In the wake of the Hurricane Sandy, EagleView Technologies and Pictometry International Corp. each played a significant role in assisting insurance professionals with claims processing. Pictometry’s planes were in the air within days after the storm and captured more than 160,000 images of the aftermath, while EagleView provided tens of thousands of roof and wall reports to claims professionals. Having merged in January, EagleView and Pictometry can now bring a complete set of business solutions to claims professionals to help them prepare and respond when the next event occurs.

Last year, Superstorm Sandy caused an unprecedented amount of damage in one of the nation’s most highly populated regions. The effects were felt down miles of coastline across several states. As if a hurricane wasn’t enough, a fierce Nor’easter was rapidly approaching the same area. It was clear that an unusually high number of claims were going to need to be processed. To be able to tackle such a task, major insurance carriers and independent adjusting firms turned to aerial-image based technologies provided by EagleView and Pictometry. The industry’s highest quality aerial images captured by a portion of Pictometry’s 73 aircraft fleet helped these companies assess the storm’s widespread impact.
