Natural Disaster Assessment & Crises Risk Management
Concerns of private citizen, businesses and organizations are increasing over the far reaching impact of economic losses, human health, food security, etc. due to climate change. ZineQx offers individuals, businesses and their insurers the efficientcy to stay ahead of these global dynamics in order to manage their exposure to extreme catastrophes. ZineQx is a powerful integrated disaster assessment & risk management web and mobile platform that uses economic, human, health & social, infrastrutural, environmental and other macro-economic indicators by implementing big data, machine learning, GIS databases to predict and estimate the impact of hurricane, flooding and other natural and man-made disasters in communities worldwide as a result of rising sea surface temperatures (SST’s) due to climate change
ZineQx is a risk-based asset management information system that uses failure Mode, Effects & Criticality Analyses (FMECA). FMECA has a bottom-up (Detailed) or top-down (Functional) approach to risk analysis and assessments. ZineQx is inductive, meaning data-driven. This information can be technical, practical as well as informative. Data related to an object can be collected on site (in the field from experts, drones, etc.) or it can inputted online (ingested from a database, digital, or collected from documentation, paper base). All input data and the output results must be validated and reliable, which is one of the most important steps in the process. ZineQx data is stored in NoSQL databases as simple features or simple feature access, which refers to a formal standard (ISO 19125-1:2004) that describes how real world objects can be represented in computers, with accentuation on the spatial geometry of these objects. The standard is universally implemented in spatial databases (SDB, such as PostGIS) and spatial databases or dataframes (SDF) format and can be exported to other GIS applications as such as ESRI ArcGIS, QGIS etc. A subset of simple features forms the GeoJSON standard. TopoJSON is subsequently an extension of GeoJSON, which in turn is a specific form of the JSON file format. Dataframes are read from many sources, such as shapefiles, feature classes, GeoJSON, and Feature Layers.
The ZineQx application decomposes the elements in an object or objects that form(s) a system and link the elements of that object or system, thus forming relationship or (a) chain(s). By determining the effect(s) of failure, the failure mode(s) and the cause(s) or mechanism(s) of failure, ZineQx can give a reliable analysis of the life cycle of an individual element, object(s), a composition of elements, and the system, an ensemble of objects (a project or process), in it’s entirety for project-, process-, program- or quality management. The ZineQx methodology is comparable to the steps in the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) technique. These steps form the process during the Analyze phase of the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) process and the Plan phase of Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) activities or RISMAN steps, comparable to NEN-ISO 31000 for risk management and NEN-ISO 55000 & 55001 for asset management and management systems requirements.

Catastrophe Risk Modelling by Category
Infinite Observations has the capacity to model extreme events world wide that enables insurers, re-insurers, governments, locals, officials, organisation, enterprises, businesses and home owners to minimise their potential economic losses based on the probability and magnitude of a hazard
Hurricanes Irma, Dorian and Michael that made direct landfall on the Caribbean islands of Sint Maarten/Saint-Martin, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, and North America; tropical cyclone Amphan and Mangkhut in Bangladesh, India and other Asian countries; wildfires in Australia and California; Heat waves in Europe; COVID-19 pandemic that originated in Wuhan the capital city of Hubei Province in the People’s Republic of China are all but a few natural disasters and crises that devastate communities and threaten the livelihoods of residents worldwide. Inifinite Observations launched its ZineQx Integrated (Hurricane) Natural Disaster Assessment & Crises Risk Management online platform to help consumers deal with the financial, social, etc. devastation of natural disasters while building a network in affected areas through the sharing of information and where individuals, communities and nations can learn from one another. To make use of this services individuals and families can apply for a year long subscription by selecting items below to configure a product that meets their needs and minimize their vulnerability to natural and man-made catastrophes
