Planning Data Sets and Mapping Resources

This page provides a list of USACE and other federal agency vetted resources for use by project delivery teams and others who are in need of data sets and mapping tools.

  • CEQ Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool
    The purpose of the Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool is to help Federal agencies identify disadvantaged communities that are marginalized, underserved, and overburdened by pollution through publicly-available, nationally-consistent datasets. The tool also provides socioeconomic, environmental, and climate information to inform decisions that may affect these communities.

  • Coastal Resilience Evaluation and Siting Tool (CREST)
    CREST is a tool developed by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation that can be used to make informed decisions about the siting of restoration and resilience projects. The tool identifies Resilience Hubs, which are areas of open space where projects may have the greatest potential to benefit both human community resilience and fish and wildlife. Resilience Hubs incorporate multiple indices, which can also be explored through CREST.

  • CorpMaps USACE Operations Center (UOC)  Corps Castle
    Mapping tools and real-time data layers for the Corp's Operations Center.

  • Corps Project Notebook (CPN)  Corps Castle
    This is a single database of Corps projects to be used primarily for mapping purposes. The CPN is used for 1) feeding project location information to the USACE Enterprise GIS program (and other systems as required), 2) updating the Corps Civil Works Wall map, and 3) tracking project status on a variety of Corps initiatives; such as, the Comprehensive Evaluation of Project Datums (CEPD).

  • Data.Gov
    Vast collections of data, tools, mapping, and applications collected from federal, state, and local government agencies. Includes collections on topics including climate, ecosystems, disasters, and more.

  • eCoastal Tools and Software
    These eCoastal ArcMap toolbars support the eCoastal desktop applications. Collectively these individual toolbars form the eCoastal Toolbox. eCoastal only toolbars include: Survey Tools, Profile Loader, and SBAS-A.

  • EJScreen: Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool
    EJScreen is an environmental justice mapping and screening tool that provides a nationally consistent dataset and approach for combining environmental and demographic indicators. EJScreen users choose a geographic area; the tool then provides demographic and environmental information for that area and also includes a method for combining environmental and demographic indicators into EJ indexes.

  • Electronic Inland Chart Books for Navigations
    This site provides links to Inland Electronic Navigation Charts (IENCs), which the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has developed for much of the 8,200 miles of rivers in the U.S. Inland River System.

  • HEC-GeoFDA: Geospatial Preprocessor for Flood Damage Reduction Analysis
    HEC-GeoFDA was developed to allow users to view geospatial flood risk management (FRM) study data and simplify tasks that are commonly performed to prepare data for use in the Flood Damage Reduction Analysis (HEC-FDA) program. The HEC-GeoFDA software has been built with the specific needs of FRM teams in mind and is intended to make geospatial pre-processing more intuitive and less error prone. This program does not require planning model approval or certification as it is only pre-processing and formatting existing input data for use in HEC-FDA.

  • National Structure Inventory (NSI)
    The National Structure Inventory (NSI) is a database that improves upon the structure inventory data available through FEMA's HAZUS database. Using the NSI, USACE engineers, economists, and others can generate improved estimates of flood risk through HEC-FIA, HEC-FDA, HEC-WAT, CWMS, and HEC-LifeSim. The NIS is a particularly helpful resource for teams in the early iterations of a Planning study.

  • NOAA Digital Coast
    Coastal data, tools, training, and information designed to meet the needs of the coastal management community, all of which are vetted by NOAA.

  • NOAA's now COAST
    NOAA's web mapping portal to real time coastal observations, forecasts, and warnings.

  • SimSuite  Corps Castle
    A geospatial web mapping application with relevant data and tools designed for the Emergency Management and Flood Risk Management Communities of Practice.

  • USACE Geospatial Platform
    The USACE Geospatial Platform provides shared and trusted USACE geospatial data, services and applications for use by our partner agencies and the public. The Platform includes publicly available maps and web-mapping applications, including CorpsMap, the National Levee Database, National Inventory of Dams, and regional and project specific mapping apps.

  • USACE Survey Monument Archival and Retrieval Tool (U-SMART)  Corps Castle
    This tool is a Web map interface linked to the CorpsMap system, which keeps track of project control, and allows data to be submitted via PDF.

  • USGS National Map Datasets and Tools
    National data sets and mapping tools including topography, hydrography, and 3-d elevation datasets.

 Corps Castle Item is restricted to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, CAC required. Document will open in a new window.
