FEMA introduces a new data visualization tool on FEMA.gov

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is committed to increasing the transparency and accessibility of its data. On Jan. 7, a new interactive tool came online that allows the public to explore currently-available FEMA grant data. The site provides a visual representation of federal grant data as it relates to fire, preparedness, mitigation, and public assistance. Also visualized are disaster declarations by state, hazard, and county. The tool is in the beta testing phase, and comments are welcomed at FEMA-IGA@fema.dhs.gov. New data and visual updates will be posted in the coming months based on public feedback. The OpenFEMA data used in the visualization were derived from the publicly available datasets on fema.gov and data.gov. FEMA is committed to updating these existing datasets in a timely manner and as feasible, to provide new datasets for our external partners to manipulate and use.
