Red Hen’s MediaMapper Highlighted at GEOINT Program

October 26, 2015  - By


Bruce Donaldson of Red Hen Systems LLC gave a presentation about MediaMapper Mobile, an Android app with extensive utility for ISR professionals and civilians, on a panel at the Innovative GEOINT Application Provider Program (IGAPP). IGAPP was held in St. Louis on Oct. 20. Donaldson is Red Hen’s Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) manager.

During his years of field service, Donaldson worked to address the need for Mobile Geo-Intelligence platforms that can rapidly collect, process and disseminate geospatial data and other multimedia within 24 hours of a mission.

Red_Hen_MediaMapperAt its essence, MediaMapper Mobile enables users to:

  • Geotag video, photos, audio and other notes. Annotate ground track logs. Create audio and visual notes connecting them to points of interest. Tag features from a touchscreen.
  • See track log (a.k.a breadcrumb trail). View on a map along with GPS details about location, including latitude, longitude, and altitude. Inspect media objects and other sensor streams. Share with others with XML and KML/KMZ.
  • Use with Vectronix, LTI or Trimble laser rangefinder (compass, tilt, range, calibration). Or, triangulate your location by taking two or more photos of the same object. Once the feature is identified in these images, MediaMapper Mobile will do the calculation to show you where the object was and where you were when you took the photos.
  • Configure settings for GPS devices, cameras, shuttering automations for intervalometry (time/distance).
  • Log files, manage collection projects, and complete inspection forms on site.
  • Transfer your raw multimedia data files and their track logs from your Android device to a laptop, tablet or server to view and analyze on Google Earth, Esri ArcGIS, FalconView or MediaMapper for desktop.
  • Patrol/Event Recorder with NMEA compliant record schemas compatible to MediaGeotagger and GEM2MISB for Esri ArcGIS and the free Full Motion Video module.

MediaMapper Mobile is available at the Google Play store. For more information, call Ellen Skinner at 970-344-6290 or email
