Blom’s oblique aerial images in insurance industry


Norway: Blom signed an agreement with KLP Skadeforsikring for use of oblique aerial images within the insurance industry. The agreement gives KLP Skadeforsikring access to Blom’s geographical server, BlomURBEX, to allow users to download oblique and vertical aerial images.

KLP Skadeforsikring will use the imagery for analysis of buildings and other risks related to tender processes, documentation of insured objects, settlement documentation, review and analysis of existing portfolio and in relation to cumulative analysis.

”In our daily work we are dependent on calculating risk of, and insurance value on, many different types of constructions. Earlier, this resulted in a lot of travelling for our employees, as our customers’ buildings are located throughout Norway. The new tool now allows us to measure and perform visual risk analysis through the screen. We believe this will save us time, resources and travel expenses”, said, Liv-Aina Ringdal, Underwriter KLP Skadeforsikring AS.

“The agreement with KLP Skadeforsikring represents another new market for our geographical server, BlomURBEX and our oblique imagery”, said, Dirk Blaauw, CEO Blom.

Blom’s database of oblique aerial images consists of unique oblique aerial images covering more than 1,000 city areas, and 4,000 individual cities, in Europe.
