Following the U.S. domestication effective date, Maxar...
Updated Analysis from CoreLogic Shows 23,044 Homes at High or Extreme Risk Inside Wildfire Perimeters
—Reconstruction Cost Value totals more than $8 billion—
IRVINE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 16, 2018 — CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, today released updated data analysis showing 23,044 homes with a total reconstruction cost value (RCV) of approximately $8.6 billion are at high or extreme risk of wildfire damage within the perimeters of the Camp Fire in Northern California and the Woolsey Fire in Southern California.

CoreLogic: Updated Camp Fire Analysis, November 2018 (Graphic: Business Wire)
Due to the increased containment of these two wildfires, CoreLogic has revised the area of analysis from ZIP code regions to the actual wildfire perimeters. This provides a more precise evaluation of the risk associated with these wildfires. The tables below break down the risk and corresponding RCV for structures affected by each wildfire and its associated perimeter. RCVs represent the cost to completely rebuild a property in the worst-case scenario of total destruction of the structure, including labor and materials by geographic location. While other hazards may cause partial destruction...
Public Can Access NICB's Geospatial Intelligence Center Images of California Wildfires Damage
The Geospatial Intelligence Center (GIC), created by the NICB and Vexcel Imaging began collecting high resolution images shortly after the Woolsey fire raged through the Thousand Oaks area. Aircraft were also staged over the Malibu area and the Paradise community where the Camp Fire resulted in multiple deaths and extensive property damage. Flights over the Camp Fire are ongoing as heavy smoke has limited visibility.
The GIC images are processed within 24-36 hours of the aircraft landing and the images have been made available to insurance companies that are GIC members as well as first responders and emergency personnel in California as they became available.
Images of damaged areas that have been flown over are available to the public here. By typing in an address, anyone can see "before" and "after" views of that location using a slider on the screen.
"This is helpful to property owners who may not be able to...
An acronym for Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing system (TIGER) data, the annual release of GIS data contains public domain data covering administrative and physical features such as roads, boundaries, and hydrological features.

Colorado Water and Sanitation District Implemented Data Reviewer—and Will Save a Year of Time
The two-person GIS team at South Adams County Water and Sanitation District (SACWSD), based in Commerce City, Colorado, handles huge datasets for drinking water, irrigation, and sewage systems. Serving nearly 50,000 customers over about 65 square miles, SACWSD is the largest combined water and sanitation district in Colorado. It gets its water from wells, a reservoir, and the Denver Water utility. For a separate irrigation system, SACWSD draws water from nonpotable well supplies. In an effort to conserve drinking water, it is also building one of the largest nonpotable irrigation systems in the United States.
To keep all the water running, SACWSD has to have good, accurate data. But in fall 2016, as the district was using GPS to collect data on its infrastructure systems, GIS supervisor Cliff Sullivan and GIS technician Mark Dickman noticed that the data quality was varying widely. They were tasked with cleaning it up, and it initially appeared as though this assignment was going to be a long and tedious one.
Sullivan and Dickman started by manually reviewing each piece of data for spatial accuracy and attribute correctness. But this type of quality control (QC) was limited, since it was exploratory rather than comprehensive.
Multi-objective optimisation reaching new heights with latest scheduling software release
The leaders in intelligent mine scheduling optimisation have pushed the benchmark even higher with the recent release of Maptek Evolution 5.1.
Close collaboration with mining experts to provide targeted applications has defined the development journey of Evolution. The computational power of the software is unparalleled in the scheduling arena and is underpinned by a drive to provide innovative solutions to current and prospective scheduling problems.
The latest release features updates to Evolution Strategy and Origin modules to enhance medium, long term and strategic life of mine scheduling, reducing operating costs and maximising deposit value.
The ground-breaking multi-objective optimisation algorithm introduced into Evolution Origin for scheduling with blocks has been expanded to handle scheduling with solids. Users can now optimise with solids on NPV and blending, comparing multiple conflicting objectives to define a range of practical solutions for consideration.
‘Before, we had Origin solids as a single object optimisation but now we’ve added multi-objective optimisation. So, what was possible with blocks is now possible with solids. This allows our users to create life of mine to medium term schedules based on a pre-defined cutoff grade. Our holistic approach includes haulage and waste dump for optimisation, plus blending and NPV,’ said Evolution Product Manager, Eduardo...
For the third quarter of 2018, Intermap reported revenue of $3.7 million as it continued work on the previously announced $6.2 million U.S. Government task order for the creation of digital elevation and bare earth terrain models. The Company has also been awarded a U.S Government task order to help them assess the suitability of multiple current and near-future satellite technologies for creating high resolution elevation products.
All amounts in this news release are in United States dollars, unless otherwise noted.
For the third quarter of 2018, Intermap reported revenue of $3.7 million and operating loss of $474 thousand, compared to revenue of $6.3 million and operating income of $1.8 million for the third quarter of 2017. Acquisition services revenue during the third quarter of 2018 decreased $2.6 million from the same period in 2017 due to delays in contracting follow-on work following elections in southeast Asia.
