LineVision Drone Video and GIS Data Management Solutions
Commercial drone data management is more than just making static maps and uploading pictures to the cloud. Professional drone operators need a user-friendly method to search, analyze, report, collaborate and share georeferenced video, photos, files and maps using existing GIS platforms.
No other company offers UAV operators more options to turn drone video and photo inspection data into dynamic, map-based reports that easily adapt to existing workflows and integrate with enterprise GIS software.
Our LineVision™ desktop and web-based Cloud/Server software are the ideal complement to any UAV inspection project, giving operators at any skill level the ability to create geospatial deliverables for Electric Utilities, Oil & Gas, Environmental, Real Estate, Insurance, Security and other Drone Video Recording Applications.

General LineVision FAQ
In the DJI Go App, choose the MENU option on the right side of the screen for Images and Video. Choose the Video icon and change file type from .MOV the default to .MP4. Choose the Option tool icon and TURN ON Video Caption. That option needs to be ON for the .SRT files to be saved with the .MP4 on your SD Card when you record during a flight.
Please note: you must have a DJI model that properly logs the GPS as an SRT file.
Do you have a published standard CSV format so I can be sure my geospatial video GPS data companion files are compatible with LineVision?
Yes. LineVision accepts many different GPS Data companion file types and to make it easy we have a published very simple CSV spec for LineVision.
The format is as follows:
The 1st row MUST be the following:
LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, ALTITUDE, UTCTIME, SPEED, COURSE
From there, each additional row just needs to be the corresponding values.
You can download the Simple CSV file format example by clicking on the document title below.
How can I share the videos I will make with LineVision with my clients? Will they also have to buy the LineVision software to view my content?
The geoProject format is the ideal way to deliver an interactive and immersive deliverable to your client. (Click here for more on geoProjects.)
However, to offer that type of functionality, requires software as there are millions of lines of code behind the scene that make that all work together.
If you are using the Remote GeoSystems geoProject format for the deliverable, then your client will need some sort of version of LineVision Basic edition or higher to view the save geoProject deliverable.
Since we do offer the monthly plans, so you could subscribe for your client and turn off their subscription for the months that its is not being used.
Alternatively you could create screen capture of the LineVision running if you just needed to send your client a movie. There are also the automated reports that be be exported in Excel and Word file formats as well as mission plans that can be exported as KML files. But again, the map interactivity with video requires the LineVision software currently.
Can I save files or projects so that users do not have to manually select and add the videos, photos and other files needed to view a project?
Yes. You can save your project as a geoProject. That way end user only needs to open the geoProject, view and interact with the project deliverable as you last saved it.
To load a single geotagged video to LineVision go to File > Open Video then navigate to Windows folder where you downloaded the geotagged video AND GPS “companion” or “sidecar” files. This should load up the video and play with the clickable GPS track on the map.

The perpetual and includes free updates for the first year and an optional 20% annually for upgrades in year 2 and beyond. Click here to see our pricing plans.
The geoDVR typically runs independently of the leak detection system. There are NO proprietary technology integrations or specialized post-processing services required! After the data collection step, the LDS operator and/or analysts simply import the data into our LineVision post-inspection reporting software for analysis and deliverable creation.
We can modify LineVision to support data directly from most LDS manufacturers. We have worked with data from the Boreal Laser and Pergam LDS systems can usually add support for most other systems as well. Please let us know if you have some other specific direct integration requirements, it’s likely our professional service team could help devise a solution.
I need to be able to show video and my flight route on a Google Map or Google Earth in real time as the video plays. Is this something your software can do?
Yes – Our LineVision software allows you to view video files with continuous GPS coordinates a map for dynamic an interactive playback along a flight route. The LineVision Google Earth Extension lets you do this with Google Earth and our LineVision Desktop lets you do this with Esri ArcGIS Maps.
We use DJI drones for survey and inspection and want to overlay or embed kmz files, shapefiles, any line work into the video. Will LineVision support this?
Yes – with some DJI models, and LineVision Desktop – Ultimate, you can use the data from the DJI Fight Record log TXT file to geotag the video so that an approximation of the “camera-target-footprint” shows on the map with this data. You can then enable the map overlay. But again remember this is really an approximation. Unlike the aircraft gimbal systems, the DJI’s do not have a laser rangefinder to get LineVision all the ideal metadata parameters to get the 4-corner information really accurate. Also at this time you cannot export a video file with the video overlaid, the client will at least need the LineVision Desktop – Basic edition to view the data overlaid on the video.
Also, all versions of LineVision also allow you and clients to video player synced with a moving map flight route and data side by side.
