EagleView Technology Corp., a technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and geographic information system solutions, says it is leading the formation of the Property Drone Consortium.

Chaired by Chris Barrow, president and CEO of EagleView, the consortium represents a collaboration among insurance carriers, construction industry leaders and supporting enterprises that have agreed to work together to promote research, development and the establishment of regulations for the use of unmanned aerial system (UAS) technology across the insurance and construction industries.

“With over 20 years of developing aerial solutions that capture property information, EagleView believes it can utilize patented Pictometry image technologies to further the safe, efficient and scalable use of drone technology for property data collection,” says Barrow.

“We believe this, coupled with the expertise of the charter members in property conditions, claims and underwriting disciplines, will enable the consortium to provide strong and stable information and education to drive regulatory change and development of the usage of drones for data collection throughout the insurance and construction industries,” he explains.

“With numerous carriers and providers of key industry services already committed, this technology initiative will have far-reaching benefits for all involved.”
