Streamline the Management of Vegetation and Natural Disaster Risk
- Trees threaten critical infrastructure by posing a risk of falling on assets, blocking transport corridors or spreading dangerous wildfires.
- At the same time, climate change is increasing the risk of natural disasters, including wildfires and flooding.
- Currently many asset managers or authorities undertake risk mapping by collecting field surveys every three to five years, which is costly and slow.
- Accurate, widespread and up-to-date data is required to pinpoint risks down to individual tree level or street level so that corrective actions can be prioritised.
Track the risk trees pose alongside railway tracks or power lines according to their proximity, height and health.
Prioritise vegetation clearing prior to the wildfire season according to vegetation flammability, proximity and structure
Improve flood risk monitoring and understand the catchment factors that increase risk.
Provide analysis at scale for large financial and actuarial models.
