Elevation

Elevation is the height of land above sea level.

Use elevation information to:

  • Evaluate whether flooding or storm surge will affect your property.
  • Look for closed basins where water can accumulate during heavy rains.
  • Evaluate the flow of water over land.
  • Determine the slope of the land.
