EagleView Provides Post Hurricane Harvey Imagery via Online Tool - 08/09/2017


EagleView Technologies, a provider of aerial imagery and property analytics, has mobilized a fleet of nearly two dozen aircraft to capture detailed, bird's eye view images of Hurricane Harvey's damage to help evacuees assess the storm's impact on their homes. The site is currently being populated in real-time with new imagery as it is captured and processed.

The images are available through a newly launched website - specifically developed in the wake of the hurricane - that displays before-and-after images of properties throughout the affected Texas regions. The online tool is also mobile-friendly for easy access. Recent reports estimate that 30,000 to 40,000 homes have been destroyed by Hurricane Harvey.

"Tens of thousands of residents are evacuating from the Houston area, and we understand how scary it can be to leave your home behind without any insight as to what's happening in the time that you're away," EagleView President Rishi Daga said. "We want to help, and are providing this tool to evacuees at no cost who won't be able to gain access to or see the condition of their property until they return, which could take days or even weeks."

With more than 20 planes rigged with image capture technology flying over the affected areas, EagleView is continuously collecting and processing high-resolution aerial imagery at a rapid rate to help evacuees, first responders, officials and insurance companies assess the storm's damage and help Texans get back on their feet faster. In addition to the latest real-time photos, EagleView has taken images of every coastal county in the Lone State over the last 12 months, making before-and-after photos possible.
