US: Esri has released the latest version of ArcGIS Full Motion Video on Friday. The new video presents capabilities to improve the way analysts and managers interact with videos. ArcGIS FMV allows users to view, organise, and analyse video from drones and other collection platforms. It offers full support for JP2, and TIFF support for video mosaics including full image transformations for better accuracy.
A new search tool makes it easier to find video segments based on location, time, and selected features. The previous version of ArcGIS FMV included a multiplexer tool that allowed users to transform non-MISB format videos, such as from UAVs or drones, into MISB-compliant videos compatible with the FMV add-in.
“ArcGIS FMV expands the capabilities of ArcGIS as a complete, professional platform for managing, sharing, and extracting value from geospatial data,” said Gerald Kinn, Esri’s lead product engineer for imagery. “Imagery from video is one of the most important sources of data in ArcGIS.”
“ArcGIS FMV tools add a dimension to our remote sensing analysis not previously possible,” said Verne LaClair, general manager for Vertex Geo, an Esri partner that specializes in civilian, municipal, defense, and intelligence initiatives. “The ability to map FMV content will play an important role in search-and-rescue operations, wildlife tracking and monitoring, and cinematography projects.”
