WEBSITES

Below is a list of websites that we have used over the years to help track and monitor different event from Wildfires to Hurricanes.

We also found the Post-Event Imagery websites particularly useful when  working with Claims in calculating estimated losses.  If you have a large risk that is driving the numbers you can investigate using this post imagery. If the risk was damaged/undamaged you can alter your estimate accordingly.

Post Event Imagery

 

​Emergency Response Imagery

Post event satellite and drone imagery in the United States. Provided by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division. 

 

This is a great tool to tweak your modelled losses to improve your loss estimate accuracy. Also a great tool for your claims department.

Wildfire

​California Wildfires

 

​Track and monitor the latest California Wildfires. Locations are approximate, but can assist in identifying possible risks that are exposed while waiting for your vendor to release a footprint.

NASA EARTH DATA

 

Download active fire products from NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)(MCD14DL) and NASA's Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) for the last 24, 48 hours and 7 days in shapefile, KML, WMS or text file formats. VIIRS data complement MODIS fire detections but the improved spatial resolution of the 375 m data provides a greater response over fires of relatively small areas.
