DNR Division of Water earns state GIS award
Start Date: 5/24/2018
Event Description:
For the sixth time in the past 10 years, a DNR project has been honored at the Indiana GIS Conference sponsored by the Indiana Geographic Information Council.

On May 11 at this year’s conference in Fort Wayne, the DNR Division of Water received the 2018 Excellence in GIS Award (State/Federal category) for its Zone A Floodplain Project.

GIS stands for geographic information system. Rooted in the science of geography, GIS gathers, manages and analyzes date, organizing it into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes.

The digital mapping project created a statewide data layer that provide detailed floodplain information for every major stream in Indiana not covered by Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) published by FEMA. The project modeled and mapped more than 18,000 miles of stream.

The project will benefit floodplain management in Indiana, improving safety and economic planning. It’s available through the Indiana Floodplain Information Portal (INFIP), and as an ArcGIS service.

The Division of Water’s Dave Knipe led the project. His team members are Steve Bradley, Amanda Brock, Jim Wertz, Chris Limiac, Joe Mallory, Darrin Miller, Jul Patankar, Adam Bales, Eric Moster, Tony Scott, and Bob Wilkinson.
