Abstract The GeoSure Insurance Product (GIP) provides the potential insurance risk due to natural ground movement. It incorporates the combined effects of the 6 GeoSure hazards on (low-rise) buildings and links these to a postcode database - the Derived Postcode Database. A series of GIS (Geographical Information System) maps show the most significant hazard areas. The ground movement, or subsidence, hazards included are landslides, shrink-swell clays, soluble rocks, running sands, compressible ground and collapsible deposits. This document accompanies the latest Version 7 release (May 2015) of the GeoSure Insurance Product and included Derived Postcode Database.
