Introduction Horus Movie Player
The Horus 360 Suite consists of three separate programs: the Horus Movie Recorder, the Horus Movie
Maker and the Horus Movie Player. This manual describes the Horus Movie Player software. The
Horus Movie Player can be supplied with optional inventory tools as the Layer Manager, Annotation
Module, Immersive View Builder and IR Coloring. These are also described in this manual.
The Horus Movie Recorder’s main function is to record all the data from the camera’s and additional
sensors. The Horus Movie Recorder has a simple playback function; it is merely used to check the
images that have just been recorded. The Horus Movie Maker is used to edit the recordings, it is used
to select the useful recordings and allows you to cut out sections that aren’t needed.
The Horus Movie Player is used for the actual inspection and survey duties.
This manual is written in the assumption that the reader has basic knowledge of video inspections and
basic computer knowledge.

Disable thumbnail viewer update
The thumbnail view in the Multiview mode (see 3.5.5) will load the stream from all cameras during
playback. This requires a lot of data to be processed. Especially on older computers this may cause a
decrease in system performance. The camera (and data) stream can be limited with the Deactivate
thumbnail view update function. This function freezes the thumbnail update to increase the system
performance. Click Options in the menu bar and check the Disable thumbnail view preview option:

With the Jaw, Pitch and Roll sliders the corresponding angles can be adjusted.
3.7.2
Adjusting the camera height
If the camera height in relation to the ground level is offset, the camera height can be adjusted with
the Camera h slider.
3.7.3
Adjusting the time shift
The time shift indicates the time difference (caused by the vehicle speed and GPS lagging) from the
actual recording location and the location measured by the GPS. When during playback the recording
position on the map doesn’t correspond with the location on the main screen, the Time shift slider can
be used to synchronize the recording location and the GPS location. The number itself stands a frame
shift, no distance is changed here.
3.7.4
Adjusting the camera position in relation to the GPS
The difference in the distance between the cameras and GPS antenna can affect the accuracy. To
adjust this, the camera position in relation to the GPS antenna can be set with the sliders Lev. Arm X, Y
and Z. By moving the slider, the position of the camera can be set up to 1 cm accurate.
3.7.5
Main screen cursor
The main screen cursor (see 3.4) can be activated or deactivated with the checkbox in the preferences
menu:

Compass and alignment axis
The compass and alignment axis help to determine the exact position of objects and the viewing
direction in relation to the recording location. By clicking the Compass button, the Horus Movie Player
will project a compass on the camera position. With the Alignment axis button the alignment axis can
be (de-)activated:

The alignment axis has two horizontal lines: a red and a white one. The white line is the horizontal
level of the recording vehicle, the red line is the corrected horizon. You will notice that the white line
may tilt during playback of the recording. The red line however, stays level with the optical horizon.

Horus Project Builder
The Horus Project Builder is developed to keep track of the recordings and enables you to quickly
oversee and open them in the Horus Movie Player. The Project Builder generates a .kml file that can
be opened in Google Earth. The travel paths of all recordings (in a specified) directory are displayed as
colored lines in Google Earth. You can select a recording by simply clicking on a line. The recording
will then be opened in the Horus Movie Player.
The KML file can also be opened with the Layer Manager module. With this function you can switch
rapidly between recordings. When you click on a line, a pop-up screen will show the name of the
recording. See chapter 5.2.

Layer Manager module
With the Layer Manager module several layers can be added to the views in the Horus Movie Player.
These layers are used for the actual inspection and survey activities. The Layer Manager is used to add
and remove layers and to adjust their properties.
Layers are used to add information to the visual and geographical data. This information is added in
the form of annotations, or ‘features’. A feature can consist of a geometrical shape (like a line,
polygon, height line), a point, a written annotation (a form) of a combination of the aforementioned. For
more information see chapter 6, page 45.
Forms are the foundation for the normal working routine with the Mobile Mapping suite, it is therefore
important to understand some basics of the ‘inner workings’ of the .xml forms. This is explained in
paragraph 16.1.

Editing of layers – activation and deactivation
With the Edit checkbox in the Layer manager, you can select the layer you want to edit. When the
checkbox is marked the layer can be edited. You can only edit one layer at a time, the travel path and
cursor layer cannot be edited:
Fig. 61- Layer edit checkboxes
5.2.2
Visibility of layers
By activating (or deactivating) a layer is made visible (or invisible) in the main screen. A layer is
activated by selecting the Visible box in the Layer Manager:
Fig. 62- Layer visibility checkboxes
5.2.3
Troubleshooting – layer visibility
It is possible that a layer is not immediately visible in the main screen. It may be necessary to move to
the next (or previous) frame before the data is visualized in the main screen.
In case of a GIS layer that is only 2D data (without Z-Coordinate), look up or down in the main screen,
the GIS is most likely not projected on ground level. To do so, select the Override height box in the
Layer Manager (see 5.2.7).
Also check the setting of the Projection field during the layer import (see 5.2); There are several
options possible in recording and projecting. Within the WGS84 the EPSG:4326 is a standard for
recording without any transformations. When recorded at this way, loaded data (dwg, shp) also needs
to be in the same EPSG format. Please note that the recording always needs to be in an oblate
spheroid (ellipsoid). This is because the software always needs it’s complete radius of the map (whole
world).
For example: When you have recorded something in WGS84 (EPSG:4326) the input layers need to be in
WGS84 (EPSG:4326). When recorded in WGS84 (EPSG:3785) the input needs to be in WGS84
(EPSG:3785)
For the Netherlands there is already a conversion for RD. The input here is: Dutch RD (EPSG:28992). In
the future we will support more projections.
5.2.4
Setting the visible range
The layers are rendered up to a certain distance from the cameras (or recording vehicle for that
matter). This means that the layers (and the related annotations) are shown up to a certain distance.
To increase or decrease the distance in which the layers need to be rendered, the visible range can be
adjusted in the Layer Manager. By increasing the visible range, the layers will be rendered up to a
larger distance from the cameras. Decreasing this distance will result in a smaller rendering
distance:

5.2.5
Adjusting the layer object colors
The color of objects in layers can be adjusted by using the pull down arrows in the Outline and Fill
columns. Click the arrow and select the color, the new colors are in effect immediately and apply to all
objects within that layer. The opacity can be altered by using the slide button in the Opacity column:
Fig. 64- Outline, fill and opacity settings of layer objects
5.2.6
Making objects in a layer selectable
Objects in a layer are normally selectable, by selecting an object or annotation, the user can delete the
object. To prevent annotations or object s from being deleted from a layer, the selection possibility can
be turned off by unchecking the checkboxes in the Selectable column:
Fig. 65- Outline, fill and opacity settings of layer objects
5.2.7
Selection range
The selection range determines the ‘sensitivity’ of objects during selection by the cursor. Small
objects, like line geometries, may be difficult to select with the cursor. To increase the selection range
of the cursor, the Selection Range can be increased. The selection range is expressed in pixels, so
when the Selection Range is set to 5, the selection width of the cursor is 5 pixels in diameter.
Fig. 66- Selection range of the cursor
5.2.8
Override height
Normally, the Horus Movie Player uses the ground level from the camera position as a reference for
the spatial data in the layers. If the ground level reference from the layer data does not correspond
with the measurements from the recording position, objects tend to ‘float’ above ground level. By
selecting Override height all spatial data is projected on ground level. This can typically be used with
data without a Z-coordinate:

5.2.11 Set Query type – Buffering SQ-lite data
During playback of the recording the Horus Movie Player will buffer all annotations and features that
are made in the visual proximity of the recording. The buffering of all data along the travelpath may
cause a high load on the computer. To reduce the load, the amount of data that needs to be buffered
can be reduced by setting the Query type. Click the … button (Options) in the Layer Manager, click
QueryType and select the desired query type. Default setting is Bounding_Box:

5.3.8
Import as spatialite layer
A spatialite layer is highly recommended when you have to annotate a large amount of geometries. A
spatialite layer allows you to store the annotations and open them at a later time. This allows you
continue to work without having to annotate all geometries in one session. When all annotations are
made, you can export the layer to another format, for instance GIS or CAD data.

Geometries
The Layer edit module allows you to annotate points and objects in the images by creating a geometry.
These geometries are linked to the GPS coordinates and they are projected on the image in the main
screen. This means that the GPS information is leading for the exact size and shape of geometries, not
the image data.
When creating a geometry, it is important to maintain the highest possible accuracy. This is
determined – as stated – by the GPS coordinates. The accuracy for (possible) measurements is
indicated by the color of the cursor in the main screen. The accuracy decreases when the cursor is
moved away from the recording position. The color of the cursor will change to orange and red to
indicate a decreased accuracy:
Fig. 97- A changing cursor color indicates the accuracy of
measurements possible (The cursor may vary from this
image)

Multi click measurement
The multi click measurement function is used to measure surface areas that are not on ground level.
The multi click measurement is performed by defining the corners (points) from different recording
locations. The Horus Movie Player can calculate the surface area using the spatial data and GPS info.
To perform a multi click measurement, click the Multi click measurement button:
Fig. 139- Multi click measurement button
The multi click measurement menu will appear in the bottom of the screen:
Fig. 140- Multi click measurement screen
In this example the surface area of the large window in the main screen (indicated with the blue
rectangle) will be measured.
The multi click measurement can be performed by two methods: the 3-click and 5-click method. The
3-click method uses the spatial data from 3 frames, the 5-click method uses the data from 5 frames
and is the most accurate. For the measurement of the window in this example, the 3-click method is
sufficient, therefore, the 3-Click method is selected (1). After that, you need to specify the number of
points you need for the measurement. In this case (a rectangular shape) four points are needed (2):

Surface Measurement module
The Surface Measurement module is used for exact measurements of vertical areas from the
recording position. First, you have to create a drawing / annotation layer, to do this, refer to section
5.3, page 36. Next, the Surface Measurement module must be started. Click the Surface Measurement
button:
Fig. 182-
In order to perform an exact measurement, the baseline of the vertical area has to be determined. The
baseline is the line where the (extended) vertical area crosses the ground level (or surface). This is
explained in the following illustration:
Fig. 183- Determination of the baseline
The vertical green lines mark the vertical area (the façade of the building). The red line marks the
surface area where the vertical area meets the surface. This red line is the baseline.
The surface measurement can be applied to any layer. In this example we put the result into the
sketch layer.
To start the surface measurement, create a sketch layer for the measurements. Open the Layer
Manager and create a new Sketch layer:
Fig. 184- New Sketch layer
The following step is to select the Sketch layer in the Layer Manager and enable editing:
Fig. 185- Select sketch layer and enable editing

Hold the Shift-key and draw a rectangle in your view from top left to bottom left and pull the rectangle
to the right. Release the mouse button to finish the rectangle:
Fig. 196-
Draw the rectangle in front of the recording vehicle, preferably in the area where the cursor is green
(see 3.4, page 15). Make sure there is some overlap in the surface area you want to record, the utmost
part of the rectangle must overlap the front of the rectangle in the next frame.
13.1
Recording a orthographic projection
After the rectangle is completed, the Single tiff and Multiple tiff buttons are enabled. Single tiff
creates an orthographic projection based on the information in one single rectangle. By clicking
Multiple tiff, the recording is played back and the module creates orthographic projections from the
rectangle in each frame. The recordings are stitched to one large orthographic projection. A Multiple
tiff recording is stopped by clicking the Multiple tiff button a second time.

Travelpath designer
The Travelpath Designer module is used to add a GPS track to existing recordings, when no GPS
signal was available or recorded during the image recording session. It can be used to add a
travelpath (with a maximum of 100 meters) to a road or in a building. The base file for a travelpath is a
line string, a continuous line connected by points. These point function as reference points, and are
place on locations of which the (almost) exact position is known.
By connecting an image that was recorded on a specific point, the software is capable to spread the
other images from the recording over the line string, thus creating the GPS travelpath with the
accompanying images.
A line string can be created in another program, for instance AutoCad, but it can also be created based
on an aerial photo from Google Maps in the Horus software. This is done in the Sketches layer, using
the line string geometry.
15.1
Creating a travelpath in a Sketch layer
First, the line string layer has to be created. Press Ctrl-N, a dialogue box appears in which you can set
the name of the layer:
Fig. 206- Creating a new sketch layer
After the layer has been created, select the layer in de Layer Manager and check the Edit checkbox.
The following step is to create the line string, this is done with the Multiline tool:
Fig. 207- Add multiline button
A multiline can be created in the main screen, but it is recommended to draw the multiline in the map
screen. Fixed elements on the map (for instance building, roads, waterways) provide handholds for the
(GPS) position of the images in the recording. Draw the multiline points on the map (please refer to
6.1.5, page 49), preferably on positions that can easily be recognized from the recording (positions),
such as road crossings, or parallel to the sidewall of a building:
Fig. 208- Linestring on the map
User manual Horus Movie Player
79
Next, click the Travelpath button:
Fig. 209- Travelpath button
The Travelpath Designer is opened, select the layer that is used for the line string and click Select:
Fig. 210- Select line string layer
The next step is to connect the images to the points on the line string. Search for the image that was
recorded on the first point of the line string, this can be done in the main screen of the Horus Movie
Player. By using the < and > arrows in the Travelpath Designer the previous and next frames can be
selected. To connect the image (the recording location) to the line string point, click the Add to
travelpath (+) button in the Travelpath Designer. The recording location of the image is now connected
to a GPS position. Repeat these steps until all points on the map are connected to a recording position.
Next, you have to determine whether you want to create a straight travelpath, or that you want to
interpolate the points, in order to create smooth curves. This is done with the Interpolate and Angular
buttons:
Fig. 211- Curved and Straight travelpath buttons
User manual Horus Movie Player

Click Finish to finish editing the travelpath. The Travelpath Designer will now create the travelpath
between the first and last point of the line string. All frames of the recording between these points are
now visible on the map.

Creating .xml forms – Experienced users
16.1
Creating a new form
Layers are used to annotate the images of the recording session. Normally, the annotations layer is
started when a recording is opened, but the geometrical annotations (geometries) that are made in
this layer do not have the possibility to add written annotations by means of a form. When you create
your own layer, you can add textual information and a form to the geometries.
16.2
Creating an annotations form
If you want to create a layer in which you want to add both geometrical and written annotations, you
need to create a form first. This form is needed when you create the new layer. The following
paragraph is intended for users that are familiar with xml programming.
An annotations form is defined by the entity.xml file. This file is stored in the same folder as the
recording. The entity.xml file can also be stored in the C:/Horus folder, if the file is stored in that
folder, the form can be used in all recordings.
A file called layer_entities.xml does the same as the entity.xml file, but it defines forms for several
layers. For this file you need to define an EntityDescription in which the ID refers to the layer it applies
to. For instance: ID=lampposts_basefile_rd refers to the layer in which all lampposts are visualized.
The difference between the entity.xml file and the layers_entites.xml file can be seen in the first lines
of the xml file. Because a layer_entities.xml defines multiple forms, the file starts with the
<EntityDescriptionCollection> tag. Within these tags a set of EntityDescriptions are defined with the
<EntityDescriptions> - </Entitydescription> tags.
To create a new entity.xml file, you can use an existing xml file from the recording directory:
Fig. 214- The existing file is used to create a new form
You can open this file in the xml editor you prefer, Notepad.exe is usually well suited for quick editing
tasks. You can now create your own form, using the command in the following section. Make sure to
give the form a unique ID:
Fig. 215- The ID of the annotations form in the xml editor
User manual Horus Movie Player
82
16.3
XML Commands
The following xml commands are used for the annotations form
AttributeDescription
For example:
<AttributeDescription DisplayName="Type las" Type="Enum" AutoComplete="true"
EnumValues="|Option 1|Option 2|Option 3|Option 4" />
<AttributeDescription DisplayName="Snapshot1" Type="Snapshot" Category="Snapshots"
SnapshotFileNameFormat="Las_{las}-Been_{been}-1.jpeg" />
Displayname
Defines the name of the field, spaces are allowed
Type
Defines the type of field, the following values are valid:
String
A line of tekst
Text
Multiple Lines of text
Int
An integer
Float
A number with decimals
Enum
Text with a limited list of valid values
Date
A date (with time)
Attachments

User manual Horus Movie Player
83
Category
Defines the category to which the attribute belongs. When the EntryDescription uses one or more
categories, the program will create a tab for every category in the form:
Fig. 216- Each category has its own tab
Fields without a category will be placed in the ‘Default’ tab.
DefaultValue
The standard value for the field. This value is displayed in the field when a new annotation is created.
Hidden
Valid values: ‘true’ or ‘false’ (in lowercase!). Determines that a field is not visible in the form. When the
field is present in the data, it will not be displayed in the form.
ReadOnly
Valid values: ‘true’ or ‘false’ (in lower case!). This command blocks the edit function of the field, i.e.:
the field cannot be edited.
SnapshotFileNameFormat
Only applies to field of the ‘Snapshot’ type. Defines the name of the snapshots that are made. It is
possible to use the values of other fields in the name of this field (the snapshot file name), this is done
by writing that field name in braces, for instance:
Snapshot_feature_{id}.jpeg
This value of SnapshotFileNameFormat causes the snapshot of an annotation with the ‘id’ value of 45,
to get the filename Snapshot_feature_45.jpeg.
Enum values
Only valid for the ‘Enum’ type fields. Contains valid values for the field, separated by the ‘|’ symbol (alt
+ 0124). If you want the values ‘one’, ‘two’ and ‘three’ in the list of choices, you need to type:
“one|two|three”
AutoComplete
Valid values: ‘true’ or ‘false’ (in lower case!). This command will result in an auto complete function
when the user is filling in the form. The suggestions are formed by the values in other annotations.
User manual Horus Movie Player
84
AutoFill
This command will fill the field with a calculated value. The following values are possible:
FrameNumber
The number of the current frame that is being displayed
Geometry:Length
Only valid for lines. The total length of a line
Geometry:Area
Only valid for polygons that form a plane. The total surface
area of the polygon in square meters
Geometry:Height
The height of a geometry in meters. The height is defined as
the difference between the lowest and the highest part
Geometry:COG
The center of gravity of the geometry
Geometry:GetUnits

polygons and ‘m1’ for lines
Geometry:GetAmount
The size of the geometry. Shows the surface area for polygons
in square meters, and the total length in meters for lines
16.4
Adding a hyperlink field to a form
It is possible to add a field in the annotations form in which the user can specify a hyperlink. This
requires the following line in the AttributesDescription:
<AttributeDescription DisplayName=”Link” Type=”Hyperlink” AutoComplete=”false”/>
After you are finished editing, save the xml file to the recording directory.
User manual Horus Movie Player
85
16.5
