Richland County GIS Mapping
Richland County GIS Maps
To help respond to the declared Natural Disaster in Richland County, the county GIS team has worked with numerous partners to provide recovery and assessment support. As part of that effort, several geospatial tools have been developed and are available for use by local authorities for coordination efforts and to the public for information including a Road and Dam Status Viewer, a Flood Inundation Tool, and a Flood Data Viewer. Thanks to Woolpert Inc. and Google for their support.


Richland County GIS Mapping
Is your property in the floodplain or floodway? You can find out using Richland County GIS mapping. Open the layers panel, choose Hydrology & Flooding, and turn on the FEMA Flood Zones layer. Use the search feature to find your property by street address or tax map number. Property owners will still need to confirm their property's status with FEMA or Richland County. (Note that this mapping application is the 'old version' which contains the FEMA floodway and floodplain overlays.)
