23 August 2016 – Geocoding location accuracy is fundamental to the exploration of location-centric business intelligence and important for applications such as asset management and risk analysis. Currently very few assessment tools on this exist. Without the confidence on the location accuracy, subsequent analytics and results would be seriously compromised.
BigData Earth is pleased to release a new product calledGeocoding DoubleCheck, a unique tool for assessing the location accuracy of the widely used parcel-level geocoding. The current coverage is for 48 contiguous U.S. States.
The product website provides details of some important issues, including:
- The difference between parcel-level geocoding and building-level geocoding;
- Why the use of high-resolution imagery and land cover classification is important for this type of application; and
- Implication for studies such as catastrophe loss modelling and site-level risk mapping.
