How it Works

As the video plays, a cursor moves along the GPS track on the map, constantly indicating where the current video view was captured. Simply click any point along the path to geographically “navigate the video” to that exact location. If something of interest is detected in the video, users may pause and “snap” a still image from the video, which is then geo-tagged.

User can also easily geo-tag and add documents and other files right on the map. All these imported data types can be saved in a Remote GeoSystems .geoProject file for data portability and future analysis in LineVision desktop, cloud & server software.
