All maps are not created equally. Neptune Flood uses LiDAR and IfSAR – the same technology used by NASA and the U.S. government . Using satellites and aircrafts, LiDAR and IfSAR (light detection and remote sensing radars) are integrated to provide the most accurate digital land surveys available. Better information helps us identify the true cost of your insurance, saving millions of homeowners money. If it’s good enough for satellite missions and military ops, it’s good enough for us.

Neptune uses LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) and IfSAR – the same technologies the U.S. government uses for satellite missions and military ops. LiDAR is a laser technology that creates high resolution land surveys that we integrate with Superman’s x-ray vision aka IfSAR, a remote sensing technology that sees through clouds, smoke or any other weather condition to produce highly detailed, accurate images.

Better Data leads to Better Savings

Neptune uses the most accurate and comprehensive elevation data in the world to make sure you aren’t overcharged for flood insurance. Our geospatial analysis tells us if you’re in a lower cost flood zone, so we can provide lower rates, even though many insurance companies (including the NFIP) may have rated you higher.

How LIDAR works

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) collects 3-dimensional points (called clouds) of the Earth’s surface. Airborne LiDAR laser scanners shoot up to 400,000 pulses of light per second. The laser transmits these pulses and then records the time delay to calculate elevation values. Values are integrated with information from the aircraft’s GPS and orientation data (pitch, roll, and yaw) to produce data points. Each data point is recorded with precise horizontal position, vertical elevation, and other attribute values.

LiDAR is the most detailed and accurate method of creating digital elevation models, and now you can save up to 25% on your flood insurance with this new technology. Find out today just how much you can save with an easy, quick quote.
