EagleView Capturing Images of Extensive Hurricane Laura Damage

Aerial imagery and remote measurement leader has begun high-resolution image capture following historic event  

BELLEVUE, Wash., August 30, 2020EagleView, the leading technology provider of aerial imagery, property data analytics, and GIS solutions, is in the air capturing ultra-high-resolution Reveal™ aerial imagery following Hurricane Laura. The hurricane made landfall on August 27 as a strong Category 4 hurricane with winds of 150 mph. 

With a data library of over 1 billion aerial images, EagleView’s customers in local government, insurance and residential construction can rapidly review changes between pre- and post-event imagery to fully understand the storm’s impact. In the public sector this is essential for rebuilding efforts. Independent insurance adjusters and contractors use EagleView imagery to assist homeowners and businesses with their recovery efforts. 

“Initiating high-resolution image capture immediately following the storm enables a more accurate and all-encompassing view of the damage below,” said EagleView COO Jay Martin. “Using both fixed-wing aircraft and unmanned aerial systems (drones), EagleView’s disaster response fleet is able to capture industry-leading aerial imagery quickly and effectively, providing the most detailed look at the areas most affected by the storm.” 

With its patented Reveal image portfolio, EagleView’s imagery is over 70 times more detailed than satellite images and up to 4 times more detailed than standard aerial imagery. This unprecedented level of clarity ensures customers have a clear view of what is happening on the ground without having to set foot in potentially dangerous areas. 

“We provide our customers with the data they need to begin the rebuilding process,” said Martin. “By closely monitoring the storm and the airspace in its aftermath, we are able to take to the air first, allowing us to serve our customers most efficiently in their time of need.” 

EagleView will continue its response until all areas of interest have been captured.
