Enabling applications to utilize extraordinary detail across a large frequency range.See project
Big Geospatial data
Analytics at scale on OpenStreetMap
A collection of tools that enable large scale analysis on massive OpenStreetMap datasets.See project
Reports & White Papers
In addition to our blogs, we've written up some of our past social impact research and the reports are here.
At Azavea, we help our clients use machine learning and satellite imagery to map places all over the world. Every project starts with the same question: what’s the newest, cheapest, and highest-resolution imagery we can find?
This report was created in partnership with the Scattergood Foundation in the second half of 2019. The goal was to better understand the landscape of children’s health across Philadelphia.
Azavea performed data analysis to calculate trail health benefits for the “Get Your Tail On the Trail” health incentive program.
This report explores how technology could be used to support the long-term systematic monitoring of urban trees, assist with tree planting and maintenance data processes, and enable data to be organized and shared.
This white paper discusses the pros and cons of using mobile augmented reality technology to display a large database of historic photographs.
This white paper ranks the ten most gerrymandered local and federal districts in the United States in 2006.
Azavea worked with partner, SciStarter, to investigate the latest developments in software, hardware and data processing capability as it applies to citizen science.
Many of our research projects came out of 10% time
Azavea has an active research and development program through which the firm invests substantial resources toward the development of new solutions, techniques and learning opportunities for our colleagues.
