Vertical Datums and Advisory Base Flood Elevation Maps: What You Need to Know

posted Feb 8, 2013, 5:34 AM by Samara Ebinger
When comparing elevations on the Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) maps with elevation information on Elevation Certificates and other documents from different sources, care must be taken to ensure all elevations are in the same vertical datum. Failure to do so can result in improper structure design which can have serious implications in terms of complying with community and state building requirements. Learn more about vertical datums on the Vertical Datums and Advisory Base Flood Elevation Maps webpage.
