RiskMeter Adds Flood Elevation Report to Service

July 12, 2006

CDS Business Mapping LLC. has added a new Flood Elevation report to its RiskMeter Online (www.RiskMeter.com) service to better understand flood risk for policies that fall outside a flood zone.

“After the events of the 2005 hurricane season, many insurers learned that floods don’t stop at the edge of a flood zone,” explains Dan Munson, VP of Sales & Marketing, CDS Business Mapping. “In order to give our users a better idea of their flood exposure going into the 2006 hurricane season, we made it a priority to add another tool to our RiskMeter Online service.”

By typing in an address, users will now be able to get the following flood data: FEMA Flood Zone, Distance to Flood Zone, Estimated Base Flood Elevation, Elevation at a Location, Estimated Height Above a Flood Zone, Estimated Water Depth in a Flood Zone, and Aerial Photo (Optional).

“This report will not only benefit excess flood insurers by giving them another tool to evaluate risk, but it will also help insurance agents to sell flood insurance to people who live outside a flood zone,” explains Munson.

For more information on this report, please contact Daniel Munson at 617-737-4444 or dmunson@cdsys.com
