BenchmarkTM Hail Maps is simply the fastest hail mapping service available with an analysis of hail size within minutes of the event’s occurrence. Hail storm data is mapped in a highly intuitive display for detailed visualization of the overall area impacted by a storm with zooming and panning tools to county, community, neighborhood and street level.
Utilizing the most up-to-date dual pol radar technology, hail size data is provided as 14 color-coded shaded areas layered on the map which indicates hailstone size in ¼” diameter increments starting at ¾” up to 4″. This resolution helps to target those areas where the most severe damage occurred.
Hail Maps ensures that every event, no matter how large or small, is captured and available so that all opportunities to serve those impacted by hail can be addressed. Data is provided for metro regions as a single day. Purchase options for subscription lengths of 3, 6, or 12 months, entire states, the continental US or Canada are available by calling customer support.
