Powerful map creation toolset
WorldMapper is a “story creation” map application that makes it easy to transform daily news easily into exciting map-centric sequences that captivate audiences. You can seamlessly integrate WorldMapper into your newsroom using the Avid Maestro | News or MediaCentral. WorldMapper supports all standard video formats used by TV broadcasters worldwide.
WorldMapper is based on Microsoft’s powerful Bing™ search engine, NASA’s Blue Marble mapping services, and Open Street Maps. WorldMapper also includes a library of all national and interstate borders, so political information can be integrated quickly and easily.
With the WorldMapper plugin, you can create map sequences directly from Maestro | News or in MediaCentral and save them to MediaCentral | Production for anyone with access to use. Once saved, journalists can edit the maps in a MediaCentral timeline, and editors can use them in Media Composer or as a video in a Maestro graphics template.
WorldMapper can be used as a standalone application as well as a client-server, and up to five clients can be connected simultaneously. If the workflow contains more than one WorldMapper, content can be centralized by sharing a common database.
