How it works

Satellite image showing housesImagery ©2018 DigitalGlobe
1

Image Acquisition

First, we work with high quality satellite image providers like DigitalGlobe and Planet to acquire imagery for the specified date and region.

2

Deep Learning

Next, we run one of our deep learning algorithms on the imagery. This produces a confidence that each pixel is part of the target feature (in this example, buildings).

Post-processing

Finally, we use a suite of computer vision techniques to turn these probabilities into usable data such as shape, size, and density of buildings.

CrowdAI is an extremely valuable partner for us driving cutting-edge innovation. We see their infrastructure detection adding a ton of value for our customers.
