Building Footprints

A foundation of GIS-ready polygons for expedited analysis and precision

Take your analysis further

Skip straight to analysis with Ecopia Building Footprints powered by Maxar. 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.

Understand the built environment like never before

Organizations spend too much time and money procuring and producing foundational data only to obtain building footprints derived from inaccurate or outdated sources. Detect and analyze infrastructure with a source you can trust to be both precise and up-to-date. Maxar offers both at the speed and scale you need, from individual metros to entire continents.

Feel confident in your data

Semi-automated footprint extraction combines the best of artificial intelligence and human annotation for consistent, geometrically accurate outlines of each structure's ground-level footprint across dynamic built environments.
