AllAfrica: South Africa: Drones Deployed to Assess Cape Fire Losses. “INSURANCE companies are deploying drones to inspect and quantify fire damage at the University of Cape Town (UCT). They have sought the assistance of leading legal operator, UAV Industries, a UCT alumni owned and managed company, to inspect the total value of the loss. Commercial drone pilots are conducting a 3D survey of all damaged structures using HD and thermal photogrammetry, an application whereby drones capture a large number of high-resolution photos over a specific area.”
