Not all maps are created equal. Neptune Flood uses the same LiDAR technology used by NASA and the U.S. government, that includes satellite and aircraft data integration. By imaging light detection and remote sensing radar, accurate digital land survey maps create a precise footprint of the earth. The remote sensing technology can see through clouds, smoke or any other weather condition to produce highly detailed, accurate images. This is possible by laser technology that blankets the surface of the earth and tracks elevation data points. Better information helps us identify the real 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.

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 it works

Light Detection and Ranging collects 3-dimensional points (called clouds) of the Earth’s surface. Airborne 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 integrate with information from the aircraft’s GPS and orientation data (pitch, roll, and yaw) to produce data points. Each data point records a precise horizontal position, vertical elevation, and other attribute values.

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