See how Mosaic customers benefit with a high resolution 360º player for street view
Mosaic recently partnered with 360camsters to provide our customers with a user-friendly and efficient way to view their 360º images in a street view player, quickly and without needing to operate other complex software solutions.
How it started
Mosaic brought to market an innovative new product in the mobile mapping industry several years ago.
The Mosaic 51 was the first 12k camera of its kind – specifically built to be a robust, reliable street-view data capturing machine that also delivers high resolution images.
- The only standalone unit – built-in GPU/CPU means you don’t need a cumbersome, complicated, or expensive workstation in the vehicle while capturing
- The industrial-grade construction and durability ensures a long life, reliable use and the ability to withstand harsh climates and conditions.
- The daily operations of the camera are extremely easy and require next to no training. The job can be done by nearly anyone.

- Data is NON-vendor locked so customers are able to use the post-processing software of their choosing (in-house, 3rd party, etc.).
Along the way customers have asked for assistance in choosing post-processing software.
Hence our first partnership with MistikaVR. This partner provides the best stitching for our cameras and does it at an optimal speed, utilizing properly all computation resources, including GPU.

This has been an ideal solution for our customers who use more complex GIS software such as ESRI, Bentley, Manifold or their own in-house solution and simply need the data from the Mosaic images (6 frames per view) stitched perfectly.
In addition, several customers have asked for help when selecting a 360º viewer (similar to Google Street View). And so we have partnered with 360camsters. This continues our offer to our customers of the easiest solution on the market for 360º mobile mapping data collection – from setting it up, capturing, processing and viewing.
