Fidelity National Financial’s LSI Flood Services Offering Online Flood Map Tool

May 31, 2005

LSI Flood Services, a division of Fidelity National Financial Inc. and a provider of flood determination services for the real estate and lending industries, announced the launch of Web Maps, its comprehensive online flood map solution.

To provide maximum detail and accuracy when illustrating a property’s relationship to a flood zone, this solution combines an interactive property search feature with a selection of map images.

The interactive property search feature in the Web Maps solution is powered by a MapQuest interface. This interface enables the plotted point for each address to be adjusted to more appropriately reflect the accurate location of a specified property. Once a subject property is plotted, users have the option to view two different types of full-color flood maps: FEMA Images and Digital GIS Coverages.

While the FEMA maps are the controlling documents from which flood zone determinations are made, GIS Coverages reportedly offer more specific and regularly updated street information in a visually appealing format. Both the FEMA and GIS flood map images in Web Maps can be overlaid onto a satellite image of a specific property and its surrounding area. Layering these images reportedly provides more specific detail about the subject structure in relation to streets and flood zone areas.

LSI Flood Services will demonstrate its new Web Maps solution in its booth at the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Conference in Marco Island, Florida from May 31 – June 3.
