ImageCat announces the Global Economic Disruption Index (GEDI)

22 Aug 2022

ImageCat is pleased to announce its new framework Global Economic Disruption Index (GEDI) for assessing the economic impacts of climate change and disasters. GEDI is a NASA, GEO, and GOOGLE-funded modeling framework that characterizes the broad economic impact of disasters, including economic restoration and critical infrastructure recovery time. GEDI offers a path to bypass the complexity of traditional modeling technologies and provides a simple index for widespread use. GEDI provides a unique way to characterize the disruption that follows disasters, with far-reaching applications- from environmental justice to parametric-triggered insurance products. GEDI will be available to end users in the government and the nonprofit sector through ImageCat’s advisory services and risk platforms Inhance® and FACFinder™.

To learn more about how GEDI can help your organization, please join the upcoming Technical Webinar presented by Resurance, a data and platform initiative of ImageCat, being held on Thursday, August 25, 7:00 AM PDT/ 10:00 AM EDT: Zoom registration link.
