Our Story

Bird.i is on a mission to make satellite imagery accessible, affordable, and usable for the everyday business user. To achieve this, we curate the best satellite imagery from multiple providers into one platform. Combining proprietary satellite imagery and artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Bird.i captures real-time images and insights of ongoing projects allowing for more timely, better-informed decision making.

On April 6, 2020,  Hanley Wood | Meyers Research acquired Bird.i with the shared vision of providing the construction industry with satellite imagery to find and assess land, track build progress, and monitor portfolio of projects. The addition of Bird.i to Hanley Wood | Meyers Research’s portfolio of products will further our mission of making satellite imagery accessible, affordable, and usable for the everyday business user.
