NOTICE: Due to recent upgrades to our web hosting capability, all GIS web services now utilize SSL encryption and the GIS server url string has been updated to the ESRI standard url string /arcgis/rest/services. Therefore all web service requests should use https protocols and /arcgis/rest url string. If you are unable to access the GIS web services using the legacy http protocols and /REST/services you will need to update your bookmarks and application urls. For ArcGIS Online users, use the following AGO-Assistant to update urls in web maps and applications, /gis.fema.gov/REST/services are now located at /gis.fema.gov/arcgis/rest/services. We have implemented a url redirect from the legacy url to the new url to ease disruptions during this transition period. More info.FEMA Enterprise GIS Services
