Join the Project
The Disaster Imaging Project is an ongoing research effort that ties into many different CDRP inititives. We are looking for qualified public and private sector entities to collaborate on post-disaster image collection - past examples include utility companies (both public and investor-owned) and insurance companies. If your organization is interested, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
All participants in the Disaster Imaging Project share collected data - this collaboration enables speed and efficiency and is the heart of the concept. By splitting the post-disaster workload among public and private resources and pooling imagery and data everybody wins. Public users such as local and state emergency managers gain critical insight and situational awareness, while private users such as insurance companies can quickly begin assessing damage and starting the claims adjusting process.
To participate, an organization must be willing to accept the direction of CDRP personnel, be willing to share all data collected, and meet the requirements listed below. There are no fees for participation in the post-disaster data collcetion, and all data collected by project participants is shared with all parties. Current and past participants include: local emergency management, state emergency management, insurance companies, private UAS operators, national service providers.
This project exists to move the use of post-disaster imagery forward, not to provide marketing opportunities for particpants. All release of data to parties outside of response agencies and project members is prohibited without the express written permission of CDRP. Particpation in this project is confidential. CDRP will not release participant information, including the name of partners, without written consent.
