Transcript

  • 1. GIS & Insurance Practical Applications of PLRB Map within the Insurance Claims Process Peter Balingit Meteorologist, GISP Director – PLRB Catastrophe Services
  • 2. 3 What is GIS? • Data is linked to a map layer • Layers linked together by geography • Visual presentation of database information Source: National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USA
  • 3. GIS that you already know  Google Earth  Microsoft MapPoint  Google Maps  Yahoo Maps  Road Atlases  National Park Maps
  • 4. Tornado Damage Path 63 Policies If you don't know where your policies are located, you cannot accurately assess your exposure! ZIP Code 35405 327 Total Policies Tornado Damage
  • 5. GIS Data – PLRB  Since late 1998 Catastrophe Services has provided GIS data to Member companies.  ESRI’s ArcGIS and Mapinfo Professional are the two most popular off the shelf GIS applications. PLRB provides data in both formats.  Perils are geocoded using latitude/longitude and can be imported into GIS software.
  • 6.  This online mapping application provides member company researchers with a tool to search our historical database for severe event information by address.  Adjusters can enter an address or upload their policyholders and pinpoint the locations on a map, identifying the geospatial location in relationship to forecast and reported events.  Cat Managers can make strategic decisions days in advance, using forecast data. GIS Data – PLRB Map
  • 7.  Examples of GIS data available: • Tropical storm / hurricane wind field forecasts • Severe weather forecast outlooks and active weather watches / warnings • Daily severe weather reports • GeoMAC fire perimeters • Earthquakes and shaking intensity • Lightning probability • NEXRAD hail size and wind speed estimates • Special events (riots, fires, hazmat incidents) • Post event imagery GIS Data – PLRB Map
  • 8. GIS in Action: Tracking Storms in Real-Time Severe Weather Outbreak June 3, 2013
  • 9. Severe Weather Forecast - 6/3/14
  • 10. Severe Weather Forecast with Policies - 6/3/14
  • 11. Current Radar - 6/3/14
  • 12. Current Radar with Policies - 6/3/14
  • 13. Active Weather Watches / Warnings 6/3/14
  • 14. Active Weather Watches / Warnings 6/3/14
  • 15. Near Real-time Peril Reports - 6/3/14
  • 16. Helpful Mobile Apps for Real-Time Storm Tracking:
  • 17. GIS in Action: Claim Verificaiton using PLRB Map
  • 18.  Lightning Probability Maps are developed by the NWS, Meteorological Development Lab.  Forecasts the probability of one or more cloud to ground lightning strikes during the two hour forecast period.  Claims departments can quickly see if a high probability of lightning existed in the area of the claimant. Historical Database – Lightning Probability
  • 19. Historical Database – Lightning Probability
  • 20. PLRB Map – Lightning Probability
  • 21. NWS Damage Assessments
  • 22. Wildfire Perimeters / Evacuation Information
  • 23. River Stream Gauge Data
  • 24. River Stream Gauge Data
  • 25. River Stream Gauge Data
  • 26. River Stream Gauge Data
  • 27. Snowfall Forecast – 72 hours
  • 28. Precipitation Forecast – Six hours
  • 29. Weather Observations
  • 30. Event Based Satellite Imagery
  • 31. Event Based Satellite Imagery
  • 32. Event Based Satellite Imagery
  • 33. Event Based Satellite Imagery
  • 34. Earthquake: Magnitude and Shakemap Intensity
  • 35. Earthquake: Magnitude and Shakemap Intensity
  • 36. Wind Peril and Estimate Data
  • 37. Wind Peril and Estimate Data
  • 38. Buoy Data
  • 39. Integrating PLRB Catastrophe Data into your Workflows
  • 40. Infrastructure  PLRB Map – uses Esri ArcServer platform • Supports OGC web mapping specifications  Secured communication over “Https” • ID and Password needed to access services  Communicate directly with the GIS server to consume data for use outside the PLRB Map  Requires you to build a separate application
  • 41. Application Options  Esri supports a number of web development languages to code your own maps • JavaScript, Flex, Silverlight, etc • “Viewer” Applications for Flex and Silverlight are available to speed up the development process  ArcExplorer – Free desktop or web application  KML/Google Maps  Other “Open Source” GIS options available  Map display or tabular data output?
  • 42. Hail Storm, Jackson, MS – 3/18/13 GIS in Action: Analyzing Post Disaster Imagery
  • 43. Hurricane Sandy, NJ – 10/30/12 GIS in Action: Analyzing Post Disaster Imagery
  • 44. Querying the Data  PLRB Datasets: • Perils • Hail Probability • Lightning Probability • Wind Gust Estimates • Observations • Earthquake Shaking Intensity (Shakemap)  Send date of loss and peril and import matching records
  • 45. Benefits of Integrating  Enable analyses while keeping your sensitive claims and policy data behind your firewall  Streamline workflow by automating searches  Users only need to use one system  Run your own proprietary analyses using desktop mapping applications
  • 46. PLRB Map Mobile: GPS address or search by address
  • 47. PLRB Map Mobile: Peril History results
  • 48. PLRB Map Mobile: Peril details
  • 49. PLRB Map Mobile: Pre-event satellite View
  • 50. PLRB Map Mobile: Send e-mail link
  • 51. PLRB Map Mobile: Open emailed link on desktop, in PLRB Map
