AIM 3.0

ALL-HAZARDS IMPACT MODEL

Unlike any global hazard exposure model available today.

Finest resolution exposure estimates

Estimates population and capital exposure with precision down to a 30 x 30 meter radius. Uses multiple data sources to perform estimates including Facebook, WorldPop, Global Exposure (GAR), and more.

Estimates by sector / age demographic

Provides exposure estimates with breakdowns by sector and age group. Includes estimates for schools and hospitals and age breakdowns in 5-year increments for vulnerable populations.

Global coverage for any type of hazard

Allows for the estimation of any hazard, anywhere in the world that has an associated polygon, including data-poor environments.

Questions AIM can help you answer:

How many people might be impacted by a disaster?

What is the demographic makeup of the exposed population (e.g. children, elderly, adults)?

What is the value, or replacement cost, of exposed capital (e.g. cost to replace all buildings and infrastructure)?
Which sectors of society are most exposed?

Quickly estimate potential impacts and needs

AIM feeds PDC’s DisasterAWARE system, our automated products, and specialized partner products. It is also provides the data for PDC’s new Event Brief.
