Geospatial DVR for Airborne Pipeline Patrol
Regulatory agencies require oil, gas & chemical pipeline operators to conduct periodic aerial pipeline patrol and inspection flights to detect risks to both the system and general public. The prospects of natural disasters, security threats and product theft require even greater pipeline monitoring diligence.
Video is rapidly becoming a default method for documenting current conditions along a pipeline ROW. By adding GPS and time data to the video, specialists and end-users can have access to video frames by clicking on a flight track on a map.
Aerial pipeline patrol operations use our industry-leading geoDVR™ airborne video recorder to geotag video from multiple cameras & sensors for routine patrols and comprehensive leak detection and right-of-way integrity surveys.
- Record and geotag up to 4 HD & SD videos with one recorder
- GPS data is permanently embedded in the video to survive editing
- Add waypoints with point of interest (POI) descriptions for anomalies
- View pipeline SHP & KML files on real-time moving maps
- And much more
Mapping Software for Airborne Pipeline Inspection Reporting
Post-mission, pipeline integrity specialists and GIS analysts use our LineVision™ video mapping and gas leak data software solutions to help them drastically reduce the post-flight mapping and reporting process using the geoProject™ reporting method.
Whether you are using just a hand-held FLIR, fixed-mount cameras or an aircraft-mounted gimbal sensor, we have solutions that enable companies, vendors and other stakeholders to view and share this data throughout their workflows using existing GIS mapping systems like the Esri ArcGIS platform and Google Earth.
Pipeline Gas Leak Detection System Integration
Are you considering adding an aircraft gas leak detector to your pipeline inspection services? Remote GeoSystems can also incorporate data from specialized airborne gas leak detection system manufacturers into our LineVision geospatial video, photo and media mapping software. Remote GeoSystems, along with our LDS partners can offer you a complete solution from data collection hardware to GIS map-based reporting and archive solutions.
LineVision Desktop & Google Earth Extension can support the following leak detection systems:
- Boreal Laser GasFinderAB
- Pergam Suisse ALMA
- Others as needed (Contact us to learn more)
