What can I measure with SiteRecon?
You can measure standard features such as surface area of turf, beds, sidewalks, parking lots, length of soft edges and hard edges, count of trees and palm trees.
- This is the list of 23 property features you can measure on SiteRecon: https://www.notion.so/Types-of-feature-731dc79b05404a0fa4e153efcf722d6b
- Higher-order features such as surface area of shrubs, slop of turf and height of trees are measured on request.
What will the delivery time look like?
Depends on the size of the property, the number of features to be measured and the volume of order traffic. In case the system is not swamped with measurements (>95% of the time), you can expect to get back the measurements within -
- 30 minutes for a residential property where you need turf area.
- 5 hours for a 10 acre property with turf, beds, trees, sidewalks and parking lot measurements.
Why does it take 30 minutes to do turf on a residential site? Because someone in our team always eyeballs the measurements extracted by the computer algorithm from aerial imagery to make sure that the data created is accurate.
How accurate is it?
- Map outlines are accurate within 7 cm of their actual position on the ground. Measurement numbers are extracted using these map outlines.
- You can get similar accuracy from a property survey is someone moves the measuring wheel exactly along the boundary of the parking lot on the property. And then repeat the exercise of turf, beds and all other features that you measure
SiteRecon users have verified the measurements through site visits and you can see their testimonial in the case study videos.
How does SiteRecon handle a property covered by trees?
SiteRecon combines different sources of imagery to get the most complete picture of the site -
- Leaf-off imagery collected during winters to see through tree canopies
- Street imagery to get a view from ground
The above sources are combined with the latest high resolution aerial imagery of the site to extract measurements.
Can SiteRecon measure a property that was recently constructed?
Yes. SiteRecon access the best-in-class aerial imagery from Nearmap to extract measurements. Nearmap imagery is collected over 700 cities within the last 1-9 months. The collection frequency depends on how big your city is. The bigger the city, the higher the collection frequency.

Our company does not have a lot of volume of property measurements, will I benefit from it?
Even if you have 50 properties to measure every year, those are 50 opportunities to have smarter pre-bid conversation with prospects, qualify leads faster, increase closing rates and optimally allocate sales reps’ time that you will miss out on if you continue with the old way of measuring properties.
You have only paid for the software subscription. You haven’t paid the real cost of using it - the cost of time invested into measuring properties and the missed opportunity to have smarter pre-bid conversation with prospects, qualify leads faster, increase closing rates and optimally allocate sales reps’ time that you will miss out on if you continue with the old way of measuring properties.
