Android App Geotags and Maps Photos, Video and Voice Notes

FORT COLLINS, Colo., June 11, 2014—Red Hen Systems' MediaMapper Mobile is the only Android app that lets you snap a photo, record a video, make an audio note, and collect project data, while automatically geotagging it. The result? You can display the geotagged media on your screen and see its exact location on a map. Share the media with others via email or a direct upload to a server.

"MediaMapper Mobile is unique because it geotags photos as well as audio and video," said President and Founder Neil Havermale. "This easy-to-use app has the ability to geotag information and display it on a map, allowing users to analyze and respond quickly and efficiently to what is happening in the field.  It is the simplest and most affordable high-tech solution for detecting, gathering, and analyzing geospatial information."

MediaMapper Mobile offers a highly affordable ($19.99) and convenient way to collect and geotag media in the field.  The app connects wirelessly to GIS equipment to collect geotagged video, audio, and high-resolution imagery.

Using MediaMapper Mobile, gas and pipeline inspectors, pilots, and natural resource managers in the field can collect visual and audio recordings of what they see and hear along pipelines, coastlines, forests, and more. They can fill in inspection and collection forms while traveling, and gather diverse sensor data such as percent humidity, temperature, slope distance, and azimuth. GPS details about location, such as time, latitude, longitude, and altitude are viewable.

Once data collection is complete, media files can be transferred to a laptop or computer to view and analyze using Google Earth or Red Hen Systems isWhere software.  There is no need for extra equipment - MediaMapper Mobile has the necessary features to gather and record a wide variety of essential data.

This version of MediaMapper Mobile is superior to older versions because it can interface with various Bluetooth devices (GPS receivers, Laser Range Finders, Blue2CAN), collect features of interest, take sequential photos based on time and distance intervals, and control external cameras, such as GoPro, from the Android device.  Red Hen Systems added features and gave it an extensive user interface makeover to enhance its appearance and usability.

MediaMapper Mobile can be purchased at the Google Play Store for $19.99 at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.MediaMapper.Mobile.
