Wind, solar, and other renewable sources are the future of energy production –but that doesn't mean projects are getting any easier. Site selection requires balancing resource availability with optimal topography, environmental features, and proximity to the grid as well as complicated zoning and permitting requirements.

With so many upfront obstacles, let AirWorks help give you the best chance at smooth sailing. Assess overall feasibility of potential wind and solar energy project sites and then continue on to design and permitting with plans developed from your survey-grate aerial or mobile data. Invest in AirWorks' technology and always receive quick-turnaround site plans that can help streamline your workflow.

In every phase, AirWorks’ patented AI feature extraction software is standing by and ready to generate the site plans to fuel your renewable energy project.

Pre-Construction Solar Farm Mapping

With the demand for solar heating up, project teams need to be able to efficiently develop the site plans needed to evaluate potential solar farm locations and initiate design and permitting. Keep solar energy projects on track with timely, AI-developed deliverables of existing site conditions.

Pre-Construction Rooftop Solar Mapping

From remote warehouses to urban parking garages, more and more companies are looking to make the most of their square footage by installing rooftop solar. AirWorks is ready to help your team shine by creating the linework and plans needed to get rooftop solar evaluations and final projects started on time.

Pre-Construction Wind Farm Mapping

Delays in preparing the existing site plans needed for feasibility assessments, design, and permitting can create unexpected turbulence in wind farm project schedules. Keep projects flowing with AirWorks’ advanced AI drafting software.

Renewable Energy Infrastructure Mapping

Wind and solar projects don’t end with turbines and photovoltaic panels. When developing the infrastructure to transfer energy to substations and points of interconnection to the grid, engage AirWorks to deliver site plans for feasibility, design, and permitting.

As-Built Site Plans for Renewable Energy Projects

Once your renewable energy project is complete, create a final as-built site map of your solar cells or wind turbines and corresponding infrastructure using UAV/UAS or manned aircraft aerial imagery processed by AirWorks’ AI feature extraction software.

At project closeout, simply collect an aerial or mobile dataset, send it to AirWorks, and receive an accurate, accessible digital record for permits that also integrates directly with asset management systems to track site conditions and evaluate future improvements.

AirWorks currently does work directly related to GIS databases and with certain government entities. Learn more about our GIS work.

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.
