Risk Data Suite™ Mass Movement Bundle
Natural Disaster Risk Data SolutionsThe Mass Movement Bundle is part of our Risk Data Suite, our natural disaster risk data solutions range of software products for the insurance sector. Like our other natural disaster risk data solutions, our Mass Movement Bundle combines geospatial data and historical information to help you to assess risk to properties. The natural disaster risk data solutions in our Risk Data Suite are also compatible with our risk assessment map databases.
How our Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle worksMass movement or mass wasting represents movements of masses of bodies of soil, bed rock, rock debris, soil, or mud which usually occur along steep-sided hills and mountains. The slipping of large amounts of rock and soil is seen in landslides, mud slides, and avalanches.
Our Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle combines a number of datasets to provide information about:
- Volcanic hazard zones
- Known sinkholes
- Abandoned coal mines
- Karst & Pseudokarst layers
- Areas prone to landslides
Using our Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle within your businessOur Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle can help you to make well-informed decisions about rates and underwriting by enabling you to:
- Determine property locations relative to known sinkholes
- Assess potential landslide exposure
- Identify whether a property is within a volcanic hazard zone
- Determine the locations of abandoned coal mines
- Identify areas with Karst and Pseudokarst layers.
Our natural disaster risk data solutions' Mass Movement Bundle features a range of datasets which can help you to make faster and better informed rate-setting and underwriting decisions.
Lava Flow DataMaps showing volcanic hazard zones on the island of Hawaii were first prepared in 1974 by the U.S. Geological Survey and were revised in 1987.
The Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle from Pitney Bowes Software utilizes this data to enable you to identify whether or not a property is within one of these volcanic hazard zones.
Sinkholes DataSinkholes are a common feature of Florida’s landscape. They are only one of the many kinds of karst landforms, which include caves, disappearing streams, springs, and underground drainage systems, all of which occur in Florida.
Our Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle helps you to identify how close a property is to known sinkholes.
Abandoned Coal Mines DataThe Abandoned Coal Mine data represents the approximate location of problem areas containing public health, safety, and public welfare problems created by past coal mining. It is a subset of data contained in the Office of Surface Mining (OSM) Abandoned Mine Land Inventory.
This component of the Pitney Bowes Software Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle enables you to assess the proximity of a property to these problem areas.
Karst and Pseudokarst Layers DataKarst and Pseudokarst layers represent areas containing distinctive surficial and subterranean features developed by solution of carbonate and other rocks and characterized by closed depressions, sinking streams, and cavern openings.
Our natural disaster risk data solutions Mass Movement Bundle helps you identify whether or not a property is in an affected area.
Landslides DataLandslides are defined, in a broad manner, to include most types of gravitational mass movement such as rock falls, debris flows and the failure of engineered soil materials. Landslide causes include earthquakes, reservoir drawdowns, and heavy rain.
Our Risk Data Suite Mass Movement Bundle contains data on areas in the United States where large numbers of landslides have occurred, areas which are susceptible to landslides, and costly events. Costly events are defined as events where there was public or private property damage or loss of human life.
