Company

Cape Analytics was established in 2014  to revolutionize the way information about the built environment is created and consumed.  We leverage geospatial imagery, computer vision, and machine learning to instantly and automatically extract proprietary property data.  This data forms the basis from which we offer comprehensive data and analytics solutions delivered instantaneously via API.
Cape Analytics establishes a new category of property data & analytics, offering immediacy and coverage comparable to pre-filled data, but with the accuracy and types of features for which an underwriter or other stakeholder may otherwise seek a more costly and time-consuming inspection report.
