New service uses imagery from a UAV (drone) to create a package that includes ultrahigh-resolution imagery and 3D exterior roof and wall details
Lehi, Utah, September 25, 2017 — Geomni, a Verisk Analytics business (Nasdaq:VRSK), has announced a new service that allows customers to dispatch a licensed, qualified UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) pilot to collect imagery and data about a structure. The information from the UAV inspection is used to create a Geomni Property data package, which includes ultrahigh-resolution imagery and 3D exterior roof and wall details that fully integrate with North America’s most widely used repair estimating system. This supplements the data available from Geomni’s vast database of imagery collected across the country by its fleet of aircraft. The data can be used by estimators, architects, appraisers, inspectors, assessors, and many other professionals who work with property.
When immediate access to the property is available for the UAV inspection, the full package with detailed data, images, and report is usually delivered in less than 72 hours.
The Geomni Property solution now offers customers three types of data collection for imagery and property information:
- Geomni’s comprehensive database of property-specific imagery and data collected continuously by its fleet of aircraft
- Geomni’s post-catastrophe flight imagery and data that shows damage to buildings caused by the catastrophic event
- imagery and data collected from a UAV using Geomni technology to collect, analyze, and process the data
“The new UAV inspection service helps a wide range of property professionals fill some key needs, while still delivering the important dimensions and property detail found in all Geomni Property data packages,” said Geomni’s president, Jeffrey C. Taylor. “The UAV inspection shows ‘at the moment’ conditions, such as damage on a very steep or unsafe roof. It can provide information for roofs with materials that are easily damaged when walked on. And our ultrahigh-resolution imagery can be used to determine the scope of damages—plus many more uses that help provide information to ensure the safety of those working at the site.”
