Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, has announced that it is partnering with BuildingFootprintUSA to provide unprecedented, accurate geocoding and address matching to users of Esri’s ArcGIS platform in the United States and Canada, as well as a comprehensive training dataset used to improve Esri’s machine learning and artificial intelligence. Users in any industry—including government, telecom, insurance, utilities, real estate, and retail—can benefit from the increased geocoding accuracy that comes from using building footprints. Building footprints for the United States and Canada will be available for use by ArcGIS users by the end of the year, closely followed by data for the United Kingdom and Brazil. Esri will also provide the data for advanced geocoding needs through ArcGIS World Geocoding Service, StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS North America, and ArcGIS World Geocoder. The data will be available to all ArcGIS users for no additional cost and can be discovered in the Living Atlas of the World.
