Changing the Wildfire Analytics Game
The North America Wildfire Model quantifies the location and severity of wildfire risk beyond simple techniques for better understanding of impacts.
Granular Parameter Data
RMS wildfire models provide ultra-realistic fire footprints that address surface fuel, topographic data, weather conditions moisture, and fire suppression. Explicit ember and smoke wildfire modeling simulations capture impact beyond the perimeter.
Wildfire analytics help quantify the relative contribution of burn and smoke for more relevant coverages, portfolio management decisions, and new product opportunities.
Wildfire risk modeling delivers the complete perspective of ember contribution, spatial coverage, and distribution of the hazard, particularly in house-to-house urban conflagrations.
Wildfire modeling includes the 48 contiguous states of the U.S., with over 50,000 simulated years in an effort to ensure data, calibration, and scope address market gaps.
