EagleView Now Capturing Post-Event Imagery Following Hurricane Irma

Bothell, WA—Eagle View Technologies (“EagleView®”), the leading provider of aerial imagery and property analytics for the government, insurance and commercial sectors, is actively flying to acquire post-storm imagery in Florida following Hurricane Irma. With more than 20 planes staged or in the air, EagleView is continuously capturing high-resolution aerial imagery to enable rapid assessment and response to Hurricane Irma relief efforts.

Using both fixed-wing aircraft and drones, EagleView captures imagery to support post-hurricane insurance claims adjusting, property assessment, public safety and land surveying professionals. Additionally, EagleView is actively utilizing imagery and machine learning capabilities in post-Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.

“With these hurricanes affecting so many Americans, we’re putting our planes in the air as soon as possible to begin the image capture process,” stated EagleView President Rishi Daga. “From our unique high-resolution post-event imagery to our industry-leading machine learning capabilities, EagleView’s technology can massively accelerate recovery efforts and because of this, we find it crucial to take flight immediately once permitted into the airspace.”

EagleView’s historical image library, dating back to 2002 in Florida, offers insurance carriers, first responders, non-profit organizations and local government agencies the ability to analyze the impact of the storm on homes, commercial buildings and infrastructure by comparing previously captured imagery with the latest post-event images. Image capture and processing post-Hurricane Irma will take place continuously over several weeks, with EagleView making constant updates to its nearly four-petabyte imagery and data library.

“We have access to an impressive amount of resources in Florida and the surrounding areas, allowing us to provide the largest post-storm image capture capabilities to our clients,” commented Jay Martin, Senior Vice President of Operations at EagleView. “Our team is working around the clock to deliver imagery to those who need it most following these devastating weather events.”

EagleView is capturing varying types of aerial imagery throughout Florida. This includes its ultra-high-resolution (UHR) imagery, also known as Reveal™ imagery, which is the highest resolution aerial imagery available on the market today.
