Digital Twins.

Data you can use.
Digital twins are changing the way facilities, cities, even entire counties approach the management of infrastructure and environment.

Sanborn pioneers the digital twin base map.

How digital twins are created.

Sanborn creates its Digital Twin models using a combination of remote sensing data, high-quality aerial photography, and advanced machine learning algorithms that can detect and model everything from buildings and streets to vegetation and topography. Our approach is scalable to facilities, campuses, cities or regional modeling.

Create your own digital twin.


How to work with Digital Twin Models.

Digital twins can be viewed using 3D GIS (Geographic Information Systems) such as Esri, and computer aided design (CAD), as well as other software used in gaming and viewing. The Digital Twin data can be combined with other data modeling systems to simulate energy and water consumption, analyze thermal and other emissions, simulate traffic flows and pedestrian movement, and analyze areas at risk from natural disasters.

Sanborn Quick-Est ®.

Sanborn Quick-Est® is a capability that can be used to calculate the area of a plot of land or rooftop, or other feature type, from high resolution imagery and other forms of geospatial data. The Quick-Est modeling capability is in part based on a Sanborn-patented process for generating 3D models. With Quick-Est, your field teams and GIS analysts can make rapid calculations that will streamline their spatial analysis and speed up their workflows.
