BELLEVUE, Wash., September 3, 2020EagleView, the leading technology provider of aerial imagery, property data analytics and GIS solutions, has captured and continues to process ultra-high-resolution Reveal™ aerial imagery following Hurricane Laura, which made landfall on August 27 as a Category 4 hurricane. EagleView’s pre- and post-event imagery comparisons show the extent of Hurricane Laura’s destruction across Louisiana and southeastern Texas.  

EagleView’s pilot network immediately took flight as soon as weather conditions allowed. Along with images from unmanned aerial systems (drones), EagleView is delivering the imagery to customers in local government, insurance and construction following the event. 

With a data library of over 1 billion images, EagleView customers can utilize pre- and post-event imagery to answer critical questions regarding properties and assets post-hurricane. Customers can access both pre- and post-event imagery on EagleView’s viewing platform, CONNECTExplorer.

“It’s incredibly important for our customers to have access to post-disaster images quickly,” said EagleView COO Jay Martin. “EagleView rapidly provides customers to pre- and post-event imagery, allowing them to help homeowners and businesses begin recovering and rebuilding.” 

EagleView applies advanced machine learning technology to both pre- and post-event imagery, which identifies and classifies potential property damage in each image. This technology allows insurance carriers to analyze imagery and close claims more efficiently, resulting in reduced costs per claim and greater homeowner satisfaction. 

“EagleView’s patented machine learning technology quickly puts critical information into the hands of insurance carriers and construction contractors, which is incredibly important when responding to a massive event like Hurricane Laura,” said EagleView CEO Chris Jurasek. “By decreasing the amount of time spent per claim, insurance carriers are able to handle more properties and expedite rebuilding efforts in a significant manner.” 

EagleView will continue its disaster response until all areas of interest are captured and processed for customers.
