About us

More than a data provider

Rock.estate is a Belgian data science startup, founded in 2017 by Kasper Van Lombeek (founder) together with Mathieu Carette and Pietjan Vandooren (co-founders).

We specialize in the remote and real-time evaluation of buildings on a country-wide scale to help companies understand their customers' houses. Through a combination of open geodata and AI, Rock.estate extracts and calculates relevant building information for any address (currently in Belgium) such as accurate 3D models, a wide range of building characteristics and different valuations.

Our building data enables our customers to save time and make better decisions.

What we stand for

Continuous improvement and innovation

We constantly improve our real estate data by adding new characteristics, optimising the quality of existing ones, and expanding our geographical coverage. R&D takes a central role in our product development where we rely on the latest techniques in the field of data science and artificial intelligence.

A solution provider rather than just a data provider

We go beyond “simply” providing data to our customers. We focus on the problem our customers have and the added value Rock.estate’s building data can play as part of the solution.

Plug-and-play where possible, tailor-made where needed

Our API, with its various reference implementations, is easy to use and lets our customers integrate our real estate data into their application. We help every customer navigate towards the most optimal implementation of our solution.

Geodata as key ingredient

We use geodata, which is every form of information with a spatial dimension (having an X, Y, and sometimes also a Z coordinate)

Extracting building information

After cleaning and structuring the geodata, we apply artificial intelligence on this aggregated dataset to extract building information up to a surprisingly high level of detail

Focus on open data

We focus on open data which is publicly available and free to use. This offers a high degree of transparency concerning the source of our product and has the benefit of being GDPR-compliant.

Towards more data (regulation)

The European Union encourages its member states to open up (PSI directive) and harmonize (INSPIRE directive) their data. We are merely at the beginning of a real revolution where an increasing number of applications will make smart use of these available open data sources, both in the public and the private sector.

Our team

Our team combines expertise in the field of data science and AI with extensive in-the-field experience working for large financial institutions and energy providers. We understand your challenges and can help you.
