Subject: Soliciting Comments on the Experimental River Forecast

         Center Decision Support Map through February 1, 2013

      

NWS is seeking user comments on the Experimental River Forecast

Center Decision Support Map through February 1, 2013.  The NWS

West Gulf River Forecast Center is testing a new Hydrologic

Decision Support Map service that brings together a variety of

spatial data products on the same background map for analysis and

decision making.  The Hydrologic Decision Support Map is a Google

map-based tool that contains many of the data sets necessary to

make water resources, flood, and emergency management decisions,

and provides stakeholders the flexibility to create customized

maps and the ability to scale maps beyond a single RFC boundary.

 

The Decision Support Map, along with a description of how to use

the map, will be posted online on August 1, at:
