Live views enable visual verification within Geographical Information Systems (GIS)


New York, November 12, 2023 -- EarthCam, the leader in live camera technology, content and services, today announced its integration with Esri® ArcGIS Online®, the popular Geographical Information Systems (GIS) platform, at Autodesk University. EarthCam’s live camera views deliver a new level of location intelligence direct to GIS maps. With EarthCam’s integration, users can immediately access high-quality, live-streaming views of mapped locations together with many layers of contextual data, making real-time collaboration easy.

EarthCam’s camera streams are now easily mapped to each precise location in ArcGIS, providing a richer perspective of the surrounding environment. Live cameras have many important geospatial use-cases to visualize data layers, such as active construction, climate change, crime and many more. Real-time video powerfully augments GIS for governmental projects, virtual tourism, ecological studies and scientific research.

“Adding live video to GIS metadata revolutionizes perspectives within interactive maps,” said Bill Sharp, SVP Product Development & Strategy. “This combination of geography with up-to-the-minute visual data delivers unique insights utilizing EarthCam’s gigapixel panoramas, 8K imagery and epic time-lapse capabilities.”
