This dataset contains incident reports recorded by Norfolk Police Department that occurred over the last five years. This dataset enables citizens to search incidents by type, location, date and time of occurrence.
CrimeMapping.com allows citizens to query and map recent crimes and incidents within the City’s borders. Crime data is extracted on a regular basis from each department's records system so that the information being viewed through a Web browser is the most current available.
******Disclaimer: This data should not be relied upon for title examination or real estate closing requirements as deferral and tax relief programs may impact the amount due. This data does not include nuisance abatement liens.
This dataset includes data on all real estate parcels in the city of Norfolk that are at least one quarter behind on taxes. Payments are processed as received requiring frequent updates to the data for accuracy. City deferral and senior tax relief programs may impact r-portable data. The tax rate, penalty rate and interest rate are prescribed by city ordinance.
First, a caveat: the NFIP data does NOT provide information specific to individual homes or parcels. This information is protected under federal law. All personal identifying information about policy holders has been redacted, and data has been anonymized to census tract, reported ZIP code, and one decimal point digit of latitute and longitude. If mapped, flood insurance policies and claims may appear to be clustered at a particular location due to this anonymization.
What all that means: you cannot search for an address to see whether it has flooded.
However, among many things, this data shows flooding trends in Norfolk over the last 40+ years. It shows the census tracts that flood most frequently. And it shows where the largest number and highest value of claims occur.
FEMA believes this historic release of NFIP data promotes transparency, reduces complexity related to public data requests, and improves how stakeholders interact with and understand the program. This is the largest, most comprehensive release of NFIP data coordinated by FEMA to date. This dataset allows for customizable searches to create reports, analyze and visualize present and historical NFIP data faster and easier than before.
This data will help FEMA build a national culture of preparedness by providing claims and policy information people need to make better choices about their flood risk and the insurance they need to protect the life they've built.
Norfolk's Open Data team extracted city-specific information from the FEMA dataset. The dataset included here represents almost 6,000 claims on record from 1977 through 2019, totaling 67 million dollars in damage in the City of Norfolk.
