Data menu

The data menu below presents the high-level characteristics of the data that Cytora makes available via the Property API. For detailed information such as attribute names or data limitations, refer to the specific dataset section.

Data categories

  • Core - Information about properties and companies that is typically used in underwriting processes, such as Property Usage and Trade Code.
  • Advanced - Information about properties and companies that is either difficult to acquire in machine readable format, such as Listed Building Status or CQC Rating, or not traditionally used in Underwriting, such as Socioeconomic Indices.
  • Proprietary - Information about properties and companies that is difficult to acquire and unique to Cytora, enriched and enhanced using our engineering and modelling capabilities, such as Fire Risk Scores and Adjacent Risk.
