Which countries can I virtualize?

We are look­ing for Vir­tu­al­iz­ers in coun­tries all over the world.

What equipment is needed?

You will need to pur­chase an iSTAR Pul­sar and have a vehi­cle fit­ted with a roof bar on a hard­top roof, which can sup­port the iSTAR Pul­sar mount, an android or iOS phone and a fast broad­band con­nec­tion to upload the data. We will pro­vide free access to our VR.World nav­i­ga­tion man­age­ment app.

Can I use any vehicle?

To ensure con­sis­ten­cy of imag­ing through­out the world, all vehi­cles need to be able to be fit­ted with a roof bar and be mount­ed to a hard top roof to sup­port the iSTAR Pul­sar mount. Small to medi­um sized vehi­cles are pre­ferred and must be capa­ble of dri­ving on pub­lic roads. If in any doubt please con­tact our sup­port team pri­or to pur­chase.

Who can become a VR.World Virtualizer?

The oppor­tu­ni­ty is open to any­one who pur­chas­es an iSTAR Pul­sar, is legal­ly able to work and dri­ve in their area, has a valid bank account and agrees to the terms and con­di­tions in the NCTech VR.World agree­ment.

Will I be working for NCTech as an employee?

No.

NCTech VR.World offers routes for self-employed, free­lance or inde­pen­dent con­trac­tors who are look­ing to add addi­tion­al income for them­selves or their busi­ness. The avail­abil­i­ty of work can be affect­ed by sea­son­al­i­ty and demand and it is there­fore rec­om­mend­ed to add this to oth­er com­mer­cial oppor­tu­ni­ties.

Can someone else use the camera?

Yes.

You can use the cam­era as an indi­vid­ual, share as part of a group or even issue it to your own employees.The Vir­tu­al­iz­er pro­gram is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to add addi­tion­al income for your­self or your busi­ness.

How do I select routes?

On pur­chas­ing the iSTAR Pul­sar you will be sent a link to down­load the app to con­trol it. Through the app, you can reg­is­ter to become a VR.World Vir­tu­al­iz­er. You will also have access to train­ing and sup­port, which will allow you to access and choose avail­able routes in your area.

How long will the routes be?

Routes will range from 1 to 7 hour dri­ves, based on aver­age road speeds in the area. Routes can be select­ed days in advance of the due date, as we appre­ci­ate that weath­er and oth­er fac­tors can influ­ence the best time to cap­ture. Pay­ment for vir­tu­al­iz­ing a route will vary depend­ing on the area and dis­tance. An esti­mat­ed pay­ment for vir­tu­al­iz­ing a route is shown when select­ing the route in the app.

How did you base the estimated earnings per hour?

Routes are based on com­pet­i­tive hourly rates for each coun­try, dis­tances trav­elled and run­ning costs. All pric­ing is fixed and pay­ments are made on com­ple­tion of a route being uploaded and ver­i­fied.

When do I need to virtualize?

Cap­tures are done in the hours of day­light. As long as cap­tures are done in day­light you can choose your own work pat­tern (be it a late or ear­ly start, week days or week­ends) to suit your lifestyle.  The only thing we would ask you to bear in mind is that you will prob­a­bly want to avoid rush hour in your cap­ture area.

Can I take a break?

As many breaks as you want.

…and enjoy the break!  Once fin­ished just return to the same point you stopped to take a break and con­tin­ue your cap­ture.

Can I capture using another type of vehicle or on foot?

There is an approved NCTech Explor­er Back­pack which is avail­able from our store to allow you to cap­ture on foot. The Explor­er Back­pack will be used on routes that are exclu­sive to pedes­tri­anised areas. We do not advise that you use any oth­er type of vehi­cles out­with a car, van or Explor­er Back­pack.

Does the payment include tax?

As a self-employed con­trac­tor / work­er you will be required to pro­vide a self-assess­ment tax return each year to ensure you pay the appro­pri­ate tax­a­tion for your coun­try. We would advise that you seek advice on any self-employ­ment ques­tions with your local tax office.

How do I get paid and when?

Pay­ment will be made to the bank account of the reg­is­tered iStar Pul­sar own­er on ver­i­fi­ca­tion of com­plet­ed routes on the last day of each cal­en­dar month.

How do I get the app?

A link to down­load the app will be sent to you once you have pur­chased your iSTAR Pul­sar.
