EarthDefine Announces the National Building Map: A Seamless Source of Building Footprint Data
The National Building Map product is powered by state-of-the-art deep neural networks. These are a class of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that enable accurate extraction of ground features like building footprints from high resolution aerial imagery across large scales and highly diverse geography. This AI based approach allows EarthDefine to repeatedly extract building footprints from newer imagery that removes older buildings and adds newer construction to create a consistently updated snapshot of the built environment in the US. The building polygon data has an average accuracy of 98% and is updated every 3 months.
EarthDefine's GIS-ready building footprints will help support better decision making in applications like insurance risk assessment and 911 response and routing that need accurate location data on built-up areas.
Besides providing universal addresses and geographic coordinates for all structures, EarthDefine can also extract additional property attributes...
