Ecopia Building Footprints powered by DigitalGlobe takes care of the tedious work, so you can focus on the analysis. By leveraging the most advanced high-resolution satellite imagery, artificial intelligence, and cloud-compute power available, we build and deliver precision footprint shapefiles at the scale your projects demand.
Organizations across all industries are spending too much time and money procuring and producing data only to obtain building footprints derived from inaccurate and outdated sources. Your organization needs to detect and classify infrastructure, and you need a resource you can trust to be both precise and up-to-date. DigitalGlobe offers both at the scale you need, from individual metros to entire continents.
Rapid production ensures you receive up-to-date building footprints for your specific area of interest.
Semi-automated footprint extraction combines the best of artificial intelligence and human analysis for consistent, geometrically accurate outlines of each structure's ground-level footprint across dynamic built environments.
More than 95% valid interpretation
No geographical restrictions
40 million footprints produced per month
Metadata includes image and extraction dates
Quickly identify emerging opportunities or risks by expediting and enhancing the way you procure and produce data.
