UK: Data services provider Emapsite has unveiled a geocoded perils model enabling insurers and underwriters to assess the subsidence risk for every property in the UK. Subsitree, available as an individual data set and through an on-tap location content platform, gives a detailed perspective into the distribution of risk based on the latest soil type and tree data. The new model has been created through close working with insurance sector clients.
Subsitree includes updated National Tree Map data, showing the trunks, crowns and canopies of trees. Also involved is soil type data, including on clays and sand, from the leading providers of geology data.
