The interactive, data-based mapping interface enables users to visually explore individual data sets, with minimal technical expertise, to better understand what is driving a community’s natural hazard risk. The risk index leverages available source data for natural hazards and community risk factors to develop a baseline for risk measurement in each U.S. county and Census tract.
