EagleView Technologies Issues Patents, Makes Acquisition

Bothell, Wash.-based EagleView Technologies Inc., a provider of aerial imagery, measurements, analytics and GIS solutions, has announced the U.S. Patent Office recently awarded two patents for inventions surrounding the improved capture of aerial imagery and the use of that imagery for the creation of roof reports. “System for Detecting Image Abnormalities,” which describes a method for automatically detecting image abnormalities caused by excessive sun glare, bears U.S. Patent Number 8,515,198. “System and Process for Roof Measurement Using Aerial Imagery,” which describes a method for the creation of roof reports directly from aerial imagery, bears U.S. Patent Number 8,515,125.

“EagleView is committed to ongoing research and development initiatives in support of its customers and markets,” states EagleView President and CEO Chris Barrow. “We will continue to leverage our vast engineering resources resulting in an ever-broadening intellectual property portfolio.”

In other news, EagleView Technologies has acquired all of the assets of Mobise Inc., a software company focused on bringing desktop workflow to mobile applications. The asset acquisition highlights EagleView’s ongoing mission of providing progressive, technologically innovative solutions.

Mobise, a Redmond, Wash.-based company, is known for Mobise Appraiser, a mobile application that extends the power of desktop appraisal to mobile devices for easy field review and workflow. The app provides the ability for users to consult and modify data while in the field. The added capacity to capture and edit floor plans, photos and notes directly from the field while integrating them into a relational database, such as Pictometry CONNECT, has made Mobise Appraiser of great interest to assessment offices throughout the nation.

“The Mobise acquisition allows us to continue to incorporate mobility technology with our current, web-based solutions and imagery. Not only will this incrementally expand our mobile assessment solutions, but this team will also be key in developing additional mobile applications for the many markets we serve, including insurance and construction,” Barrow notes.
