple
communication tools help officials and residents understand each step of the
Risk MAP process and provide resources for local floodplain managers.

These
story maps
are interactive products that use GIS maps, narrative text, images and video to
showcase CTP work.

The CTP Recognition Program
highlights the accomplishments of CTPs performing exceptional work in the areas
of Program Management Best Practices, Tools and Resources, Communications and Outreach,
and other key areas of the Risk MAP process.
