POINT GREY GIS CAMERAS

Since the introduction of the internet and the digital revolution, geographical information systems are a growing and highly profitable industry. Companies like Google have gained particular notice by developing Streetview, a capability which allows Google map users to zoom into a street level view of a neighborhood. Similarly, municipalities and larger property investors are relying on camera images, captured from a moving vehicle, to register key assets such as road signs, building locations and road features.

Point Grey spherical cameras provide customers with a complete solution which incorporates all aspects of a 360° imaging system. This approach reduces time to market while minimizing development efforts. Cameras are pre-calibrated with 6 sensors and include a software package that manages the image acquisition, real-time processing, and image stitching needed to create a single panoramic snapshot. Users that demand a customized solution can develop the spherical camera system on their own by integrating multiple single sensor cameras and using Point Grey's software development kit to manage image acquisition and stitching.
