Geospatial Mapping: Visual Risk Assessment & Geospatial Analysis

Interactive geospatial mapping enables risk professionals to do visual risk analysis assessments.

Interactive maps enable risk and security professionals to zoom in to examine risk factors globally at 500m x 500m resolution. Our Foresight risk solutions, dashboards, and mapping tools deliver more nuanced, accurate, actionable risk intelligence by creating a 360-degree view that spans geographic, political, sovereign, economic, commodity and industry risk analysts.

We integrate location threat models and human-source networks to assess security threats at not just a country level, but also at the sector, city or specific location or asset level to provide a more complete view of the threat profile.

Get more granular insights to support your decisions

  • Explore security risks at a location-level with enhanced incident data and trend analysis
  • Understand violent crime risk alongside our war, terrorism, and civil unrest location risk with scores at a 500m x 500m resolution
  • Plot areas and routes on land to see the violent risk exposure along the route that inform transport and logistical decisions

Violent crime location risks

Do you and your extended supply chain operate in, or have plans to enter, countries where violence from criminal organizations is a pertinent risk?

Our geospatial location risk layer for violent crime provides a forward-looking view of crime risk globally down to a 500 m x 500 m resolution using the same scale as our location risk scores for terrorism, war, and civil unrest. The scores combine forward-looking analyst insight into in-country criminal violence dynamics with best-in-class crime data and geospatial modelling to differentiate these risks within territories. Visually interrogate the model using the map layers or extract and compare quantified risk scores for key locations of interest.

Custom geography risk

Do you already assess country- or regional-level security risks but would like much more nuanced inputs for your assessments on your operational footprint for a cluster of facilities or the area around a particular facility?

Draw custom geography polygons on the risk map and generate an average location risk score for each defined area. Once drawn you can also capture intelligence events for the areas, set up alerts for score changes and new intelligence events, and generate charts showing the area risk score for each of the four risk categories (war, terrorism, civil unrest, and violent crime) and the overall aggregate.

Route risk analysis

Do you conduct periodic security reviews of commonly used routes for your supply chain and personnel, to ensure adequate provisions are in place? Have your common routes experienced threats or actual attacks, leading you to consider alternatives?

Plot routes on an interactive risk map and produce graphs showing differing security risk levels along their length including, war, terrorism, civil unrest, crime and political violence aggregates. You can also capture intelligence events within a buffer zone either side of your saved routes and set up alerts for score changes and new intelligence events.

Granular security risk analysis

Are you a small team with limited capacity to gather your own raw security data or interact with complicated third-party interfaces? Do you need quantitative analytics on key security issues to complement your team’s own qualitative analysis disseminated to personnel in the field?

Our dashboards provide data visualization and analytics within a simple interactive interface, drawing on enhanced security incident data. Leverage structured metadata to quickly understand the nature of civil unrest, crime, war, and terrorism risks at specific locations and how it has changed over time. Filter to the sector impacted to understand how security risks are affecting your industry. For attack incidents, conduct deeper analytics on attack modus operandi, perpetrators, and the assets and people targeted.

Customized exposure dashboard

Need to assess security risks at numerous facilities, critical suppliers, commonly used hotels, airports, event venues, etc., perhaps as part of an annual audit to check that security provisions, insurance purchasing, etc. are adequate

Compare and contrast risks by location or compare a specific location score to the relevant country score utilizing our custom exposure dashboards. Set customized scores for your assets and locations of interest and view the intelligence event trends that ring your locations to analyze your complete risk profile
