Hazard Explorer

Hazard Explorer—a collection of location-enabled tools and resources to inform risk assessments, planning, and exercises—has been sunsetted and is no longer available. Please consider the following tools.



National Risk Index

The National Risk Index (similar to the Hazard explorer) is an online dataset tool to help illustrate the United States communities most at risk for various natural hazards. It was designed and built by FEMA in close collaboration with various stakeholders and partners in academia; local, state and federal government and; private industry.


Resilience Analysis & Planning Tool

The Resilience Analysis and Planning Tool (RAPT) is a free, publicly available geographic information systems (GIS) tool to help emergency managers and community partners at all GIS skill levels visualize and assess potential challenges to community resilience. RAPT supports emergency management decisions for outreach, planning, mitigation, response and recovery

Climate Risk and Resilience Portal

Climate change is increasing the complexity, intensity, and frequency of disasters. Understanding future climate conditions in cities and towns across the United States is necessary to prepare for future climate realities. To address this challenge, the Climate Risk and Resilience Portal (ClimRR) was developed by the Center for Climate Resilience and Decision Science (CCRDS) at Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with AT&T and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).


ESFLG Model & Data Inventory

ESFLG Model and Data Inventory (MODI) is an inventory of disaster-related datasets and models useful to decision makers planning for, and responding to, disasters. The inventory was based on a federal interagency effort led by FEMA and the Modeling and Data Working Group (MDWG). The MDWG was appointed by the Emergency Support Function Leadership Group (ESFLG) to identify and characterize the models used to support operational decision making in the context of emergency management
