isWhere 3.1.0: Geotagged Imagery- Easy viewing on Google Earth, Fast Processing

Fort Collins, CORed Hen Systems (RHS), LLC, today announced a new release, isWhere 3.1.0, a media mapping add-on tool for viewing geotagged imagery on Google Earth™. isWhere 3.1.0 is for professionals and enthusiasts who want a quick, straightforward, affordable way to view, analyze, compare and organize geotagged videos and their corresponding track logs.

 

New Features

The decoding and capture speed of isWhere 3.1.0 has increased ten-fold. Its georeferencing capabilities have expanded to include text files and image files. Perhaps the biggest breakthrough is that now anyone with a camera and a GPX logger can view their video track on Google Earth using this tool. isWhere 3.1.0:

  • Decodes geospatial enabled media 10X times faster than earlier versions
  • Captures frames 10X faster than with previous versions
  • Georeferences.doc, .docx, .pdf and all other text files
  • Georeferences tagged image file format (.tiff)
  • Displays videos with GPS Exchange Format(.gpx) overlay companion files for Garmin VIRB cameras

"Our reasons for adding these significant features are twofold," Director of Software Engineering Bogdan Besfamylnyy said. "We want to improve the user experience by accommodating more file formats and make decoding GEM videos and extracting frames faster," Besfamylnyy said.

 

"We also want to put isWhere into the hands of those who want to use our tools with video taken with action cameras, or, cameras from manufacturers who output georeferenced companion files with captured video."

 

Interpreting Geotagged Imagery for the Novice

Increasingly, professionals without GIS experience or training interpret geotagged imagery as part of their job. They need to see videos of locations, patrols, surveys and audits from their desktop and may not want to call on the GIS Department, purchase an ESRI license, or spend a significant amount of time learning a complex mapping program. For them, simple and economical is best.

 

"Nearly everyone uses Google Earth™. isWhere 3.1.0 gives them a viewing tool so they can see what they need to see on a platform they already understand," Besfamylnyy said.
