LineVision PLS-CADD

LineVision PLS-CADD is the only “vendor-independent” GPS video extension for PLS-CADD and the only one that is designed to support both aerial helicopter, UAV and ground-based visual inspections. LineVision PLS-CADD will allow you to click on a structure or specific point along your ROW asset corridor in PLS-CADD, and then easily review color (EO), Infrared (IR), corona (UV) video and oblique photos geographically associated with that point.

This easy-to-use software is the most “open” and versatile PLS-CADD geospatial video analysis extention 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.
