Geotag Ski/Snowboard Helmet Cam Videos
I just downloaded the beta version of Video GeoTagger and plan to try out geotagging some ski videos a little later. Any tips or tutorials on doing something like this? Thanks!
Thanks for downloading VGT! For best results with "automatic" geotagging, be sure you turn on your GPS logging BEFORE you start your video camera and you stop your GPS log file AFTER you stop your video camera. If you do that it should be just as easy to geotag you ski videos as you see in this How-To video:
In the video link, it shows that the GPS log track and video were manually synced. But if the video camera time clock and GPS clock were synced before hand, it seems like the software could be able to automatically sync the two files based on the start of the video clock.
I would appreciate it if you could clarify this.
Yes - If GPS track log is in a compatible format and the start/stop time is synced with the start/stop time of the video, then Video GeoTagger and LineVision will function as a geospatial video player load it right in without automatically, nor manually geotagging. What kind of geospatial video recorder are you using?
Actually I'm using a Gopro Hero 4 that doesn't have internal GPS. I was thinking of using this and a GPS logger on my phone and your software to synchronize everything.
This will be used on a motorcycle so it will be difficult to manually sync both files if the video is taken on an arbitrary road.
But after further research I think if I have the UTC time displayed on my phone's status bar I can just record the phone's screen at the start of any recording I make.
Then in post production I can read the UTC time that I captured on the phone screen in the video to sync with the GPS log file.
