Whether you’re mapping miles of terrain along a future transmission line route, complicated features of a water treatment plant scheduled for upgrades, or a few congested city blocks affected by an upcoming sewer replacement, you know that aerial or mobile surveying is the fastest, safest option for collecting site data.

Now that you have the data, is the tedious process of turning it into site plans or GIS files jamming your system?

Keep utility projects running with uninterrupted service by sending aerial or mobile survey data to AirWorks for processing. Our AI-powered software can identify and create linework for all site features, including complex utility structures (water tanks, overhead wires, traffic poles, telephone poles, etc). Turn your projects around faster than you would with traditional methods by letting AirWorks develop the site plans for design and permitting or shapefiles for GIS databases.

AirWorks can support you in most of your power and utilities projects:

AirWorks for Water Treatment Plants

Large acreage, restricted access areas, and unique site features such as tanks, basins, and catwalks, make water treatment plants ideal candidates for aerial or mobile surveying. However, inefficient data processing might be diluting the benefits of high-tech field methods. Let AirWorks create the intricate linework for wastewater treatment plant site plans, leaving you with more time for valuable tasks and less stress over hitting deadlines.

The Future of Mobility: EVs

AirWorks for Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Infrastructure

With the ambitious goal of EVs comprising 50% of new sales by 2030, public and private sectors need to fast-track development of the infrastructure needed to meet impending vehicle charging demands. Map existing power networks and future EV charging sites using aerial or mobile surveying. Then, plug your site data into AirWorks' geospatial AI drafting software to quickly obtain the site plans needed for design and permitting for upcoming EV infrastructure 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: https://awkb.scrollhelp.site/airworksknowledgebase/Estimated-Delivery-Date.2351923212.html.
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.
