Government - AirWorks

Automation for Government Clients

Keep Your GIS Updated with Insights and Analytics

As the built world continues to expand and grow, understanding your assets has never been more important ‒or easier. With thousands of square miles of data acquired every day, governments run into a complex challenge: timely analysis. How can you get valuable information and insights out of your data quickly to make actionable improvements to the communities you serve?

AirWorks is the only solution in the market that can identify and generate vectors from aerial data in record time, allowing governments to affordably plug valuable information into their GIS for quick and efficient decision-making.

In today’s highly digitized world, local governments are placing increased emphasis on creating and maintaining GIS databases. These interactive digital maps can provide decision-makers with the tracking power and creative perspectives they need to identify issues and direct funds to the right initiatives.

A wide range of city and county departments rely on GIS to guide asset management, taxation practices, funding prioritization and more. Remote sensing data can help jurisdictions facilitate community planning, account for increased infrastructure needs, and even defend taxation fees and requirements.

AirWorks’ autonomous drafting can quickly and easily provide governments with the linework they need to keep powerful GIS database maps up to date.

AirWorks is a fit for a variety of government-related projects, from small towns and municipalities to states and federal organizations.

Property Tax Fee Calculations

Building Outlines For Assessment and Appraisal

As residential and commercial property owners modify sites to include new or expanded structures, driveways, or parking lots, appraisers depend on current maps to monitor and revise ever-changing property values and statuses. Update government GIS with AirWorks’ on-demand AI feature extraction software. AirWorks can quickly create updated linework identifying buildings and surrounding attributes from imagery or lidar data, giving appraisers and auditors real-time insights into individual properties, subdivisions, and entire counties. Additionally, using Airworks alongside your parcel or CAMA data can help your team identify permitting gaps and land use types.


Quantifying Impervious Surface for Stormwater Management

With new developments constantly under construction, communities are facing increasingly polluted waterways and overwhelmed infrastructure due to additional runoff. Stormwater fees based on impervious surface area are helping to supplement the assets needed to support drainage and improve aging sewer infrastructure. AirWorks can autonomously delineate impervious surface area, quickly and affordably providing data to calculate equitable stormwater fee allocation. Encourage sustainable drainage solutions for residents and commercial property owners with fair taxation of impervious surfaces.

Remote Asset Management

Asset Management for Government Clients: A Safe, Efficient, and Affordable Approach

Understanding existing conditions is critical for public servants to effectively plan resources and budget. By including AirWorks in your workflow, you can minimize potentially dangerous field work by utilizing remote sensing technology and automated processing. With quick analysis, you're able to quickly identify and prioritize areas that require attention. Budget more efficiently and quantify construction materials easily with our quick area calculations. Through Airworks, you can assure that your constituents are abiding by city ordinances and permits regarding vegetation, fencing, additions and more.


City Planning Departments

We understand your drive to create greener, safer neighborhoods where your residents can work and play. Whether improving trail systems and exploring bike lane feasibility or redesigning intersections and restriping pavements, AirWorks can transform aerial imagery into the GIS maps or design plans necessary to gain big-picture insights and jumpstart community improvement projects.

We ask that clients upload georeferenced orthophotos (.tif), point cloud files (.las/.laz) and a processing area for project processing (.kml). For 2D only work, orthophotos will be sufficient.
In addition, we currently partner with some of the best off-the-shelf imagery providers in the market through our growing Data Marketplace.
If you do not have data collected for a project, you are able to select a vendor and submit an order for feature extraction directly in our app without the need to purchase a separate subscription.
No! While we have found that the most common type of data we receive is from UAVs/UASs, we are also able to process aerial images collected with manned aircraft and even satellites in some cases. We also accept LiDAR data/point clouds in cases where 3D work is needed. The most important thing to remember is that the higher altitude the data was collected at, the lower resolution and detail the images will have. So, we can work with it, but might not be able to guarantee our usual level of accuracy.
We deliver projects in an open source, CAD-compatible format (.dxf). You can then use your CAD software of choice to view and make edits to your project. For 3D projects, we also deliver a classified point cloud (.las) along with the CAD drawing.
Every project is different, and we try to deliver as fast as possible, but given the variability in projects and time it takes for our team to review and ensure the quality is up to standard, we typically deliver projects in 4-5 business days. Here is a breakdown of how we calculate the estimated delivery date:
Any type of engineering/land surveying project where you have collected aerial imagery and need feature extraction works for us. We currently only do work above ground, which includes: ALTA surveys, land development, corridor/transportation/highway work, as-builts, and many more.
It’s not magic, it really works! We have a patented model for point identification and categorization, a team of machine learning experts and civil engineers working on labeling and training even more data to further improve the results of our autonomous outputs. We have established human in the loop processes that are very common in all AI companies to ensure accuracy. Every client project is run through our software for processing, and then reviewed and cleaned up by our small team of CAD drafters in-house in Boston.
