Keep your GPS tracklog
As soon as you start filming, record your activity with a device that can collect your GPS coordinate. You can either use a smartwatch, a mobile app such as Runtastic, Strava, Runkeeper, or your camera to keep a record of your GPS location with route details.
Export your GPS data
To easily retrieve your GPS tracklog, you’ll either need access to the web interface of your sensor supplier or you can also export your GPS data from a mobile app.
Then, you’ll be able to export your activity as a .GPX, .FIT, .NMEA or .TCX. file that will contain your GPS coordinates and timestamps.
If you recorded the GPS track with your GoPro7, here is a tool that you can use to export the GPS data.
If your smartwatch or activity tracker has the option, you will also be able to collect your elevation and heart rate data.
This happens especially when you created a GPS file manually with 'openrunner' or 'Strava' for example or if you already downloaded an existing GPS file from a third-party platform.
Keep filming without stopping the recording
To synchronize your video with your GPS tracklog, you will need to record and to upload a continuous file on Kinomap. If you have different sections of video with a pause in between, you have to upload each section independently. As a side note, if your camera creates several chunks of 2GB or 4GB due to the memory card format limitation, you can combine them into a single file with our free software VideoTaped.
Upload and synchronize your geolocated video
Upload your video then your GPS track on our dedicated page. Then, you will be able to synchronize your files to match your GPS data with the images. By using a visual landmark on your video (such as a crosswalk, a turn, parking, etc.), you should be able to find the same moment on your GPS file.
