Location intelligence, such as knowing where assets are located and their proximity to hazards, is vital when developing risk profiles. GIS provides tools that allow users to combine location based data, such as vegetation density, road access, and traffic flow patterns, to make more informed decisions. Whether you are identifying a driver’s route to work or locating a building, GIS offers a more complete and accurate picture of risk. This information helps insurers meet the needs of their customers.
