Aerial and Digital Imagery

Aerial and digital imagery is the use of digital images, including those in 3D, by home/property insurers to view properties, as well as the software that analyzes the images to estimate size, proximity to risks, and location for physical locations or properties. It is usually offered via an Internet service of data as a service (DaaS) in which users, such as homeowners or commercial property insurers, pay monthly subscription fees or pay by use to get information on the risks they are underwriting or claims they are investigating.[1]
