Horus Geo Suite
The Horus Geo Suite is a mobile mapping software suite to collect, extract and transform imagery data in order to create meaningful information from recordings. With these you will be able to map the world safer and faster, while the software introduces simplicity to decision making.
No post-processing of video data needed
Software that is easy to use and master
Work with geo-content directly, update existing data or create databases
Overview Horus Geo Suite
Below a detailed overview of the the Horus Geo Suite. Find out how you can create actionable GIS data and share this with your stakeholders.
1. Capture data
The Horus Movie Recorder is hardware agnostic. It works with all Commercial of-the-shelf (COTS) hardware. And the main function is to record all the data from the camera’s additional sensors. The Horus Movie Recorder has a simple playback function, it is merely used to check the images that have just been recorded.
Part of the Recorder is the Horus Recorder Builder. This tool is used to build a so called recording pipeline. A data stream in which camera grabbers and physical devices are connected. In the component panels you can select cameras, grabbers, components and drag and drop them in the build screen. All components that are placed in the main screen can be connected by simple drawing a line between the components you want to connect. The pipeline that is created in the main screen can be exported as a Horus Recorder Pipeline file.
The Horus Recorder Builder is linked to the Data Grabber Module. The Data Grabber Module uses the pipeline and can perform recording tasks. This data grabber can operate autonomous. The Horus Movie Recorder is the front-end application to start and stop manually.
2. Process data
The Horus Movie Maker helps you to edit your Horus data. You can export the recording to several formats (e.g. MP4, .avi) or export the video to photo’s (.jpeg, .bmp, .png). If you have recorded GPS data, you are able to export the photos for each X linear meter (e.g. every 5 meter per photo).
With the Horus Immersive Scene Builder you can positions your camera setup according map coordinates. With this module you can resize, positions, crop, blend and save camera setups for your specific recording task.
Advanced mobile mapping tasks need to post-process the recorded GPS trajectory. The Horus Position Fixer helps to re-attach the improved GPS trajectory to the imagery. The Movie Maker can be used to import existing imagery (JPEG, PGR, AVI) data

3. Extract features
The Horus Movie Player is the free downloadable software module to view and play Horus Video. Location of the video will be shown on a map. With the Horus Movie Player you can watch geo-referenced 360° and HR video, look around, zoom in and navigate on the map.
The Horus Layer Manager enables you to project your CAD and GIS data in the geo-referenced video and on the map. You can add or update geometries and attribute data. It is an easy to use software tool to do inventory and inspection tasks, very fast geotagging, several standards like SPATIALISE, DWG and SHP are supported.
With the Horus Aerial Export (Orthotool) you can create GeoTiff files out of street level imagery. This is standard approach to extract with AI solutions data from objects on the road.
With the Horus Thermal Imaging Module you can view and analyse thermal infrared images. Several multi-color filters and a temperature slider will help you to detect differences in a certain temperature range.
Horus can deliver turn key solutions of a set of thermal infrared cameras as an addition to your existing mobile mapping system of to the Horus Citymapper.
4. Share data
The Horus Web Player is a web server application to publish your streetlevel imagery on the internet. Organize your recordings and share these recordings with project members in or outside your organization. The Horus Web Player has a build-in security store, controlling access to your recordings though account-based access.
The Horus Web Player is available as on-premise software and can be installed in your public cloud.
