Powerful map creation toolset

WorldMapper is a “story creation” map application that makes it easy to transform daily news easily into exciting maps clips that captivate audiences. You can seamlessly integrate WorldMapper into your news room using the Avid Maestro graphics suite. WorldMapper supports all standard video formats used by TV broadcasters worldwide.

Product Highlights

  • Global map database
  • Template-based workflow
  • Standalone and client/server configuration
  • 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.

  • The WorldMapper browser is embedded into the playout controller and the Maestro NewsProducer plugin, providing a powerful workflow that makes it fast and easy to create map clips using previously created templates. This enables rapid creation of final map clips directly within the graphic templates.

  • 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.
