Draw 2D polygons, and Giraffe creates 3D masses using the number of floors and floor-to-floor height as the drivers. It is simple and effective.
Automatically turn simple shapes into more complex geometry with built-in algorithms. Create road networks, car parking, apartment floor plans, structural grids, and more - with just a few clicks!
Work in tandem with your remote team as if you were drawing on the same sheet of paper. No more asking someone to “move that building to the right.” Now you can jump in and co-author any design.
Data driven decisions
Contextualize success. Host, style, and share map data easily. Add filters and tools to bring your data alive.
A world of knowledge. Connect to any geodatabase, internal or external, effortlessly. Giraffe handles the authentication.
Nimble Calculations. Define and share quantitative analytics with a low-code, spreadsheet-like syntax.
Extensible capability. Use the SDK to build beautiful custom apps, in hours.
Geospatial Data Library
Bring together all your geospatial data into a single pane of glass. Giraffe has connections to thousands of free GIS layers, and you can add your own.
Advanced GIS functions
Set your CRS, see the metadata of every geometry, connect to Mapservers, Featureservers and more. Intelligent search capabilities allow you to filter through all the vector data in your library.
Import and export data simply. Giraffe uses an open data format, GeoJSON, allowing maximum flexibility between platforms either via export or programmatically via API.
The SDK exposes the Giraffe data model to you using React context. Create a component, and you're off! Build apps, widgets, and workflows for your organization, local context, or for the world to use.
Giraffe is built API first, and with our client SDK you can leverage our own APIs. We have the usual endpoints for projects, layers and geometry. There are also endpoints that export different GIS and 3D formats
