Government & GIS

Keep Maps and Databases Updated with Insights and Analytics

Mapping has never been more important ‒ or easier. With thousands of square miles of area already mapped, governments are running into the problem of data management. How do you get valuable information and insights out of your data to bring about actionable insights?

AirWorks is the only solution in the market that can identify and generate vectors from geospatial data in record time, allowing governments to plug valuable information into their GIS databases for quick 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 are starting to rely on GIS to guide everything from budgeting to social services. Properly processed aerial imagery can be input into a database that can help jurisdictions facilitate community improvement projects, update emergency services databases, and more.

Easily obtainable satellite or manned aircraft imagery combined with AirWorks’ autonomous drafting can quickly and easily provide local governments with the linework and shapefiles they need to keep powerful GIS database maps up to date.

AirWorks is a fit for a variety of GIS-related projects, from local to federal governments across the US, or abroad.

Property Tax Fee Calculations

Taxation Departments

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. Update GIS database maps with AirWorks’ on-demand AI feature extraction software. AirWorks can quickly create uncomplicated linework identifying buildings, pavements, and more from current satellite or manned aircraft imagery, giving appraisers real-time insights into individual properties and entire neighborhoods.

Impervious Surface Runoff Analysis

Revenue Department Stormwater Fees

With new developments constantly under construction, communities are facing increasingly polluted waterways and overtaxed storm sewer systems created by additional runoff. Stormwater fees based on impervious surface areas are helping to supplement the funds needed to clean up waterways and improve aging storm sewer infrastructure. Let AirWorks identify roofs and concrete and asphalt pavements from current satellite or manned aircraft imagery, providing the information your jurisdiction needs to quickly and easily calculate impervious surface areas for stormwater fees.

Updated Maps for 911 Dispatch

Emergency Services

When there’s an emergency, every second counts. 911 dispatchers need to know exactly where to send help and how crews can access the site. GIS software converts GPS coordinates from 911 calls into dispatchable addresses, but rezoning, divided lots, and new subdivisions, multi-family housing, and commercial developments mean addresses and streets are constantly in flux. Using current manned aircraft or satellite imagery, AirWorks can produce on-demand shapefiles detailing real-time layouts of roads and buildings. Seamlessly integrate the up-to-date maps with your GIS database and current property data to give 911 dispatchers every available edge.

Mapping for Community Improvement Projects

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.
