I have been using paper flood maps and scanning them into my reports. I am now thinking of using the Alamode flood maps. I use Bradford Technologies appraiser tool box as my software.

Any comments and advise would be appreciated.

Regards to all

I have a disc with the maps.

My standard statement is:

"Flood Zone appears to be "*"; subject to Flood Certification."

Why make this harder than it is???

If it does look like any part of the site might be in a flood zone, I use my disc and copy/paste the applicable section of the map - or use the freebie on line one if I think it's newer than what's on my disc.

Look, they are all going to go by whatever the flood certification says anyway no matter what you say. Just try to be as accurate as you can and defer to the flood certification.

I use Interflood and love it. The GEO-Locator is usually very accurate. The maps import easily, and look good. I played around with the free ones, but the web site was painfully slow, and I just didn't like the way the freebie Q-3's looked.

I scan in the free FEMA maps too. There may be a way to import them directly into the report, but I don't know how. Maybe one of technical gurus here could tell us how.
