Location Risk Intelligence

Don’t take risks when it comes to risks

Location Risk Intelligence keeps you in full control of natural disaster and climate change risks worldwide and at all times, so you can concentrate fully on your core tasks.

Available in three different editions, as Natural Hazards Edition in order to generate assessments on the basis of data from past events, as Climate Change Edition for future-related assessments on the basis of climate change models, or as Wildfire HD Edition with higher resolution to better resolve the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) - the key zone for high-risk and high-value locations.

Reduce your risks to the minimum with the easy-to-use analysis tool for single locations or entire portfolios

Location Risk Intelligence accordingly supports companies in assessing risks from natural hazards or climate change around the world – from individual locations to entire portfolios – and accordingly helps to accelerate business processes and improve both portfolio and claims management.

By entering dedicated locations, users can access risk and hazard assessments in the form of risk scores for a variety of natural hazards and/or climate change risks, visualize them and save or download them as comprehensive reports.

Flexibility to the max

Cloud & API
Location Risk Intelligence is an SaaS solution, but alternatively you can access the scores of the solution via API and use its data entirely in your own applications.
Freedom due to modularity
Thanks to the modular structure, each of the three theme-specific editions can be supplemented at any time with the other assessment model and with additionally available modules as well. All in a single user interface.
Scalable to your needs
Assess single locations or entire portfolios with regard to both natural disasters and the consequences of climate change.

Choose the edition that suits you best

… is the ideal solution for companies which want to reliably evaluate the current status of their portfolios or individual locations. In addition to the comprehensive overall score, which is based on the three individually accessible detailed scores for earthquake, storm and flood, users receive dedicated ratings for a total of 12 natural hazards, including earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, tropical storms, hail, tornadoes, lightning, wildfires, river floods, storm surges, etc.

All analysed locations are visually displayed in the form of detailed maps with risk layers and can be saved as reports together with all individual scores.

The evaluation criteria can be extended modularly at any time by adding those of the Climate Change Edition, Wildfire HD Edition and other modules (see list below).

Also available On-Demand

In the On-Demand version, users without a contractual commitment can use credits that can be purchased directly on the website to determine risk assessments for individual locations and download them as meaningful reports. 

In contrast to the subscription version, the evaluation of portfolios as well as the graphical representation of individual risks  is not possible in this version.


… supports companies in analysing and assessing the risks of future climate change. From a single asset to multiple assets within a portfolio located in areas prone to the effects of future climate change, such as areas of extreme temperatures, extreme rainfall, drought stress, tropical cyclones, fire stress, sea-level rise, etc. 

In contrast to the Natural Hazards Edition, risk assessments are not calculated on the basis of past events, but on forecasts of future events that are expected to occur as a result of climate change.

In order to generate an all-encompassing assessment, the Climate Change Edition can also be supplemented at any time with the functions of the Natural Hazards Edition, Wildfire HD Edition and other modules (see list below).


... provides the analysis and assessment of the increasing risks of wildfires due to climate change in the USA and Canada. The maps in the Wildfire HD Edition offer, in contrast to those of Natural Hazards Edition or Climate Change Edition, a significantly higher resolution in order to generate even more detailed assessments. 

Alternatively, these maps can also be integrated as a Wildfire HD Module into the other two theme-specific editions.
