EagleView has received its first post-event images following Hurricane Laura. As soon as weather conditions permitted, EagleView’s fixed-wing aircraft were in the air capturing ultra-high-resolution Reveal aerial imagery at Property Level, which ranges between 0.8-3 inches ground sample distance (GSD) depending on environmental factors.
EagleView imagery is a tool for first responders, insurance carriers, and construction contractors. EagleView provides access to post-event property information such as roof damage, flooding and fallen trees, without having to send people into potentially dangerous areas. Leading up to Hurricane Laura’s landfall on Thursday, Aug. 27, EagleView began staging multiple aircraft to ensure rapid image capture.
Customers can find EarlyAccess images on CONNECTExplorer, EagleView’s interactive viewing platform. While images continue to be processed in-house, seeing the initial impact of the damage from the sky early in the process is an invaluable resource for local governments, contractors, and insurance carriers.
“Doing our part to help affected communities in their time of need is at the core of EagleView’s mission during storm season,” says EagleView CEO Chris Jurasek.
