About Flood Map Service Center

The FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC) is the official public source for flood hazard information produced in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Use the MSC to find your official flood map, access a range of other flood hazard products, and take advantage of tools for better understanding flood risk.


Risk MAP Customer and Data Services (CDS) released a Service Pack for the FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC) on January 30th to improve file download capabilities. With this release, only HTTP download capabilities were deployed, so users will only be able to complete direct downloads of Hazus state datasets and Letter of Map Change (LOMC) Batch Files. For more information about direct vs. managed download capabilities, read through slides 7-8 of the Hazus Online Download Tutorial.
