Global Footprint Extraction

Global Footprint Extraction offers the ability to extract high-accuracy building footprints on a continental-scale anywhere on earth. Ecopia.ai leverages global imagery partnerships to gain access to imagery anywhere on earth. We then apply our AI systems to rapidly generate an HD Vector Map of building footprints for any area of interest. Our production capacity currently exceeds 40 million building footprints per month, and continues to expand each month as our artificial intelligence system continuously learns from more data.

Why Global Footprint Extraction?

The default method of generating building footprints often consists of acquiring geospatial imagery, and having manual image analysts annotate the imagery. This is costly, time consuming, and does not scale. Ecopia.ai offers the ability to gain access to millions of building footprints for any area on the earth without having to source imagery or manage a team of image analysts.

Success Story: USA 

169+ Million Building Footprints available off the shelf.

Ecopia U.S. Building Footprints powered by DigitalGlobe is a semi-automated solution produced with a speed, consistency and scale that no other commercial product on the market can match. The 2D vector polygon dataset has a greater than 95% accuracy rating, a uniquely high percentage in the industry, and will be refreshed every six months based on new DigitalGlobe imagery.

Success Story: Tanzania

We generated the first and only complete map of building footprints for all of Tanzania. 18.5 million building footprints were extracted from DigitalGlobe high-resolution satellite imagery across the nearly 1 million km2 country. This building footprint HD Vector Map now supports non-governmental organizations in disease eradication and wildlife conservation initiatives.
