Project overview

Assess and enhance road infrastructure data quality at scale using big data and artificial intelligence

The cost to assess road infrastructure can be prohibitive from ground-truth collection and could take up
to two years to cover 25,000 km.

Alteia collaborated with World Bank Group to develop a software application on top of the Aether platform to help extract accurate insights from road networks at scale in developing countries based on freely accessible data.


less costly
