    How to configure the map-based tracking assistant in BVMS 11.0?

    BVMS is a data-driven video management system that supports predictive solutions by establishing a decision center delivering actionable insights to customers.

    The latest version offers a map-based tracking assistant and improved geographical awareness with online maps. Read on to learn how to configure the map-based tracking assistant.

    The map-based tracking assistant requires a license. Before beginning, check the license in Configuration Client by accessing the License Inspector, which is found under the Tools menu.

    The value of the Online map and Map-based tracking assistant licenses must list "True" in the License Limit column.

     

    Step-by-step guide

     

    To enable the map-based tracking assistant feature:

    • Click Settings and select Options from the drop-down list.

    • Save and activate the settings.


    Next, adjust the view area of PTZ cameras on the map:

    • Type in the location where the cameras are installed and adjust the map to fit the area surveilled by the cameras.
    • Drag and drop PTZ cameras on the map where they are installed and adjust the reachable view by following the on-screen tips.

    • Show a preview of the camera by clicking the eye button or right clicking the camera icon. The preview window shows the live camera image.
    • Adjust the view cone on the map. The view cone should correspond to the direction the camera is looking (shown in the preview window).
