ICEYE launches geospatial analysis platform to provide insurers with instant flood impact analysis

29 June 2022 — Daniela GHETU
ICEYE, a world-leading provider of SAR data and natural catastrophe analysis solutions, announced the launch of ICEYE Insights, a powerful geospatial platform which allows insurance companies to combine ICEYE's unique flood observation data and analysis with their property insurance information to understand the impact of a flood event and take action.

Utilising the EigenPrism? catastrophe risk management tool, the ICEYE Insights platform is automatically updated with data and analysis from ICEYE's Flood Insights product in near real-time following a flood event. The data includes high-resolution reporting of flood extent and measurement of depth required to assess the impact on individual buildings. Insurers can seamlessly upload details of their property portfolio via an API, and instantly visualise and analyse a flood event's impact on their personal and commercial insurance customers.

The capabilities provided by ICEYE Insights enable insurers to achieve rapid, proactive communication with customers, optimise the allocation of field resources, enhance triage of claims, identify opportunities to make provisional payments or early total loss settlement, estimate the cost damage to individual properties and their portfolio overall, and optimise their reserves.

"ICEYE Insights provides a new way of interacting with the unique and powerful flood hazard data delivered by ICEYE," said Stephen Lathrope, Global Head of Insurance at ICEYE. "Insurers and MGAs can choose either to receive our flood data directly into their existing geospatial analysis tools or if they prefer, they now have the option of subscribing to access this information via the ICEYE Insights platform. There is no more convenient, cost effective, powerful means by which insurers can take immediate action in response to flooding, or to analyse the impact of flooding retrospectively in order to enhance their underwriting."


ICEYE delivers unmatched persistent monitoring capabilities for any location on earth. Owning the world's largest synthetic-aperture radar constellation, the company enables objective, data-driven decisions for its customers in sectors such as insurance, natural catastrophe response and recovery, security, maritime monitoring and finance. ICEYE's data can be collected day or night, and even through cloud cover.
