Beyond Floods | Know Your Flood Risk - Protect Your Property
At Syndeste, we are dedicated to helping people better understand and manage risks to their property due to natural hazards. Beyond Floods does this for flood risks and targets prospective and current property owners for their insurance, flood risk management, and real estate needs.
The initial release of this product includes the following in an interactive map for the NYC and Miami-Dade area:
- Flood Outlook Score: This is an abstraction of more than 25 factors that affect, and are the result of, real estate, social perception, flood insurance, flood mitigation and losses, infrastructure, and geomorphology. This score considers past, present, and future scenarios, including impact due to sea level rise at a property structure level. The higher the score, the more resilient the property is to the effects of flood hazards.
- An estimate of the flood insurance premium for each property, to get an idea of the economic impact of insurance on property ownership costs, and,
- A detailed report, which provides information to help people understand the flood factors assessed to determine the Flood Outlook Score.
