Augmented reality mapping (plus other tools) to make your job easier

Utility Inspection & Survey

Just imagine not having the tedious effort of working with thousands of digital images from a DSLR or trying to manually control the camera to stay over the line! Churchill Navigation’s Augmented Reality Mapping System (ARS) can display the route of natural gas pipelines, power lines, or any other utility line over live video. Let ARS automatically steer the camera along the line as you look for hazards. And even when the line is buried, ARS knows exactly where your camera should be looking.

Automatic camera steering comes as a standard feature in ARS.



Wildlife Management

By recording fully georeferenced video, ARS can allow you to export highly accurate shapefiles indicating the time and  position of each animal identified. Other products can only record where the camera is located not where it is looking. Combined with our Ground Control Station, post-mission analysis and reporting is accomplished in significantly less time and effort.

Identify and name locations with point-point accuracy and instantly convert to numerous coordinate systems.
