Precision, GIS-ready polygons for expedited analysis
The age of manually drawing building polygons is over. 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.
Feel confident in your data
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.
>95% Valid interpretation
No geographical restrictions
40 million footprints per month
Metadata includes image and extraction dates
Accelerate your workflow
Quickly identify emerging opportunities or risks by expediting and enhancing the way you procure and produce data.
