This collection contains map data often used as base layers for hydrologic and geographic analysis, organized by these categories:
- Addresses and Boundaries (Texas address points, counties, Councils of Government boundaries, Texas Dept of Public Safety districts and regions)
- Hydrology (streams, gages, dams, catchments, watersheds)
- Transportation (Texas roads, railways, bridges, low water crossings)

The Addresses, Transportation and Dams datasets are for Texas only, but the remaining Hydrology data covers an area of 39 HUC6 basins around the Harvey zone across southeast Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas.

These data layers generally date to 2015-2016, so could be considered reasonably representative of the base layers at the time of Hurricane Harvey.

The Texas Address and Base Layers Story Map referenced here [1] is an interactive web app supported by Esri ArcGIS Online, that provides visualization and access to specific data layers for Texas only.

One other base layer is the Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). This is used by the emergency response community to anticipate areas where social support systems are weaker, and residents may be more likely to need help.
