Welcome to Bird.i

We make Earth Observation social.

We bring satellite images to the mass market.



Have you ever looked up your house on Google Maps?

How long ago did you sell that old car? Haven’t you had that extension for years? We live in a world where we have satellites taking photos of the Earth every day. Why do we take it for granted that the images we see are out of date?



We are making satellite images cheaper,
relevant and easier to access.

Our data analytics service identifies locations with high demand, identifying only the pixels that matter to multiple users, making them affordable to more people.

to the mass market

Our platform provides direct access to multiple image data archives, enabling access to the freshest possible data that is relevant to your individual needs.
