Summary
Abstract: The Texas Hazard Mitigation Package (THMP) is an online digital geographic data
resource for hazard analysis in Texas.

When a specific hazard has been determined a potential threat, the user may
wish to dig deeper by viewing detailed hazard maps and base map information to
see the hazard in it's real-world context.

Users who wish to quantify their risk to assist in hazard mitigation planning
(scenario generation and loss estimation) may do so by downloading data into
their own mapping/GIS systems where they can determine specific local impacts
using this data and other accessible local data.
