CENTENNIAL, Colo., Oct. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Vexcel Data Program, the world's largest aerial imagery program, has collected high-resolution aerial imagery of buildings and properties impacted by Hurricane Ian. The unprecedented level of destruction and scope of this event means thousands of homes, buildings, and other structures are destroyed or have sustained heavy damage.

Vexcel, on the behalf of its partner the Geospatial Insurance Consortium (GIC), activated a full response to Hurricane Ian by deploying multiple fixed-wing aircraft to collect super-detailed imagery at a 7.5-10cm resolution.
