An orthomosaic map is a single large photograph which is made through running multiple overhead images into a processor which outputs a single image. This image has minimal distortion and gives a bird’s-eye view of an entire property. These maps are a fantastic tool for any property owner or insurer to use because they give a whole new perspective on any property and can be used in so many ways.
- Measurements: These maps are used by property owners and insurers to measure distance, elevation, and any other number of interesting metrics. These measurements provide the backbone for a lot of the powerful analysis BetterView performs.
- Record Keeping: Orthomosaic maps are powerful visuals to have for record keeping. Using these maps helps property owners and insurers track changes in a property over time. Comparing orthomosaic maps allows people to visualize changes in the tree-line, patterns in how the property is used, and under-utilized space.
- Brush-Fire Reports: Orthomosaic maps are fundamental to our Brush-Fire Reports. Fire is unique because it spreads across a property, unlike hail where the entire property is hit. We use orthomosaic maps and other measurements to calculate the overall risk to a property should a wildfire ravage the area.
- 3D Models: Orthomosaic maps are further data-processed and can be used to generate 3D models. These models can be seen on our examples page here.
Orthomosaic maps are an integral way how BetterView is able to generate powerful reports containing key information. As with all our reports, once we fly the area, a report is sent out along with links to view these models at any time. To check out examples of these reports and others click here.
