AI-powered Software

AirWorks Automate™

Increase productivity for all your projects with smarter data-to-deliverable processes. Our autonomous feature extraction software gives AEC firms the tools they need to deliver projects faster, allowing their teams to spend time on value-generating activities instead of menial tasks. Let our patented AI become your hardest working employee at a fraction of the cost.

How It Works

A simple process, built on complex technology.

Our team has spent years developing models that are able to identify and categorize points in aerial imagery, making it possible for our software to distinguish between feature types, resulting in the pixel-accurate basemaps we deliver to clients. See our patented AI algorithms in action.

Bring CAD to the cloud.

Try our self-service option, on its own or as an add-on to our Automate product. Draft directly over satellite or UAV imagery in our cloud-based platform. Nothing complicated, just the simple tools you need to complete your projects. Edit vectors, draw linework, annotate projects, and more –all in the cloud. AW CAD is still in its beta stages, stay tuned for more updates!

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.
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.
