A new software app designed to give you a panoramic view of Australia’s polar regions is coming to mobile devices.
The app, called EagleView, will be launched this month by an Australian startup called Pegasus Technologies, according to its website.
“The EagleView app will allow you to view the northern polar regions in 360-degree and 360-degrees,” the company’s website reads.
While the company says the app is not yet available in Australia, it has already been downloaded 1.7 million times on Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
Pegasus says it is targeting users with a wide range of interests, including those who have no interest in the Northern Territory.
“There are a lot of people in the northern hemisphere who have some interest in geospatial imagery, but there are also a lot more people in Australia who have an interest in this subject, so it is a very broad range of people,” Pegasus CEO and co-founder Dr Andrew McLean told Business Insider Australia.
EagleView has been designed to work across mobile devices and will be available in English and German, Pegasus told Business Australia.
While it has yet to be officially launched, Pegasus says it expects EagleView to become more popular as it develops.
“We think that the app will eventually become more widespread, but we haven’t yet set the launch date,” McLean said.
“[It will be] in early summer and we think that in that time it will be able to expand.”
McLean said EagleView will be released with several new features that are being tested in an attempt to provide a more realistic view of a particular location.
“One of the features that we have in place is a mode called ‘Pale Blue’, which is a feature that is intended to give a wider view of different parts of the image,” Mclean said.
“In other words, you can see things that you would not see in the same location if you were looking through a binocular.”
That’s what we are working on right now.
It’s a pretty cool feature that we’re testing.
“The app will be the latest in a series of apps that Pegasus is working on to provide users with the views they want.
In March, Pegasus released the first of the maps for the New South Wales River, a massive network of rivers that run through the Northern Territories.
Last year, Pegasus created an app for the Northern Rivers that lets users get a 360-by-360 panoramas of the Northern River’s flow.
But it’s not the first time Pegasus has been able to create an app that offers views that are not directly related to geospacial research.
In 2015, Pegasus produced a map of the northern deserts of California, which included satellite imagery from the University of Arizona.
That map was a part of Pegasus’ geospatially themed AR app, which also includes a 360 view of some of the desert’s largest formations.
As for EagleView’s potential for further use, McLean says Pegasus hopes that it will provide an accurate view of what is happening on the Northern Plains.”
It will help us with some of these things like, ‘What’s happening in the deserts of New South Walshes and the Northern Deserts?’,” he said.
