UK: BAE Systems has unveiled a new mobile app that can be used with Google Glass for hands-free geospatial intelligence data collection and photo reporting from anywhere in the field. The GXP Xplorer Snap app can transform Google Glass devices, smartphones, and tablets into crowd-sourced information gathering tools capable of generating photo reports that can be shared across an organisation. The report is automatically geotagged, time-stamped, and uploaded to a GXP Xplorer server, where it is immediately shared and accessible to the rest of the enterprise.
The GXP Xplorer Snap mobile app is scheduled to be released for Google Glass later this year. A similar version of the app, compatible with iOS and Android devices, is already available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play marketplace. The app was showcased with Google Glass at the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s annual GEOINT Symposium.
