BigData Earth Develops New-generation Property Location Information for Addresses in the U.S. and Australia
3 November 2016
For industries such as asset management, real estate and insurance underwriting, the location information of assets (e.g. buildings, infrastructure facilities, and agricultural land) is among the most important. Through deep research and development, BigData Earth creates new-generation property location metrics and insights by integrating various thematic layers (including terrain, land cover, climate change, natural hazard risk and the environment) from a single dimension to 2D/3D/4D. Each attribute is examined across geographic scales, from the most granular level (i.e. site level) to street and suburb levels.
Detailed property location profiles or information reports for addresses in the U.S. and Australia are being developed and offered. BigData Earth researches more than 20 fresh location metrics, develops customised mapping and analysis systems, and makes information-rich reports (typically in PDF format). An integrated report includes the following components:
Location profile for terrain
Location profile for neighbourhood vegetation cover
Location profile for natural hazard risk, where contextual and process-oriented geospatial layers are included to augment traditional risk scores
Location profile for climate warming trend
Location profile for population and housing using national census data
The new property location information report goes beyond common imagery and basemaps, and focuses on spatial measurement and modelling which enables users to make informed location-based decisions.
This whole project demonstrates the application potential of location intelligence products by using Geospatial Big Data Analytics, Global Earth Observation and Cloud Computing.
