Nearmap July 10 webinar to explore property assessment challenges with aerial imagery and AI

   Conducting property assessments is an expensive and time-consuming process. Conducting in-person inspections of every property often takes too much time, costs too much, and risks error.
   Publicly available imagery is often out of date, or the resolution is too low to show the needed details.
   In a July 10 webinar by Nearmap, an IAAO Strategic Partner, you will learn how governments are turning to aerial imagery companies to accelerate and improve their property assessment processes.
   You will see how aerial imagery provides a current, multi-dimensional view of properties that support desktop assessment and identifies sites that require in-person inspections. Additionally, you will learn how machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) combined with geospatial (GIS) technologies accelerate and improve these workflows.
    The webinar, “Facing Property Assessment Challenges with Aerial Imagery and AI,” will take place at 11 a.m. Central on July 10. Register here. For information on Strategic Partnerships, contact Leann Ritter at ritter@iaao.org.
