ImpactResponse Events Defined

Nearmap uses a range of criteria to determine which events are captured under the Post-Catastrophe program. Events are assessed based on inputs such as the scale of impact to communities, infrastructure, and property, and the geographical areas affected by the event. Due to the variability of these types of events, Nearmap assesses each on its own merits based on the criteria below. For example, a significant hurricane that is officially declared a lower category than stated may still meet other Nearmap criteria for capture.

Refer to the Post-Catastrophe ImpactResponse Program - North America  for further details on the events and criteria used to assess the survey program in North America.

Refer to the Post-Catastrophe ImpactResponse Program - Australia for further details on the events and criteria used to assess the survey program in Australia.
