Hurricane Michael (October 2018)
In the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, aircrews conducted multiple imagery flights of the affected areas during the first month with aircraft specially equipped with WaldoAir’s advanced aerial imaging systems. The high quality imagery collected was then processed using Skyline's Photomesh into 2D True Orthophotos and 3D models of the affected areas. This imagery was combined in Skyline's TerraExplorer Pro application with pre-disaster satellite imagery and precise data from Dewberry’s post-hurricane beach survey, enabling easy visualization, classification and analysis of the debris, evaluation of the storm’s impact on the surrounding beach and dunes, and more, thus dramatically speeding up vital damage assessment efforts. Using TerraExplorer and 3 collections over the first month, the team was able to quickly monitor recovery progress, assess follow-up support, and reduce delays in assistance.
