Better Property Reviews Demand Better Data
Simplify your understanding of a building’s footprint using data calculated off of the GIC’s high-resolution aerial imagery. It’s a better way for property and casualty insurers to see in seconds what a building is shaped like, its dimensions, and how much space it takes up relative to its surroundings.
Consistency & Accuracy Across Products
Building Footprints data is derived from the GIC’s high-resolution aerial imagery and Digital Surface Model (DSM) data. The accuracy across product types from the GIC means this information is the same across multiple types of imagery, giving you confidence in the precision of building footprint calculation.
Compare and Contrast Footprint Changes
Multiple use cases abound with Building Footprints, especially when it comes to reviewing and evaluating properties for changes and additions. Access historical imagery and data with the GIC’s library to compare and contrast footprint changes to write a better policy or resolve a claim.
