The city of Lewes Mitigation Planning Team will host a presentation on FirstMap, the state centralized repository for commonly used geospatial data layers, at 7 p.m. June 27 at the Lewes Public Library, 111 Adams Ave.
The FirstMap service includes an online portal for self-service data discovery and mapping. Online maps and datasets are useful for those looking for information on topics such as hazard mitigation, climate change or promoting community resilience. State representatives that host and help maintain FirstMap from the state of Delaware Department of Technology and Information, the Delaware Office of State Planning Coordination and the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Coastal Programs will be on hand to demonstrate the technology and discuss ways to use it to gather information or support planning initiatives.
Attendees will be able to see FirstMap in operation and obtain information on how they can access the online system on their own using any internet connected device. Attendees are also welcome to bring a Wi-Fi enabled laptop or tablet to connect to FirstMap. In addition to learning about FirstMap, the Lewes Mitigation Planning Team will share information about its ongoing and future activities as well as discuss questions or concerns raised by attendees.
