Verisk Insurance Solutions, a unit of Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK), announced it has incorporated a new desktop inspection feature into 360ValueR .   on high-quality aerial imagery, 360Virtual Inspection(TM) lets insurers confirm property location and examine many exterior building characteristics during the underwriting process.

360Virtual Inspection provides up to seven different views of the property to determine characteristics including building style, roof shape and materials, exterior wall type, and more. It also includes proprietary measuring tools to determine additional property characteristics such as square footage. The application can be used for both residential and commercial properties and, in some cases, may provide a low-cost alternative to an on-site property inspection.
