Global Feature Extraction

Our Global Feature Extraction offers the ability to extract high-accuracy features from any geospatial imagery at a continental-scale. Leveraging the most up-to-date imagery sources available, we apply our advanced AI systems to rapidly generate HD Vector Maps of any feature that is discernible from source imagery. Leverage Global Feature Extraction to produce millions of square kilometres of HD Vector maps monthly, all while maintaining the accuracy of a trained GIS professional.


Why Ecopia Global Feature Extraction?

The default method of generating HD Vector Maps often consists of first acquiring geospatial imagery, and then having manual image analysts annotate the imagery. This is costly, time consuming, and does not scale. Ecopia leverages AI to dramatically reduce human effort in this process. Ecopia offers the ability to generate and maintain millions km2 of HD Vector Maps for any area on the earth, all with the quality of a trained GIS professional. Ecopia is able to leverage a global network of imagery provider partners to source the most recent high-resolution imagery for any area, and can also alternatively ingest customer-provided imagery.
