Walking a fire loss. Virtual reality scans allow an adjuster to essentially “walk” a loss without being onsite. (Photo: Donan)

When Alan Meadors walks into a fire scene with his Nikon camera, he’s likely to take anywhere from 200 to 300 photos in order to thoroughly document the scene. He captures this many to ensure that if he needs to review these photos in five months (which isn’t uncommon in fire investigations), he will understand exactly where in the house the photos were taken when he looks at them side by side. “I’m able to do that because I walked through the house and I took the photos,” Meadors said. “But if I gave an adjuster or attorney all my photos to go through, they’re going to get lost really quickly.”
