GIS Data – PLRB Map

  • This online mapping application provides member company researchers with a tool to search our historical database for severe event information by address.

  • Adjusters can enter an address or upload their policyholders and pinpoint the locations on a map, identifying the geospatial location in relationship to forecast and reported events.

  • Cat Managers can make strategic decisions days in advance, using forecast data.
