Remote GeoSystem has released LineVision Google Earth, an application that leverages Google Earth for multi-channel, “track-based” geographic video playback, analysis and project editing.

LineVision Google Earth enables users to geospatially “navigate” a video recording by clicking a location along the aerial or terrestrial GPS track positioned in Google Earth. The video then automatically advances to that point in the video so that analysts and subject matter experts can visually interpret what was recorded at that specific place and time. As the video plays, a “cursor” moves along the GPS track, constantly indicating where the current view was recorded. If something of interest is detected in the video, users may also “snap” a still image from the video, which is geotagged and saved for future analysis.

Operators of modern multiple-sensor gimbal cameras and mobile video mapping platforms can synchronize playback of up to four simultaneously collected geospatial video files.

In addition to video, LineVision Google Earth also supports geospatial positioning of still photos, audio, waypoint notes and pipeline leak detection system (LDS) data.

All these data types can be combined and saved as a .geoSolution project file for easy restoration and collaboration over a local network or on the same computer. Alternatively, users can package projects as a .rgs “Pack & Go” file for ultimate data portability and simple delivery to clients and end-users. LineVision Google Earth can also be customized to package projects in specific formats for later use in third-party systems.

Applications include:

  • Power Line and Pipeline Inspections
  • UAS and Terrestrial Unmanned Systems 
  • Aerial LiDAR and Mobile Mapping Projects
  • Border Security and Narcotics Interdiction
  • Road and Railway Corridor Assessment 
  • Humanitarian and Emergency Response
  • Military Mission Planning and Review
