By now you are probably already savvy to how aerial imaging and remote viewing have been revolutionizing the roofing industry by providing measurable models and maps from photogrammetry that make estimating easy. So how do you stay on the cutting edge of this technology and make all of this data beneficial?
Gain insight from expert John Keisel, CEO of Imagine Technologies Group and RCS President Heidi J. Ellsworth as they discuss in Season 4 Episode 6 of Roofing Road Trips how aerial imagery technologies work to connect data, people, processes, fill unseen gaps, reduce project errors, and seamlessly flow data from one means to the next.
John tells Heidi about Imagine Technologies Group, a drone service provider/consultant that specializes in property management, commercial roofing and construction. “The business is focused on commercial roofing as a solution for imagery acquisition and that embraces pretty much any place you may be at with your photogrammetry journey,” says John. He explains how reality models maximize visibility and decrease the time to comprehend visual data, enabling decision makers to improve asset performance and reduce costs. All while maintaining quality and increasing accountability.
John explains that a major challenge in producing models with aerial imagery was the difficulty of sharing this information, so they key in making this technology accessible is offering solutions to sharing data without file limitations or hitting firewalls. “The Optelos program is key to manipulating the information, storing it, sharing it and making it actually beneficial,” says John. “They process the imagery for you...They have the platform to view, share, collaborate between your clients, your employees and it's all within their system.”
Using drones to provide high-quality images that can be used in interactive reality modeling and reports, helps everyone involved gain a better insight. “It's all about time efficiency and understanding,” says John.
