Cadcorp Risk Modeller provides analytical functionality for determining risk by combining the effects of spatial and attribute data from a range of different layers

Cadcorp SIS Desktop and Cadcorp Workload Modeller assist fire and rescue services in producing their Integrated Risk Management Plans (IRMP). Risk Modeller is an application for locating, assessing and analysing risk coverage.

Risk Modeller can be used to create multiple risk maps based on historical data, projected data and demographics as well as changes to population distribution and transport links. It can be used to test the impact of various risk factors, the options include:

Life risk analysis

Attribute Risk
Using unlimited attributes from a layer, weightings can be assigned to different risk factors, which are then combined to produce an aggregate risk figure for an area. Attributes such as demographic, census, economic and population data can be used. These queries can be saved, loaded and recalled. 

Quantitative Risk
This technique aggregates point data according to the boundary features they fall within.  The point data can be counted using geographic features, an automatically created grid or using an attribute for greater granularity.

Road related risk
Life Risk

Fatalities, casualties and rescues are calculated, weighted and combined to produce a single life risk value against geographic features or an automatically created grid.

Link Related Risk
As well as analysing risk within geographic areas, risk on different stretches of road can be calculated using historic incident data. Snapping and assigning incidents to the road network can be performed to create a density report which describes the number of incidents per mile.


Route Cost RiskRoute cost risk
Calculate the time it takes for appliances to mobilise to defined locations, using the road network. It can identify those areas that are outside the benchmark attendance targets and therefore potentially have a higher level of risk. 

All risk modelling uses thematic mapping for the presentation of results. Pre-defined themes or heat maps quickly identify and compare risk between scenarios. Results are created as schema columns on existing or new datasets, automatically archiving the scenario and allowing multiple risk combinations to be compared and contrasted.

The application is designed to be uncomplicated and easy to understand. The graphical and geographical capabilities coming from its close integration with Cadcorp SIS make the interpretation of modelling outcomes straightforward.

"We manage our performance closely to ensure we continue to deliver positive outcomes to the communities of Lincolnshire. The software that Cadcorp supplies, assists us in matching resources with demand and risk."

-Matt King, Integrated Risk Manager at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue
