Any user can download the Ubipix App for iPhone or Android devices and start recording, tagging and sharing spatially encoded imagery or video clips.
Georeferenced video and imagery allows the cataloguing or indexing of photos and videos according to location (e.g. GPS coordinates).
Videos and imagery are very often an integral part of the data collection process during field surveys. They can be used to record and identify hazards and defects along infrastructural networks such as roads and pipelines. However, following a site visit or inspection, engineers can spend hours trawling through non-referenced video and photos to identify features of interest or concern.
Georeferenced video and imagery can eliminate this time-intensive activity and can immediately identify the exact location of where the photo or video frame relates to. This geo-spatial information is highly efficient and effective to teams who:
Using local knowledge for problem evaluation and reporting is far from ideal, particularly if staff turnover is high and projects are in unfamiliar jurisdictions. In these situations teams require accurate geo-spatial information that can be viewed and shared by all team members. Ubipix is a platform that enables georeferenced video and images to be recorded, uploaded, analysed and shared online. Engineers can make tags in the field during their inspection to record the precise location of problems identified in the network. Back at the desk these videos are viewed in the Ubipix platform alongside an interactive map with the user’s pre-selected tags. This eliminates the need for engineers to review hours of video unnecessarily and also allows new tags to be made and edited. The videos, maps and tags can be easily and securely shared with colleagues, reviewers, and contractors anywhere in the world. In fact, Ubipix can serve as a data repository for entire company collections of georeferenced video and imagery.Our aim is to remove the complexity out of capturing, sharing and storing georeferenced video and imagery, to allow it to be used as a standard tool in infrastructure and risk management, as well as social applications.
