A Loch Humprey Walk

The idea is to create something like the wonderful Hmsg Spiral Map but in a semi automatic way and with much pooer quality video & audio. I also wanted to try using JavaScript rather than flash.

Blog post with more details: Mapping iPhone Video.

  1. Several short iPhone videos.
  2. Location of videos & creating dates taken form file via exiftool a commandline application.
  3. An xml file with details of file names, time taken and location. (I used SuperCard and exiftool to automate this),
  4. Video exported to smaller versions using pcastaction a Mac OSX commandline tool which is designed to be used with Podcast Producer. Again automated via a SuperCard project.
  5. Video and xml uploaded
  6. This webpage loads xmlfile and uses jQuery to produce videos and maps using google maps static api.
