Latest ArcGIS Solution Empowers Geospatial Workflows with Advanced Video Analysis

Satellites, drones, security cameras, sensors, and more capture vast streams of imagery each day, much of it in the form of video. Yet, deriving meaningful insights from video data can be challenging and time-consuming. To help organizations that must analyze this invaluable source of information and harness the full potential of video content, Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, has launched ArcGIS Video Server for ArcGIS Enterprise. This innovative solution allows users to easily index, search, publish, and stream video services with geographic and temporal context, unlocking a wealth of information for government; public safety; utilities; and architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) entities.

“Georeferenced video is a powerful data source and is becoming relied on more and more as a form of imagery, but it can be time-consuming to process in order to derive valuable insights from,” said Rob Elkins, Esri director of product management. “Now, users can leverage this content in a modern, web-based format that’s accessible on any device and network, helping make work with maps and data faster, more accurate, and easier to understand across an organization.”

Whether conducting historical data review or intelligence analysis, ArcGIS Video Server can be paired with client applications such as ArcGIS Excalibur to provide a comprehensive solution that scales with the needs of an organization. Public works departments can deploy drones to conduct remote inspections of buildings, augmenting their workforce and mitigating employee risk. First responders can use live video streaming to monitor fires or other threats as they occur and better direct response. Construction companies can perform image classification and analysis to pinpoint suitable project sites or examine landscape change over time.
