Reducing Uncertainties in Catastrophe Loss Modelling: New Advances

December 12th, 2018|APIs, Asia, Australia, Bushfire, Earth Observation, Exposure, Geospatial Big Data Analytics, Hurricane, Insurance, Location Intelligence, Property Information, Risk, Tropical Cyclone, USA|

12 December 2018 This is our 2018 end-of-year review article. Catastrophe loss modelling, as a special type of environmental modelling, has been around for three decades. It captures all essential components of the classic risk equation, i.e. Risk = f (Hazard, Exposure, Vulnerability), and quantifies the likely economic or insured losses [...]

Advancing Tropical Cyclone Risk Analytics with Location Profile APIs

October 22nd, 2018|APIs, Asia, Australia, Emergency, Exposure, Hurricane, Insurance, Location Intelligence, Risk, Tropical Cyclone, Typhoon, USA|

22 October 2018 This project is focused on the analysis of historical tropical cyclones (also known as hurricanes or typhoons) and related wind records, including track positions, wind speed and central pressure. We have developed an automated process of carrying out such analyses on the cloud and enabled by web APIs. A [...]

Advancing Bushfire Risk Analytics with Location Profile APIs: Showcases

October 2nd, 2018|APIs, Australia, Bushfire, Elevation, Emergency, Exposure, Insurance, Location Intelligence, Property Information, Risk, USA|

2 October 2018 Bushfire (wildfire or forest fire) risk assessment has been a very common topic in research and practice. Many risk analysis projects, such as identifying likely causes of fire occurrences, mapping fire-prone areas and assessing Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) for buildings, are in place to assist the whole process of bushfire [...]

Advancing Flood Risk Analytics with Location Profile APIs: Showcases

September 25th, 2018|APIs, Asia, Australia, Elevation, Emergency, Exposure, Flood, Insurance, Location Intelligence, Property Information, Risk, USA|

25 September 2018 For flood risk assessment, one may develop flood hazard maps directly or just use existing maps which are often associated with modelled hazard return periods. The quality of each flood map is up to a range of factors, such as the quality of elevation and rainfall inputs, modelling methods, [...]
