Brief description of the data offering

XDI, powered by The Climate Risk Engines, uses a wide range of engineering, hazard, context, weather, climate and financial data to provide detailed physical risk insights. Asset engineering features vulnerable to damage or failure from hazards are based on 140 standard residential, commercial and industrial archetypes which can be amended to test adaptation responses. Hazard probabilities are calculated using historical weather data (1990 baseline) and local environmental context such as topography, flood mapping, soil composition and others, and the change in hazard severity and frequency as a result of climate model simulations (CMIP5 and CMIP6).

Where and how do you source your data?

XDI uses historical weather data for each hazard at a given location as a baseline. Hazard is data obtained directly or constructed through contextual  data such as forest cover, elevation, flood maps, urban density and soil composition.

What is the cost for your data offering?

 Pricing is subject to scale and granularity of results required.
