HeraldNet: Bothell’s EagleView Helps with Hurricane Irma Efforts
HeraldNet, part of the Everett, Washington, Daily Herald, highlighted EagleView’s post-hurricane image capture following Hurricane Irma. EagleView has imagery in Florida dating back to 2002 to help insurance carriers, emergency responders, property assessors, and other services determine the extent of Irma’s damage.
Aerial imaging firm EagleView Technologies is using 20 planes and drones to help with Hurricane Irma’s relief efforts in Florida.
The Bothell company is using the aircraft to capture post-storm images in Florida to assess damage and help with the recovery.
The company started sending up aircraft as soon as it was permitted to fly, said EagleView President Rishi Daga in a statement.
EagleView has an image library of Florida homes and businesses dating back to 2002. Those images are helping insurance carriers, first responders, nonprofits and local government agencies analyze the impact of the storm comparing the new images with the old ones.
