CoreLogic (Irvine, Calif.), a provider of property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions, has announced the launch of its mobile application for SkyMeasure, a residential and commercial aerial roof measurement service. The mobile application uses the same advanced geocoding technology as the desktop version, while also increasing access for roofing and insurance professionals to ParcelPoint, the CoreLogic proprietary property parcel database, according to the vendor.

CoreLogic says that the mobile extension of SkyMeasure increases the ease and convenience of accessing roofing data on a real-time basis for field professionals, especially since reports can be generated quickly and on-the-go, delivering results in as little as three hours. In addition to offering property measurement reports and status updates, the mobile application also provides historical property measurement data. The mobile application is free with in-app purchase options, and is available for both Apple and Android devices.

“Combining the vast CoreLogic parcel-level data with our precise geocoding technology in this new SkyMeasure mobile app will greatly improve efficiency and convenience for industry professionals who are rarely sitting at a desk,” comments Andrew Zickell, senior director of strategic business intelligence for CoreLogic. “With fingertip access, roofing and property measurement data, powered by the largest parcel database in the country, professionals will be able to produce more accurate and timely assessments.”

More Comprehensive View of All Structures

Connecting parcel boundaries provided by ParcelPoint to aerial-based property measurements like SkyMeasure provides a more comprehensive view of all structures on a given parcel of land, resulting in more accurate assessments for roofing repair and replacement, the vendor notes. ParcelPoint, a patented CoreLogic solution, utilizes the largest and most comprehensive parcel database in the U.S., covering 97 percent of parcels and all land-use types in 2,775 counties, the vendor asserts. CoreLogic claims to be the only parcel provider that employs the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy to quantifiably assess the spatial accuracy of its data.
