Remote GeoSystems Releases Aerial and Mobile Video Inspection Projects

Fort Collins, Colo. - Remote GeoSystems, Inc. announces the release of LineVision Google Earth - a stand-alone application leveraging Google Earth for simple, multi-channel, "track-based" geographic video playback, analysis and project editing.

LineVision Google Earth enables users to geospatially "navigate" a video recording by simply clicking a location along the aerial or terrestrial GPS track positioned in Google Earth. The video then automatically advances to that point in the video so that analysts and subject matter experts can visually interpret what was recoded at that specific place and time. As the video plays, a "cursor" moves along the GPS track, constantly indicating where the current view was recorded. If something of interest is detected in the video, users may also "snap" a still image from the video, which is geotagged and saved for future analysis.
