Announcing Expanded Features

RouteShoot sees the release of some brand new features. The entire RouteShoot team has remained focused and operated with purpose over the past year to bring you some highly powerful features!

Route List:
In the top left hand corner of the journal map you will notice there is a 'route list'. By clicking the drop down menu this will allow you to quickly select from a list of routes that have been randomly colour coordinated for visual ease.

When selected, the rotate feature orientates the map so that the direction of travel is always upwards. 

Measuring Tool:
Use the measuring tool to draw a line or polygon on the map to determine the geographic length or area.

We’re blown away by how RouteShoot has grown recently and we’re excited to evolve it even further in the coming year.

RouteShoot - Geo-referenced Video For Everyone

Video capture has historically been costly, requiring dedicated cameras and hardware. In order to conduct roadway alignment surveys, or construction site reviews using video documentation, it involved loaning out extremely expensive equipment to surveyors, then waiting to pull together the data manually in the back-office for review.

Using consumer-grade hardware (like Android devices or iPhones), teams can use the device they carry everywhere to document quick clips, or mount the device in their vehicle to drive the length of a road widening project, then sync everything they’ve captured up to the centralised cloud account for management and review. RouteShoot even has an option to record the audio track with the video, so an inspector can make voice annotations and comments as they’re walking a construction site or a facility inspection.

Within the RouteShoot iOS and Android apps, you also have total control over video quality, both resolution and frame rate. Based on your needs, being able to adjust quality gives you a way to manage file sizes and storage.

Along with the GPS location track, our video recorder also logs the heading, time, speed, distance, and even the altitude. 

Combined with high-resolution imagery, this allows you to identify buildings, road signs, poles, and lots more right from the imagery as you’re scrubbing through your collected video. 

With high definition video, pausing the clip gives you nice crisp frames for picking out features.

Check out the 'Edition Comparison' page to see which plan is right for you to get started using video capture. Also grab the latest updates to the iOS or Android app to get access from mobile, including a host of other new features.
