Red Hen Systems Develops World's First Prototype for Mapping Camera Phone Pictures

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Hen Systems, Inc., announced their latest breakthrough in mapping technology that will give cellular camera phone users the ability to map their pictures in real-time. The prototype works with Red Hen's multimedia mapping software, MediaMapper(R), and PixPoint(TM), a software extension to ESRI's ArcGIS that enables the collection and management of spatially referenced digital photographs. This application will bring an entirely new set of capabilities to a wide range of users including first responders, municipalities, and law enforcement.

The new software combines the accuracy of GPS mapping with the portability and visual communication capabilities of photophones. As an audio-visual data collection tool, it will offer a rapid method for gathering and transmitting vital field information from numerous camera phone users to a centralized location.

"Off-the-shelf camera phones are a natural fit with MediaMapper and PixPoint," said Ken Burgess, CTO at Red Hen Systems. "In emergency management situations, for example, this technology will provide decision makers with more descriptive, real-time situational assessments. This will enable a quicker, more coordinated response."

Once Red Hen software is loaded into the camera phone and activated, the program attaches spatial metadata from the Global Positioning System to the captured image. Using the e-mail application in the phone, pictures can then send to an e-mail account and automatically appear on the map. Using both MediaMapper and PixPoint, photographs can be viewed moments after being taken.

Paul Bailey, Business Partner Coordinator for the ESRI Denver Region commented, "This functionality will increase the ease of use already inherent in the Pixpoint product. The automation of linking location with images, now from simple telephone cameras that are directly delivered to the ArcGIS desktop, will allow rapid access to image information critical to analysis, most notably under times of crisis when information is needed quickly."

Based in Fort Collins, Colo., Red Hen Systems, Inc., is the leading global provider of spatial multimedia solutions for improved decision-making. Easy- to-use data collection tools and digital map-making capabilities allow users to publish interactive maps with geo-referenced photographs, video, and audio. Through Red Hen Systems technology, a clearer picture of a complex world emerges.
