FEMA Letter of Map AmendmentFlood Map Research and LOMA Application Service
LiDAR, short for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing technology that operates on the principle of emitting laser pulses towards a target area and measuring the time it takes for the reflected light to return to the sensor.
This time-of-flight data combined with the known speed of light, allows the system to calculate the distance from the sensor to the target surface with remarkable precision.
- Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) using LiDAR: A document issued by FEMA showing that an existing structure — that is on naturally high ground— would not be inundated by the base flood.
- LiDAR allows us to bypass a surveyor and elevation certificate. This saves the homeowner time and money.
“I tried on my own, off-and-on for two years to work with FEMA and our lender, to get the forced place insurance removed and it wasn’t until I contacted you that I was able to get it done. You have saved us hundreds of dollars monthly and provided us with the correct information to end this constant financial thorn in our side. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!”
