Previsico’s technology is underpinned by over two decades of published research in partnership with the Cabinet Office and emergency services. Previsico’s state-of-the-art forecasting uses live hydrodynamic modelling, drawing on several leading data sources. These include best available weather nowcasts and forecasts, satellite imagery, ground sensors, LiDAR elevation data, land cover, drainage and geology. Previsico’s world leading solution is used by insurers (including Liberty Specialty Markets and Zurich), businesses (including BT) and government to reduce their losses. The webinar will look at how live modelling using real time weather nowcasts and forecasts alongside IOT are capturing traditionally hard to predict flood events.
