Geo-referenced Spatial Multimedia Application

There has always been a gap between map features and representation and visualisation in GIS maps.

This gap is now being filled by spatial multimedia. Spatial Multimedia brings geo-referenced video multimedia and digital, interactive mapping capabilities to the desktop of the planning professionals.

Transportation planners and other environmental agencies face enormous challenges in monitoring and interpreting traffic situations on daily basis. The implementation of Spatial Multimedia Applications with geo-referenced video images is seen as key to meeting these challenges.

The ability to visually explore and navigate these dynamic scenarios through video imagery is an important function of Spatial Multimedia. Hence, the use of Video mapping or geo-referencing in Spatial Multimedia applications has become vital in the representation and visualisation of planning scenarios, especially in traffic situations. 

It has recently become a lucrative component of the mapping industry because of its ability to extend the cognitive abilities of planners and enhance consensus on issues amongst and across levels of decision makers.

It doesn't stop there though. Spatial Multimedia can be used across an array of sectors including:


Municipalities for managing its civic amenities in many cities. The application of Spatial Multimedia would be highly useful for this purpose.
  • Asset inventory
  • Maintenance planning
  • Quality assurance


Water, Sewer, Gas pipeline and electric utilities have started using Spatial Multimedia technologies for the operation, management, and servicing of assets.

From Drone to the Field

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are becoming the go to technology in the mapping business for collecting aerial imagery.

UAVs have quickly become a truly disruptive technology in the geospatial industry. The ability to quickly send an inexpensive and flexible platform of sensors into the air to survey your surroundings, and receive near real time feedback, has opened the door to countless opportunities for data collection and analytics.

We see UAV technology as a major opportunity to enhance both the efficiency and the quality of data collected in the field. In order to keep ahead of this technology, our development team have spent some time over the past few weeks looking into how RouteShoot can support the ever growing file formats produced by UAV's.

The processes are still in development, but we’re making considerable progress in showcasing how readily UAV-based imagery can be deployed on the ground in real-world scenarios for various operations.
