Subject:  Soliciting Comments on the Experimental River Forecast

          Center Decision Support Map Through January 1, 2014

     

NWS is seeking comments on the Experimental River Forecast Center

(RFC) Decision Support Map through January 1, 2014. The NWS West

Gulf RFC and Arkansas Red Basin RFC are testing a new Hydrologic

Decision Support Map service that melds a variety of spatial data

products on the same background map to aide analysis and decision

making.

 

The Hydrologic Decision Support Map is a Google Map-based tool

containing many of the data sets needed 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 and a description of how to use the map

are available at:
