Identify 26% more properties at risk of flooding

Imagine having access to property information right down to individual flat level. Think how much easier it would be for you to manage flood risk and underwrite accurate policies.

Ordnance Survey data enables you to see insurance claim hotspots so that you can identify fraudulent applications quickly. Our geospatial data goes beyond postcode analysis. It gives you detailed information about individual properties.

"Some five million properties across the country, or around one in six, are at risk of flooding from coastal, river and surface water. And climate change is increasing the risks of extreme weather and floods, a report by the Public Accounts Committee said.” - Guardian 2015.
