    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing for visualization and analysis of geospatial data are described. An example method includes receiving input data comprising at least geospatial data; automatically generating a first map comprising a plurality of layers, each comprising part of the input data; providing a graphical user interface (GUI) for receiving selection(s) from a user of one or more layers of the first map for display; automatically generating a second map based on the selection(s); and causing display of the second map on a client device. Input data may originate from several data sources and include documents from a search and analytics engine. The map's visual properties are configurable based on user input via the GUI or a configuration. The example method combines server-side clustering and client-side symbolization to seamlessly create maps showing data of arbitrary size. The example method provides real-time full-text searching of map data of any size.

  • Patent number: 11398050
    Abstract: The present application relates to a system for generating a surround view and a method of operating the system. A synthesizer module synthesizes an output frame from input frames in accordance with predefined calibration data. The input frames have an overlapping region imaging an overlapping field of view captured by two adjacent cameras. An adjustment module receives height level information representative of a height level in the overlapping region; selects a data record out of a set of predefined calibration data records in accordance with the height level information; and updates the predefined a part of the calibration data with the selected data record.

  • Patent number: 11381757
    Abstract: An imaging system includes an image sensor and an image signal processor (ISP). The image sensor generates image data including a set of pixel values. The ISP defines a first subset of pixel values from the set of pixel values. The first subset of pixel values corresponds to at least one region of interest. The ISP defines a second subset of pixel values that is complementary to the first subset of pixel values. The ISP generates a first sub-image based on the second subset of pixel values. The ISP processes the first subset of pixel values to generate a second sub-image. Processing the first subset of pixel values includes at least one of changing a color of one or more pixel values from the first subset of pixel values and scaling the first subset of pixel values. The ISP merges the first and second sub-images to generate an output image.
