After talking with his brother-in-law Dave Carlson, who was a roofing salesperson at the time, software engineer Chris Pershing came up with the idea to develop software that could measure a roof using photography. Pershing found that aerial photography provided a close view with high resolutions that were able to obtain accurate roof measurements. Using a birdhouse as a model, Pershing developed software that uses algorithms to infer size, shape, pitch and area of the roof. Pershing filed the first EagleView patent in spring 2007. The company launched in early 2008 and brought on Chris Barrow, a tech executive, a few months later to be CEO with Pershing as the company’s CTO. On December 13, 2011, EagleViews first U.S. patent was issued. The company merged with aerial image company Pictometry International in 2013.
