The article describes methodical and practical aspects for equipping mobile facilities with computer vision systems in order to solve navigation and measuring tasks. There is an overall schematic of software and algorithmic support of the integrated information system based on computer vision for mobile facilities. There described principles of building-up such systems and there provided possible options for software and hardware arrangements. There emphasized questions concerning the automation for operations of calibration of some components of measuring section and that of interconnection of various heterogeneous systems. There are examples of implementing integrated information system for navigation and measuring tasks.
