P&C Insurance

When natural disasters strike, insurance companies are overwhelmed with claims. However, evaluating damage is tricky when neighborhood signs with street names and home addresses are wiped out. Reverse Geocoding can work with CAT management systems to identify addresses without physical indicators.

Urban Planning and Government

Local governments are on the frontlines for natural disaster response. It may seem like you know every street address, but when a disaster strikes, it can completely obliterate street signage, landmarks, and other location-mapping devices. Using Smarty's US Reverse Geocoding, you can enter a latitude and longitude to identify the closest address and respond quickly to impacted areas effectively.
