FEMA Map Service Center
The Map Service Center is the official government distribution center for digital and paper flood hazard mapping products created by FEMA in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Here you can view all current flood maps (Flood Insurance Rate Maps). You can also create a FIRMette, which is a copy of these maps that will fit on an 8 ½" x 11" sheet of paper. FIRMettes have the same legal status as the normal size maps and can be used for all aspects of the NFIP, including floodplain management, flood insurance, and enforcement of mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements.
NOAA Coastal Services Center
Cayuga County has contributed its LIDAR-derived elevation data to the LIDAR data collection housed and distributed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Coastal Services Center. Access to the data is provided through the Center's interactive map. The elevation data for Cayuga County is available in a variety of formats, projections, datums, and units.

Web Soil Survey
The Web Soil Survey (WSS) operated by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides soil data and information produced by the National Cooperative Soil Survey.

NY State Historic Preservation Office
The New York State Preservation Office‘s GIS access web site provides data relating to State and National Registers of Historic Places in New York State as well as Archaeological Sensitivity Zones in New York State. The general information contained in the State and National Registers of Historic Places web page can provide an early indication of the presence or absence of listed historic properties in or near a project area. The likely need for an archeological survey of a project area can be ascertained by determining if the project is within a sensitive area on the Archeological Sensitivity Maps.
