Does anyone of a program, extension or tool that links a video with a GPS trail? I found this video and would like to be able to do something similar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G07DWVRJBVU

Thanks!

If you work with Quantum GIS, you can use the plugin eVis to link your data with external files. It has been developed for pictures but I assume that it can work as well for videos.

If you don't mind tweaking a little HTML/JavaScript I found an example of using the Google Earth and YouTube player APIs in conjunction to do something like this.

Basically you would create a Google Earth tour from your GPS track and save it as a KML file, upload the video to YouTube, and tweak the code to point to them.

The APIs may have changed slightly since this was created, and the videos don't seem to play on their own like the instructions suggest, but it might be fun to play with.

This is built in to ArcGIS 10.0, you just need to time-enable a layer in your Table of Contents.

Will a time-enabled layer play a video, like the one from the car in the above youtube video? I would like to simultaneously see the time enable GPS track and a video of what you would see if you walked the GPS track. –  Sarah Feb 21 '12 at 20:26
