Geospatial Multimedia technology enables video, imagery & audio streams to be recorded together with navigation (e.g. GPS) as well as orienatation (e.g. Digital Compass) sensor information. These geocoded multimedia streams can then be uploaded to a server where they can be visusalised in an integrated mapping/media browser display. The user can interact dynamically with the georeferenced content by controlling play-back, tagging and spatial query.
Any user can sign up for an account through Ubipix. The Ubipix App can be downloaded from App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android). User can then start-up the App, input username and password and start recording, tagging, uploading and sharing their Ubipix trails & adventures.
You can record geocoded, tagged video (video + audio + GPS + digital compass + tags), image collections (camera images, GPS, digital compass, tags), tagged navigation (GPS + digital compass + tags) or simple just navigation (GPS + digital compass).
If GPS operates in Flight mode, then Ubipix will work. Samsung Galaxy allows GPS to be enabled in flight mode however Apple iPhone turns off GPS in flight Mode. Consult the owner manual for your device.
Sometimes, it is difficult for GPS to compute a location fix. It is best to consult the owner manual. Also, ensure you have Wireless Networks enabled if your SmartPhone uses Assisted GPS and/or cell tower location. Ensure you have a clear, & un-obstructed view of the sky, outdoors away from tall buildings, trees and structures. An unobstructed view will also help reduce the Time To First Fix (TTFF).
This will usually works ok if GPS is under light-weight material eg light clothing. Best idea is to try recording a short trail first before testing it over a longer time interval.
If iPhone, check operation using Compass utility. Calibrate as per user manual. There are various compass Apps available for Android that also include calibration testing. On Samsung, key in *#0*#, click Sensor, if "Need for calibration" is displayed on black circular dial and/or numeric value is less then 3 you will need to calibrate. You can do this by holding Smartphone away from any magnetic sources and move the device through a figure of eight pattern 'til numeric value changes to 3. Some SmartPhones have covers that have a magnetised fastner. It is a good idea to remove these if using the Digital Compass.

Ubipix SmartApp is programmed to terminate the session and allow user take the call. If you do not want this to happen, just switch your SmartPhone to Flight Mode.
This may be dues to a poorly calibrated digital compass. The user can correct this in Interaction Page by clicking the 'Setting' symbol just to the right and below the video display. Here the user can choose either GPS or Digital compas as main source for heading or indeed correct either by entering a number of using your mouse wheel. Note, user can save correction and preferred orientation sensor to the database. Remember you must be logged in and own the Ubipix clip to do this.
The user can do this on the Interaction Page by clicking the 'Setting' symbol just to the right and below the video display. The user can click "+" or "-" on the pull donw menu or indded same keyboard keys.
The main home page also, termed "Discovery Page", allows users to search for clips using Map display or through the thumbnail listing. User can visualise the multimedia content in the "Interaction Page" by clicking any of these clips or trails. The user can access their own trails through "MyTracks" page, once logged in. Logion details are required. Clicking the Ubipix logo at the top of the page will always bring them back to the Discovery Page.
The URL of each interactive session enables that clip to be easily transmitted to others where it can be played directly. This same URL can be popped into other web-sites, pages etc and allows rapid sharing of the trail. Users can also email their Ubipix clips and trails directly from the page, tweet these trails or forward the Ubipix clip directly to their Facebook account using the content sharing console which appears just to the left of Map Display on Interaction Page.
Users can record any clips upto 15 minutes duration. Users are currently allocated 500MB online storage. Please contact us email@example.com if you require additional storage.
Users can set any of their trails and clips to be public or private with a simple click of a button on the App before upload or on the web site under "MyTracks", when they log in. Users can also delete selected clips on the Ubipix web site.
