All of these features create what we call aerial intelligence.
True aerial intelligence enables change makers to explore their world at scale, with the same precision and accuracy as if they went onsite — with the added ability to shape the landscape to their needs. Rotate, tilt, and change viewing perspectives to see an area’s every aspect. Ask how tall a building is and get the answer with accurate measurement tools. Discover what an environment would look like without the current landscape of structures and foliage.
This is what’s possible when every dimension of aerial intelligence is synthesized into a central data hub.
Nearmap users are using aerial intelligence to shape their world for the better. From mitigating risk to managing disasters to growing the built environment and creating sustainable communities, the paths to better tomorrows can be found when the right people have the right data.
Here are just some of the things you can do with aerial intelligence.
AI Damage Detection and Assessment
This past August saw communities in Florida’s Big Bend Region wade through the chaos left by Hurricane Idalia. Nearmap captured the damage and provided high-resolution aerial imagery and AI to the insurers in charge of indemnifying impacted residents. These organizations received critical, real-time data, helping them quickly identify severely affected zones and mobilize immediate support for their policyholders.
Within hours of Hurricane Idalia passing through, insurers had access to Nearmap ImpactTriage AI — as well as an analysis of the most directly impacted areas of Keaton Beach, Steinhatchee, and Perry. The results were sobering. In Keaton Beach alone, our AI technology identified over 400 buildings that had suffered some form of damage. Of these, 37 were reduced to rubble, and 237 were severely damaged.
In Steinhatchee, ImpactTriage AI identified more than 120 buildings. Nine were completely destroyed and 73 sustained major damage. The town of Perry looks to be one of the most impacted areas of the storm, with 396 destroyed buildings and 2,852 affected buildings.
