Here Come the House Paparazzi


Zaio is a Canadian corporation that is in the process of photographing and appraising each and every property in cities across the U.S. That means every house, commercial building, industrial and institutional structure is being photographed and appraised property-by-property and street-by-street. The resulting database of images and valuations is called “GeoPic,” and will go into a database the company hopes to sell to banks, insurance companies and real estate agents.
Zaio is also promoting it as an effective aid to police, fire and ambulance dispatching.
