How crucial is a topographic map with elevation information when assessing a property’s natural hazard risk? Very. Accurate digital elevation models are essential to the science behind natural hazards and a crucial element in any company’s enterprise data infrastructure. The effective use of elevation information can reveal physical conditions on the ground that may increase or decrease a property’s risk of natural hazards. The national Elevation, Slope and Aspect Layer from CoreLogic can help you visualize and more accurately evaluate the topography and terrain of most of the United States. It provides 10-meter grid granularity*, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to understanding the underlying risks associated with parcels.
*10-meter grid granularity applies to 84% of the country with the balance ranging between 30-60 meters
Parcel-Level Topographic Maps
Property developers, utility companies, oil and gas land-men as well as a many other businesses rely on dependable location-based data to make key decisions that effect their goals and objectives. From exploration to development, success hangs in the balance of intelligent data. For instance, if you are evaluating a property in an area with known soil issues and the elevation information reveals a hill with a slope facing the same direction (aspect) as the bedrock beneath it, you may have unearthed a red flag – the potential for landslide.
An accurate topographic map layer that is regularly updated and includes elevation information can be essential in helping a variety of industries manage natural hazard risk at the property level.
Our Elevation, Slope and Aspect Layer is updated each year to stay current.
