Getting to the Heart of On-Demand Processing

A sample of Arturo’s property analytics features. Our API gives unprecedented access to the latest possible property analytics data from the most up-to-date imagery available. As our machine learning services take just seconds to make a feature prediction, we’re able to offer our entire feature set on-demand — responding on average in less than five seconds.

Top-level features

  • The first step is a combination of address normalization and geocoding, which takes an address like `1747 grey avenue, 60201` and yields a normalized address (e.g. `1747 Grey Ave, Evanston, IL 60201, USA`) and coordinates (e.g. `lat: 42.0501356, lng: -87.702193`).
  • Translating address coordinates to a geo-referenced parcel is also part of the process, providing the full extent of a property.
  • Now we know the area or place on the globe we are looking for. We then fetch imagery from various satellite and aerial 3rd-Party Data Providers, and pass them directly to our ML Models, which indicate, for example, where there are buildings in the images.
  • For some customers, it’s enough to return a simple building count or highlight the buildings in an image. Others require georeferenced objects or property characteristics in some standard format (e.g. GeoJSON), which we derive from image metadata.

Gathering 3rd-party data

  • Coverage: what percentage of our locations of interest are covered?
  • Latency: what’s the p50, p75, p99?
  • Volume: how many requests per time period is supported? How volatile can our request volume be?
  • Uptime: how many 9s do they guarantee?

Making predictions

A satellite image overlaid by a fire zone mask. Fire zones identify vegetation density within 50, 100, and 200 ft from the primary building of interest. The building is centered in blue, vegetation is highlighted in green, and fire zones are in red.
The same satellite image overlaid by a roof segmentation mask. Roof pixels are highlighted in white.
