Characteristics and Recommended Use

The Swimming Pool AI Layer (and associated information summarised in AI Parcels) is exceptionally high quality. Edges (and therefore the area estimate) for unobscured pools are highly accurate. Pools are successfully captured under highly challenging conditions – covers, shadow, shade cloth and trees.

When we state there is a swimming pool in a parcel, the vast majority of incorrect cases are either parcel errors (the Swimming Pool actually lies in the neighbouring property), or small, round trampolines that look very similar to small, round above ground pools with a black cover. Similarly, the missed pools are almost exclusively either small, round above ground swimming pools that are less than 10m2 (covered, or in extremely poor state of repair), or parcel errors, where the pool is detected as being in the neighbouring property.
