Municipal Risk Assessment Tool (MRAT)

MRAT helps communities understand future climate change and infrastructure risks, so they can prioritize investments and reduce the damage from sewer backup and basement flooding caused by extreme weather events.

Data analytics made easy... where best to invest?


 

DATA - THE FOUNDATION

Making data work is at the core of what we do. 

MRAT provides an easy to use, web-based data uploader that standardizes and validates very large geospatial, infrastructure and climate datasets and indices.  Once the data has been collected, validated and integrated into a database, it is ready for the next step - analytics and discovery.

 
 
 

ADVANCED ANALYTICS AND MAP VIEWER

MRAT is able to rapidly integrate and analyze the relative significance of large datasets and indices. 

MRAT accounts for hazards, exposures, vulnerability and risks. A unique statistical risk model formula for each municipal area is then connected with MRAT’s GIS map viewer tool. The resulting maps are extremely detailed, and allow for the discovery of current and future areas of risk across an entire municipality.

 
 
 

SCALABLE, ROBUST AND FLEXIBLE

MRAT is powered by an advanced, patent-pending and robust data analytics engine. 

It is completely modular, and supports a top-down, machine-learning approach. This allows the level of detail within MRAT to be scaled (up or down) - as needed for more refined risk assessments. The framework for the analytics engine can be customized, and is adaptable with other inter-changeable components.
