Minimize losses and reduce recovery time

Why we are different

Traditional consultant studies are static and become outdated quickly, but CDP’s approach ensures that our data stays fresh with data pipelines that are constantly refreshed by live sources. By making data more visually approachable, communities can increase transparency, educate a broad public base, raise awareness and collaboration, and increase the chances of success.

Basic Coastal Resilience Data Platform features include:

Public Utilities

Assess the vulnerability of utility infrastructure and potential modifications to existing plans as part of a capital project assessment.

Transportation Network

Identify which roads are more likely to get washed out in a storm and impact access for emergency crews. Understand the risks and impact of damage to ferry docks and airport closures. Raise awareness of the timeframe within which projects should be completed to avoid more serious problems.

Public Buildings and Facilities

Anticipate local government and school closures based on a forecast of an extreme weather event.

Hospital and Health Services
Enable hospital and other entities plan to ensure medical care remains available and accessible to the entire population.
Historical Buildings and Cultural Resources
Show citizens the priceless historic resources that could be lost and spur discussions about how to protect them.
Residential and Commercial Property

Assess the value, risk, and possible protection measures of vulnerable real estate. Protect and increase investments with a compelling Resilience Plan that assures investors and business owners with evidence-based preparation efforts.

Emergency Response

Tailor emergency response plans to the demographics and population density of your community throughout each season.

Vulnerable Populations

Identify locations of vulnerable populations so the public safety officials can prioritize and tailor their rescue efforts.

Natural Resources

Understand threats to the natural environment and predict how shorelines may change in the coming years so to proactively plan for these changes.



Public Safety Toolset

Description & Features

This comprehensive toolset helps city leaders, planners, and managers prepare for, predict, manage, and improve outcomes across emergencies, large events, and public safety concerns.

Community Return on Investment

Confidently meet the needs of your city based on its unique demographics, infrastructure, and documented demands on resources.
Strengthen community resilience by identifying, understanding, and optimizing available resources, response times, and recovery opportunities.
Proactively plan for major events with the predictive and modeling power of data, including staffing, traffic patterns, licensing and permits, and more.
Quickly prepare for a natural disaster and be informed about potential impact across the different areas of your community.
Inform new and current residents about the neighborhoods where they live.
Improve outcomes of emergency personnel through targeted training based on the situations they are most likely to encounter.
Budget effectively and spend efficiently based on actual data and predicted needs.

Why we are different

CDP incorporates dynamic data to provide multifaceted insights and increase the number of successful public safety decisions. Our thoughtful, in-depth analysis is easy for all audiences to visually understand and quickly interpret, allowing for stronger, smarter decisions to be made under pressure.

Basic Public Safety Toolset includes:

Crime Heat Map
Geographically represent the different types of crime across your community with click points to identify exactly which crime occurred in a location. Additionally, this tool has the capability to map and track police presence to see if there is adequate staffing.
Event Planning
As large events (concerts, conventions, fairs, etc.) heavily impact public safety, this feature predicts where individuals will gather for selected events throughout the year, where they are from, and how long they’ll stay.
Weather Layer
Show current and upcoming weather conditions, specified by neighborhood or sub-area, as they impact demand for emergency services.
Emergency Demand Prediction
Predict and prepare for the demand for specific emergency services by neighborhood and by different points in time during the day, week, month, and year.
Emergency Planning
Identify where to efficiently direct appropriate resources during each type of emergency, from mapping where vulnerable populations live to finding ideal locations for shelters or pop-up first aid, food, and water stations. Also map the most efficient routes for full or partial town evacuations.
Public Safety Infrastructure
Identify where current public safety services—hospitals, police and fire departments, clinics— are located, what areas they cover, and where gaps in coverage occur. Determine where and when a new service would most benefit the surrounding community.
Social Media And Public Safety
Analyze social media to measure reaction and public opinion of safety concerns and topics, as well as to help predict and prioritize future crises by using public sentiment and social media to identify the likelihood of an emergency-level event.
Response Time Calculator
Calculate emergency response times based on current traffic and weather conditions to optimize resources and staffing.
Traffic Safety
Map out traffic accidents and visually identify particularly dangerous intersections. Used over time, this tool can also predict where accidents could occur based on mobility data, weather data, and the time of day/week/month/year.



Shark Risk Toolset

Description & Features

Surface real-world data your coastal community needs by combining shark tracking and biographies with an unprecedented combination of hyperlocal and external data.

Community Return on Investment

Increase safety of both public safety personnel and beach visitors by understanding where sharks are likely to swim.
Take appropriate precautions by knowing what preparedness measures are required based on the data.
Save lives by educating first responders and local hospitals about local sharks when known, including the appropriate antibiotics for shark bacteria.
Reduce municipal liability as part of a comprehensive defense strategy should shark attack victims elect to sue.

Why we are different

CDP offers a visual tool that is laser-focused on your local trends and risks to spur effective proactive and reactive solutions. We give you solutions to keep your residents safe while respecting the shark’s key role in the marine ecosystem.

Basic Shark Risk Toolset includes:

Risk by Beach
Target where geotagged sharks are located in relation to the density of people on beaches that day, including a predictive view to see the forecasted level of risk for the next day, week, and month.
Historical Risk
Go back in time and see what the shark risk was yesterday, last week, and last month, and also where geotagged sharks have been swimming.
Detailed Beach Information
View the number of people estimated to be on each beach and how many sharks are in proximity. Overlay with mobile phone coverage and other safety factors such as EMS response time.
Emergency Response
Inform local hospitals about what medicine and antibiotics to keep stocked and prevent the application of an antibiotic that is known to be ineffective.
