Retrieve Flood, Census, and USPS Data

If your map preferences are set to retrieve flood and census data, TOTAL retrieves the flood and census data for your subject property along with the USPS data for all report properties in the third step of the Map Wizard.

  1. Review the flood and census data information retrieved by TOTAL.  The confidence levels are displayed using red, yellow, or green indicators.  If you're satisfied with the data, check the Insert box beside each item to transfer the data to your report.
  2. Next, review the USPS information for the properties in your report.  As with flood and census data, TOTAL displays the confidence levels for the data using red, yellow, and green indicators.  If you're satisfied with the format of the USPS address and zip code, check the Insert boxes beside each item to transfer them to your report.  If information is not available, or if you are certain that the information in your report is correct and do not want to have the data transfer, uncheck the boxes next to the properties, and check the option to Assume all addresses are USPS standardized to bypass the UAD E&O check.

  3. For your convenience, TOTAL also allows you to retrieve directions from your office to each property included in your map.  Click View Route to review those directions and click Print Route if you want to print off a copy.  Click here for more information on driving directions.
  4. When finished, click Next to continue through the Map Wizard and retrieve a flood map, or click Finish to transfer your map and data to your report.
