Product Description: Climate Change Edition

Web Version (log-on) and API

1. General

1.1 The Climate Change Edition of the Munich Re Location Risk Intelligence is a software as a service (SaaS) solution and, as such, delivers climate change-related results (scores and analyses) for specific requested locations.

1.2 The Climate Change Edition’s results are estimates based on Munich Reinsurance Company’s own or licensed data. The estimates can be used by the Client as a decision-making aid. MR Service cannot therefore pledge or guarantee, either explicitly or implicitly, the completeness or accuracy of information that it has properly compiled.

1.3 The Client retains all potential intellectual property rights to the data it has uploaded to the online services for request purposes.

1.4 Based on the Edition’s results, two types of scores are available

Hazard Scores Munich Re’s hazard scores for the twelve major perils (Earthquake, Volcano, Tsunami, Tropical Cyclone, Extratropical Storm, Hail, Tornado, Lightning, Wildfire, River Flood, Flash Flood and Storm Surge).
Risk Scores Munich Re’s risk scores for Overall, Earthquake, Storm and Flood are provided on a single location and portfolio basis and corresponding reports are available.

2. Web Version (log-on) of the Climate Change Edition

2.1 General functionalities of Web Version

Base maps Grey Background, Dark Grey Background, OpenStreetMap, Topography, Terrain, Streets, Hybrid Satellite
Portfolio Risk Analysis Manage up to six data collections (e.g.: portfolios) simultaneously and intersect/filter according to NATHAN hazard maps.
Geocoding Integrated geoc oder for location visualisation based on address search within the application. Geocoding results (latitude, longitude) cannot be extracted.
Upload/download Upload of data as Excel or CSV template files and download as Excel, CSV or PDF.
Visualisation of locations Cluster View, Heatmap View, Regions View (e.g.: country, county, city, postcode, CRESTA), Single Locations View.
Quickinfo Quick overview of selected KPIs (Count, Total Sum, Average).
Guidance Provides you with an overview of the activated content and quick access to steering options (e.g.: opacity steering and filter).
Polygons Freehand and circle polygons as well as upload of a polygon as KML files with filter functionality. Polygons can be saved and assigned to groups.
Location & Risk Information Depending on data, additional information on each location can be shown in an info popup. Additional content (.png, .jpeg, .pdf) can be attached to each location (e.g.: Risk Survey or Claims Reports).
General Maps Information Elevation, Population Density, Distance to Coast, Flood Defence SoP.

2.2 Specific Functionalities of Web Version

Climate Change Standard Information Scores and maps for combinations of hazards/indexes (Tropical Cyclone, River Flood, Sea Level Rise Index, Fire Weather Stress, Drought Stress Index, Heat Stress Index, Precipitation Stress Index), scenarios and years (Current; RCP 2.6/4.5/8.5, 2030/2050/2100). (Not all scenarios and years are available for each hazard; see Table 1 for availability of scenarios/timelines for each hazard). Additionally included are Natural Hazard Standard Information: Munich Re’s hazard scores and maps for the twelve major perils (Earthquake, Volcano, Tsunami, Tropical Cyclone, Extratropical Storm, Hail, Tornado, Lightning, Wildfire, River Flood, Flash Flood and Storm Surge).
Risk Scores Munich Re’s risk scores for Overall, Earthquake, Storm and Flood are provided on a single location and portfolio basis and corresponding reports are available.
General Maps Information & CRESTA Low Res and High Res, Soil and Shaking Ha zard, Global Active Faults including additional Geo Basis Data.
Footprints Munich Re footprints are available and can be shown for a number of selected major natural catastrophe events.
