About Us
BetterView helps businesses make better decisions with aerial data.

Our Company

Based in San Francisco and founded in 2014 by David Lyman and Dave Tobias, BetterView uses drones to provide a cost effective, safe and easy way to capture a comprehensive set of aerial building imagery and data so you can make insightful business decisions.
The company works with a network of UAV/Drone operators throughout the United States to take aerial imagery and inspect properties for potential problems. BetterView’s beachhead market is providing roof inspections to insurance, property management and real estate companies.
The process for our customers is easy. BetterView takes care of everything. When a request comes through, we assign a qualified operator to fly the job to provide detailed photographs of the property. These images can either be delivered to the customer as a final product or analyzed by a roofing construction expert and generated into a report. BetterView is insured and handles all aspects of contracting, owner engagement, and operator payment.
