Where are your assets located? Are they at risk of damage from predicted flooding? Environmental risks are hard to prepare for without accurately understanding the location of your assets and their proximity to potential hazards. The ability to visualise your assets with any potential risks on a map, enables you to easily identify assets that would be affected and mitigate the risk by planning for the potential disruption.

It also provides the ability to accurately understand the geographic extent of an actual event so that potentially fraudulent claims can be identified.
