Real-time Video Recording Platform & Target Location Mapping
Live Moving Maps is an optional display module for the geoDVR offering airborne, vehicle and marine vessel camera operators or navigators a solution to monitor live video feeds geo-synchronized with a interactive moving map interface.
Live Moving Maps can show real-time tracking of the aircraft/vehicle position as well as any mission-related GIS map files such as critical infrastructure assets or other geo-located video subject matter.
Live Moving Maps works with simple video cameras to sophisticated multi-sensor aircraft-mounted gyro-stabilized gimbal systems.
Load Asset & Target GIS Data for Mission Planning Data Collection
The geoDVR Live Moving Maps module lets operators load and save project-specific map data files to the geoDVR Map Window.
This functionality is often used to assist in locating and documenting infrastructure assets and places such as pipelines, power line structures, cell towers, wildfire boundaries, wildlife habitats, subject locations and more.
Additionally, this makes it easy for surveyors and navigators to reference specific asset data such as powerline tower numbers or roads when recording geotagged audio/video comments of the current conditions during data collection.

geoDVR Live Moving Maps Deployment Options
Platform Location Only
Live Moving Maps by itself showing the platform location only is the most common deployment of this module for surface vehicles and aircraft using fixed-mount video cameras and legacy gimbal cameras that are unable to utilize the Remote GeoSystems Camera Target Footprint protocol or MISB FMV specifications.
With geoDVR Camera Target Footprint (CTF) Module
Live Moving Maps can optionally be configured with the geoDVR Camera Target Footprint module for gyro-stabilized gimbal cameras utilizing the Remote GeoSystems protocol. The combination of these geoDVR modules shows a dynamically-moving “camera frame center geo-target”, “camera frame extent geo-footprint” and the data-collection platform location all simultaneously in the geoDVR Live Moving Maps interface.
With geoDVR MISB FMV Metadata Module
Live Moving Maps can optionally be configured with the geoDVR MISB FMV module for gyro-stabilized gimbal cameras utilizing the STANAG Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) Full Motion Video specification. This combination of geoDVR modules presents an identical Live Moving Maps interface as described with Camera Target Footprint module, just using more limited MISB FMV specification.
Common Fields of Application
- Airborne Law Enforcement & Defense
- Pipeline Patrols & Leak Detection
- Powerline Inspections & Outage Response
- Transportation & Rail Infrastructure Surveys
- Wildfire Mapping & Airborne Firefighting
- Emergency Response and Disaster Assessment
- Aerial Wildlife Counts and Protection
- Subsea ROV & Marine Mapping Projects
- Search & Rescue Operations
- And much more!
Now airborne and mobile camera operators in any field have an easy and reliable way to monitor and report their current position in relation to where they are supposed to be for a given mission or project.
With compatible gimbal cameras, the camera target center, footprint location and aircraft position can also all be shown in the geoDVR Live Moving Maps interface.
For many commercial survey, inspection and law enforcement operations in remote areas, the geoDVR and Live Moving Maps module can be a more affordable, flexible and appropriate, alternative to more costly augmented reality systems (ARS).
