Satellite Imagery for Construction

Find and assess land, track build progress, and monitor portfolios with the latest satellite imagery.


find and assess land for development

Identifying and assessing potential development sites relies on current and comprehensive data. Using up-to-date satellite imagery as part of this data mix offers a source of visual truth to the decision-making process. The ability to access present and historical views of a site can not only give you a clear record of how the area and its surroundings have changed over time but also help you to pre-qualify sites on your shortlist, saving you valuable inspection time.


track & record progress

Monitoring globally-distributed projects often involve relying on second-hand information or physically traveling to a site to get the full picture. Using the latest satellite imagery enables construction to be tracked remotely, saving valuable resources. Accessing historical imagery allows stakeholders to keep indisputable records of site progression which could be used to accompany reports and site assessments. In addition, the ability to explore areas remotely means you can keep a close eye on competitor activity, even if you’re on the other side of the world.


monitor your portfolio

With a large property portfolio, operations and maintenance management can be challenging. From identifying roof ponding to spotting encroaching shrubbery, access to up-to-date high-resolution satellite images allows you to keep a close eye on your property and the surrounding landscape – allowing you to spot potential issues before they become major problems. Bird.i’s platform adds a valuable layer of timely, tangible and evidence-based information into portfolio monitoring; allowing you to prioritise and deploy maintenance efficiently, no matter where you are.


add value to your platform

Give your end-users an additional layer of valuable insight by offering up-to-date satellite imagery within your construction management software, CAD program, or data intelligence tool. Whether the imagery is used to accompany progress reports, assist macro-analysis for business intelligence or support micro-analysis of individual sites, Bird.i’s imagery has a wealth of applications and can be integrated with your existing systems via API.


detect new sites automatically

Bird.i has designed and developed proprietary Artificial Intelligence models to automatically detect new construction projects and completed projects within earth observation imagery, allowing our customers to perform large scale trend analysis, as well as identify individual new projects for their own systems and products.
