Like any natural disaster, hurricanes can leave behind extensive damage to life and property. The question asked by NGOs, government agencies, and insurance companies is, “How can we predict the locations where a storm will inflict the most damage?” Modern spatial analysis enables us to predict the impact of disasters in high-risk areas and enable these groups to effectively allocate their resources.

Vertica enables you to analyze location data efficiently and accurately in your database. Here we will show you how to gain insight into real-world challenges using your spatial data with Vertica. In this example, we will perform a point-in-polygon analysis to identify properties that fall within the impact zone of a hurricane. This analysis will identify the areas most affected by a hurricane and visualize them on a heat map.
