OpenStreetMap

Video + GPS data + Google Earth image

Posted by wangchun on 17 February 2010 in English (English)

The video was recorded on a train from Amdo to Tsonag Lake, in Tibet.

Watch it on YouTube:

The raw GPS data could be found at:

And a few screenshot images of my home-made program to do it:

If anyone is interested in the program, I may spend some time to release it.

Location: Amdo County, Nagqu Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region, People's Republic of China

This is pretty awesome! I'd say this technology has business potential. See the interactive maps at: http://www.whistlerolympicpark.com/venue/trailmaps/tabid/63/Default.aspx

There they have similar functionality to yours, only its not built into the video. The technology behind it was partly developed by people where I work and supported by a collegue of mine.

Have you seen http://www.google.ru/intl/ru/landing/transsib/en.html ?
Movie and map are synchronized in both directions.

I would be interested in the code! I am a QuickTime/Cocoa programmer.
