The Future Is Now: “Now with high-resolution, 3-D aerial imagery, you can be in another place without leaving your office” With Dr. Rob Newman & Fotis Georgiadis

In the insurance industry, RaaS changes the entire insurance and claim process radically. If the claims adjuster has access to the latest images, including 3-D map content accessible in the cloud, he or she can see the damage without leaving the office. They can measure the affected area at their desk. And with historical photos taken, they can compare before and after shots of the roof. If the damage is real, they can come up with an estimate of repair costs on the spot. They can also determine if photos suggest a fake claim. RaaS has applications for drone deliveries too. For a drone to travel and land safely at your home, it can’t rely on two-dimensional map content alone. There are trees, bushes, neighboring homes and other obstructions to navigate. Only the most up-to-date 3-D elevation information, along with real-time information, will provide a completely safe delivery.
