ALBANY NY – BuildingFootprintUSA, the premiere building-centric data creator, and HazardHub, the USA’s fastest-growing supplier of geospatial risk data, announce their partnership to deliver the most hyper-accurate, complete view of man-made and natural risk and hazards.  

Through BuildingFootprintUSA’s API, clients can access rooftop accuracy locations combined with the entire HazardHub catalog of peril data.  HazardHub’s data includes thirty three unique databases of information that quantify and qualify the hazard associated with any given location.  Users will be able to tap into over 1,500 COPE attributes from the BuildingFootprintUSA catalog, curated to the building level. 

“BuildingFootprintUSA provides property-level detail of structures, both stand-alone buildings and campus clusters. We provide location accuracy with insight on the content and character of the building.   Bringing that level of insight together with HazardHub, the leading innovator of hazard data – both natural and man-made – delivers a unique offering for our insurance customers,” said Karl Urich, President of BuildingFootprintUSA.

John Siegman, Founder & CCA of HazardHub, said, “It’s exciting to bring the two parties together. The best hazard datasets and easy to understand risk scores, applied to real building shapes and not just a dot on a map, give a quick and comprehensive snapshot of any property in the US.”
