Hurricane Florence Hits Land. Nearmap Hits the Air.



Nearmap to capture East Coast Post-Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence is threatening the East Coast and we hope all are safe and taking the proper precautions. After the event, Nearmap plans to deploy aircraft to capture high-res aerial imagery of the affected areas.

Imagery will be available for:
govt-icon Public Safety:  Access to immediate, crystal-clear aerial imagery of areas affected by storm damage for emergency response routing and safety.
utilities_icon-1 Utilities:  View all areas where above-ground utilities have been affected and also see where infrastructure is down and causing hazards.
construction_icon Reconstruction Efforts:  Compare historical image captures with post-event imagery to see structure elements and provide proper measurements to rebuild.
insurance_icon Insurance:  View impacted properties to see first-hand damage and potential structural damage.
