Ecopia AI And Hexagon Partner To Create 3D Nationwide Landcover Across The USA

Ecopia AI announced a partnership with Hexagon’s Geosystems division to create a high-precision 3D vector map of the entire United States derived from 6” and 12” resolution stereo aerial imagery. The resulting map, 3D Nationwide Landcover, will offer a highly accurate digital representation of every building, road, bridge, railway, driveway, sidewalk, parking lot, swimming pool, sports field, waterbody, forest, grassland, bare land, and paved area – across the entire country, and all with the accuracy of a GIS professional. Ecopia’s 3D Nationwide Landcover will be made readily available as an off-the-shelf product, offering highly accurate foundational data for critical decision-making applications including flood modelling & stormwater analysis, insurance risk assessment, and transportation engineering.

Hexagon‘s HxGN Content Program offers the largest commercially available source of high-resolution aerial imagery across the US. This imagery will serve as the input data to Ecopia’s artificial intelligence systems, which will rapidly process the imagery and output a highly accurate digital map of the entire country. Further, as the HxGN Content Program imagery is refreshed on a regular schedule, Ecopia will maintain the 3D Nationwide Landcover product – offering timely change detection and updates at a national scale.

“Ecopia’s 3D Nationwide Landcover offers a next-generation digital infrastructure for decision-making applications across the United States,” said Jon Lipinski, Co-Founder & President of Ecopia. “The combination of Hexagon’s high-resolution aerial image content and Ecopia’s proprietary AI affords the unique capability to create a national dataset of unparalleled accuracy.”

“Hexagon is proud to partner with Ecopia to support this high-accuracy national dataset, which will be produced in an unprecedented timeline,” said John Welter, President, Geospatial Content Solutions at Hexagon. “This partnership highlights the strength of the HxGN Content Program in offering large-scale high-resolution aerial imagery of the highest possible positional accuracy and consistency, enabling high-value use cases across industries.”
