Mobile Mapping Company Chooses Honeywell HGuide n580 for High-Accuracy Positioning


Horus View and Explore, based in the Netherlands, specializes in integrating video, sensor fusion technology and their proprietary mapping software to help companies collect and process geospatial data. Their customers collect this data using cars, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), boats and trains to form GIS data, digital maps or geo-referenced images and video with time-stamped information.

Horus View and Explore got its start in mobile mapping in 2006 when the founder was looking for a simple, but cost-effective method to improve the accuracy of geospatial data used by organizations responsible for maintaining public areas like roads, bridges and critical infrastructure.

One of the most significant issues Horus set out to fix was in emergency services. When crews responded to an incident, they were relying on geographical data that was outdated, which made it difficult to find the right location.

Similarly, local governments needed a solution to help them proactively survey street signs, road conditions and more.

“It’s very important for governments to frequently measure the condition of their assets. Having the ability to compare past data with today’s information allows you to see degradation over time.”
– Dirk Aalbers, Sales Manager Geospatial, Horus

Shortly after, Horus introduced their first system that utilized a 360-degree camera, sensors, software and other equipment to measure geographical information. The system measures the distance from the road to the vehicle and uses the new navigation data to improve their customers’ mapping systems. It incorporates the HGuide n580 from Honeywell for high-accuracy GPS.

“We need equipment like the Honeywell n580 to have a good position even when GPS sometimes fails insid cities because of high buildings and trees.”
– Dirk Aalbers, Sales Manager Geospatial, Horus

Today, Horus provides do-it yourself recording systems and develops hardware-independent software platforms to capture and stream data. Horus’ solutions are based on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components. This means there’s a solution for every application and for every budget.

“A reliable system requires reliable hardware. Honeywell supplies reliable hardware. That helps us enormously.”
– Robert Medendorp, Project Engineer, Horus
