LineVision Desktop Software

LineVision Desktop™ is a “stand-alone” suite of software applications that leverages Esri® ArcGIS mapping technology to map, analyze and then create immersive and interactive as well as traditional reports with geotagged videos, photos, annotations, documents, shapefiles, aerial imagery as well as other enterprise GIS data sources.

This easy-to-use software is one of the most “open” and versatile geospatial video analysis tools available. Easily playback properly formatted geo-referenced video files from a variety of consumer video cameras, drones, gyro-stabilized video systems and specialized geospatial DVRs, including our own geoDVR hardware

Now even those without GIS experience can easily view this valuable asset location-based multimedia using enterprise maps and imagery data provided by ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Enterprise and/or ArcGIS Online.

    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.

    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:

  • Column 1: Latitude
  • Column 2: Longitude
  • Column 3: Altitude
  • Column 4: UTC Time
  • Column 5: Speed
  • Column 6: Course

  • The 1st row MUST be the following:


    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.

    At this time, LineVision is only available for Microsoft Windows (7 or later).

    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.

    This can be any of the following LineVision versions: LineVision Google Earth Extension, LineVision Desktop, LineVision Esri ArcMap Add-in or LineVision Online for Enterprise.

    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.

    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. Check out this short tutorial:
    LineVision Desktop, Add-ins, Extensions and Plug-in software is currently licensed to a specific PC as a monthly, annual or perpetual license plan. 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.

    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.
