My talk is about freeze and its impact on UK companies. Freeze is an increasing problem costing Insurers over £1bn per yr from escape of water claims. The methodology for freeze mapping is developed using various environmental parameters. Using high resolution datasets means that ArcGIS is one of the few tools that can handle the data complexity at a national scale. The approach uses a built environment model, together with freeze mapping, to produce an annual damage ratio at a property level.
