CoreLogic Expands Location-Based Intelligence to Include Building Footprint Data

CoreLogic, a global property information, analytics and data-enabled services provider, announced the expansion of its location-based intelligence data with the addition of structure footprint information to its other parcel and property characteristics data offerings. CoreLogic Structure Footprint enables accurate roof-top geocoding and identifies the location and outline of relevant structures on a parcel, including all known sub-addresses, to provide a more granular and precise property description.

CoreLogic residential and commercial structure footprint data covers more than 35 million rural and urban parcels throughout the U.S, including two-thirds of the largest 50 metro areas. When combined with other CoreLogic proprietary property data, including business financial health, natural hazard risks, occupancy information and building characteristics, the added structure footprint data provides a more complete picture of a property than was previously available.

Accurate location data is a critically important factor for planning and operations in oil and gas, insurance, geo-commerce, and other industries that need to understand what type of structures and building characteristics are associated with property addresses. The addition of structure footprint data complements the existing CoreLogic property characteristic data which details attributes in 150 distinct categories that provide location intelligence on everything from zoning and land use to details about roof type and number of bedrooms.
