Zip+4 boundaries for the insurance industry

Location DataAND has created Zip+4 boundaries for the insurance industry to perform hyper-local, anonymized actuarial analysis.  Value of Zip+4 for the insurance industry

– Perform hyper-local, anonymized actuarial analysis
– Map origination and destination and time-on-site trends for UBI
– Anonymize personally identifiable data, yet retain hyper-local mapping attributes
– Use ZIP+4 to segment mapping data by housing type

 

Why Zip+4 boundaries and not points?
– A boundary is a fixed area.  Therefore, you can check if the location coordinate fits in this area.  Answer is Yes or No.
– With a point (centroid) you must search for the closest match.  Often you must pick from a few options, and you are not always sure if you pick the correct one.  This also has a higher ‘processor’ cost.

Mapping and Navigation data for the insurance industry

Location Data and Digital MapsTrack, trace, location, map viewing and recovery all require knowledge of location.  AND Mapping data can translate location into an address and route to service or recover the item.

AND provides geocoding and reverse geocoding APIs for use in track, trace and recovery systems. We also have a World-class turn-by-turn navigation map of the US and Canada (and Western Europe) that can be used to visualize, plan and deploy services or recovery to the site.
