Bodies of Water

Determine the distance from the property to nearby lakes, rivers, ponds or coast.

The National Flood Data API returns the distance to the bodies of water shown in the map below whenever that distance is less than 10 kilometers. The bodies of water are provided by the US Geological Survey's National Hydrography Dataset. The data response includes the name of the Body of Water.


National Flood Data was started in 2016 with two contracts to build a reliable flood data service for two real estate data companies. Insurance companies began turning to us shortly afterwards and are now our primary customers. Our approach is very simple: we provide a very reliable, accurate and easy-to-use service and our customers tell us what they need next. We are located in Seattle, Washington. When you call us, we answer the phone.
