Explorations in Geospatial Analytics: A Case Study using FEMA’s 50 Years of Flood Insurance Data

FEMA has provided a marketplace for flood insurance policies tailored to homeowners and businesses since the 1970s, and recently made its dataset of over 2 million claims and more than 10 million policies available to the general public. This rich collection allows for culling actionable insights relating to the evolution of this devastating peril, and provides meaningful contributions to our understandings of climate risk.  Join us to learn how open source data science tools can be applied in novel ways to make new discoveries with data embedded in especially large and complex datasets.
