Our 360° Street Level Capture Service

From small projects of just a few miles to entire metropolitans, our data capture service utilises NCTech’s imaging systems, our cloud platform and our computer vision technologies together with our worldwide network of data capturers, known as Virtualizers, to help create smarter cities, more accurate maps and drive efficiency within GIS workflows.


Big data capture

iSTAR Pulsar is our big data capture device developed in collaboration with Google, Intel and Sony for collection of 360 degree street level imagery. The system captures unparalleled 11K spherical resolution, delivering incredible 60.5 megapixel panoramic images at 7fps. In addition to 360° images, LiDAR data can be captured to generate 3D point clouds, enabling measurement extraction from the location.

Camera roof

Capture process

Data is captured from a roof mount on any vehicle for road capture, a route is defined and our imaging system ensures that only this data will be collected by referencing our high accuracy GPS, IMU and compass systems. iSTAR Pulsar dynamically adjusts capture rate to provide a consistent spacing interval.

Street AI

Object detection

Our industry-leading solution provides the opportunity to automate the process of object detection and classifications by using computer vision algorithms which in turn provides a more economic solution than a fully manual process.
