FEMA Launches Disaster Declaration Data Visualization Tool

Posted on: June 19th, 2015 by Jessica Unger | SHEP

FEMA data visualization TXFEMA is committed to increasing the transparency and accessibility of data. FEMA recently launched a new data visualization tool that enables the public to see when and where disaster declarations have occurred across the country. With hurricane season underway, the tool helps educate people about the history of hurricanes and other disasters in their communities.

The Public Data Visualization Tool allows users to view and interact with OpenFEMA data. Through an interactive platform, users can view the history of disaster declarations by hazard type or year and financial support provided to states, tribes, and territories, and access public datasets for further research and analysis. This tool builds off of the beta launch in January where users were able to see a visual representation of federal grant data as it relates to fire, preparedness, mitigation, individual assistance, and public assistance. The FEMA data used in the visualization are from the publicly available datasets on www.fema.gov and www.data.gov.

FEMA Introduces New Data Visualization Tool

As part of the commitment to increasing the transparency and accessibility of data, FEMA introduced a new interactive tool to allow the public to explore currently available FEMA grant data. The tool, available at www.fema.gov/data-visualization, allows the public to see a visual representation of the agency’s federal grant data as it relates to fire, preparedness, mitigation and public assistance. The tool also visualizes disaster declarations by state, hazard and county.

 

The tool is in BETA because FEMA is seeking comments on how it can be improved, so comments and suggestions are welcome. FEMA will continue to add data and update the visual based on feedback in the coming months.

 

The OpenFEMA data used in the visualization were derived from the publicly available datasets on www.fema.gov and www.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.
