New cartographic basis for risk assessment in Latin America

Source(s):  Directions Magazine, Directions Media

Recently released high-quality, up-to-date vector-based maps of Central and South America give insurance and reinsurance companies a precise, reliable cartographic basis that can associate actual and modelled risks with the objects to be insured, says Directions Magazine. These digital maps include precise coastlines and comprehensively updated administrative boundaries for Mexico, essential for assessing the risk of damage from hurricanes and floods; and updated and expanded coverage of Belize, Bermuda, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, as well as all Caribbean islands and states.
