Mobile Mapping

Mobile Mapping is the process of collecting geospatial data from a mobile vehicle (e.g. car, quad, boat, train, drone or aircraft). It's a fast way to collect up-to-date data on a large scale, in less time. Mobile Mapping is typically fitted with a range of 360° and HR video, photos or any number of remote sensing systems. The primary output from such system includes mostly GIS data, digital maps and georeferenced images and video.

In just four simple steps


Through experience, we gathered and developed a great deal of know-how on registering the public space. Knowledge we use to keep our Mobile Mapping software at the highest level.

We combine high-accuracy GPS/INS with 360°, High-resolution and Infrared cameras.

Creating a setup for rapid update of public space, such as efficient road conditions surveys, asset management, automatic detection of road markings, traffic signs and lamp posts.

This will help you focus on assessing areas and roadsides that require maintenance. The productivity of inspections increases significantly, as you can cover a much larger area in less time.

Explore the four simple steps of our Horus Geo suite (Recording, Processing, Analyzing & Sharing)

1. Stack & Connect

with the Horus Recorder Builder

Starting a recording session only takes a few minutes. Our Mobile Mapping software can work on a variety of systems, either on the road, on the water or in the air. Set up the camera, choose your configuration and press Start.

Just drag, drop and connect the hardware with the Horus Recorder Builder, and the software will take care of everything.

2. Process

Create and Process your own scenes

The Horus Movie Maker can be used to edit the recordings, select the useful footage and to cut out sections that aren't needed.

You can export the recordings in several formats (MP4 or AVI), or export the video as photos (JPEG, BMP, PNG). If you have recorded GPS data, you will be able to export photos for any number of linear meters (e.g. a photo for every 5 meters).

The Horus Position Fixer can be used to correct the recordings. Use the Horus Position Fixer to post-process the GPS data based on Virtual Reference Stations to improve accuracy.

The Horus scene Builder can be used to create your own stitch, blending, cropping and distortion. Minimal light conditions? A camera was off-position? It will be no problem for the Scene Builder to correct it!

3. Analyse your assets

with the Horus Movie Player

Watch georeferenced video, zoom in or navigate on the map. The Horus Movie Player is a free software application to view and play Horus video. Use the Layer Manager module to project GIS/CAD data in georeferenced video and on the map, and add or update geometries. Check your topography, assets and adjust the geometry.

Create Geotiff files out of street-level imagery. Create High-resolution "Aerial Photos" based on your recordings, our software will do the ortho-projection.

4. Share your data and projects

Use the Horus Webplayer to publish and share your panoramic data on the web, combined with spatial data. Organize your recordings and share them with project members in or outside of your organization. The Horus Webplayer features a built-in security store, controlling access to our recording through account-based access.

Integrate your web services in the Webplayer, or maintain your assets using the Webplayer's edit capabilities. You'll even be able to integrate the Horus Webplayer in your own existing web application using the Webplayer API.
