"Our clients asked for wind pool data. We delivered."
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2017
HazardHub, the nation’s only third-generation supplier of geospatial risk data, has announced the release of WindpoolHubTM - a new data set for Wind Pool zones for Atlantic Coast states. In addition WindpoolHub also contains NOAA Designated Hurricane Prone Wind Regions and NOAA Designated Special Wind Areas for mountain-driven winds. WindpoolHub represents the most comprehensive set of Wind Zones available in the marketplace today.
Dr. Brady Foust, Chief Science Officer for HazardHub says, “Wind Pools are created by states to provide property insurance in areas that are prone to wind-driven damage. Knowing the areas covered by existing Wind Pool zones is critical to the insurance industry. We put our science team to work to find the best available sources of wind pool - and special wind zone - data. The result is WindpoolHubTM - a comprehensive set of pre-identified wind zones.”
WindpoolHub is available immediately via HazardHub’s API, as well as in GIS shapefile format.
Bob Frady, CEO of HazardHub adds, “We’re incredibly excited to add WindpoolHub to our collection of geographic natural hazard data sets. Wind Pool determinations are often critical factors in getting the right amount of insurance coverage for a home or business. By integrating WindpoolHub, both consumers and insurers can instantly determine whether a property is in a wind pool zone. WindpoolHub is yet another step in HazardHub’s goal of becoming the largest, most comprehensive collection of hazard risk data available. All under one simple API call.”
60% of properties are underinsured, costing insurers and consumers billions of dollars each and every year. HazardHub translates huge amounts of geospatial data into easy to understand risk scorecards that are used to make real world decisions. Our team of scientists provide comprehensive, and innovative, national coverage for perils that destroy and damage property.
