GeoSure Global announces new iOS 2.0 and Android release with updated features for essential travel safety information
Today’s premier travel-risk assessment tool, GeoSure Global apps are unique in their ability to provide ultra-accurate and ultra-timely, personalized safety related information to travelers and citizens worldwide.
Using sophisticated predictive analytics, GeoSure derives its exclusive “Global Safety Ratings” scores to quantify safety levels anywhere in the world. It’s an instant, powerful, and highly personalized tool that is further enhanced by ground-truths, shared insights and experiences from GeoSure‘s community of global users.
GeoSure Global apps offer a personalized, analytically modeled assessment of safety worldwide, granular to the neighborhood level. The apps precision helps assure that travel adventures are the adventures one wants.
Utilizing data drawn from hundreds of sources, including narrative data sources and shared intelligence from its own global community, GeoSure delivers vital safety information based on data and predictive analytic methodologies not available to most travelers. Sources include CDC, WHO, United Nations, State Department, Interpol, and data from many national and local authorities and updated global threat statistics.
GeoSure rates locations across six specific safety catetogories from 1 (extremely safe) to 100 (extremely dangerous) for over 4000 cities and neighborhoods around the world. We believe no one has ever provided this detailed level of urban safety ratings before.
The company’s data collection and statistical analysis engine continually tracks and analyzes the vast and ever-changing landscape of information about conditions on the ground the world over. The proprietary risk algorithms are enhanced with input from members of the GeoSure community, who receive reward points for filing first-hand reports. Awareness of unfavorable events — or conditions safer than expected — enables and empowers travelers. With better information, travelers and citizens can know less familiar destinations or their own neighborhoods to make optimal travel and destination choices.
A dedicated Women’s Safety category is devoted to female travelers on educational, business and holiday trips
