Is there a plugin or easy way of adding audio recordings, recorded and tagged using OSMand app, into QGIS. I'm using a PC and have no coding knowledge! I was able to load the photographs using the "load photos" plugin then pop them up using the eVis plugin. I understand that I could also use eVis for audio but seems to require a database set up which I don't have.
I am just a beginner, and I dont think this is the best way, but it works - so here is my solution:
- import the gpx-file as a new layer into qgis, which osmand exports with all the audio-files and pictures
- export this new layer as a new shp-file from qgis and import it again into qgis - now you can edit this layer;
- in the attribute table you can see now all the notes from osmand
- insert a new column (e.g. "path") into the attribute table and fill in the absolute or relative file-paths on your pc to the notes
- start the evis-event browser; in "configure external applications" you can set up for the audio files (3gp files) that qgis should use VLC-Player (or any other player)
- Finished! With the eVis event tool you can click on the layer Points. Images will be shown in the small window; With audio files you have to click on the path and your media player will launch...
If you have a lot of notes I used the following method:
- Use directory printer to print a excel (CVS) sheet with information (absolute or relative path to the notes) of all the notes
- add some kind of matching ID in this list so that you can Join this list with your points layer in QGIS
- import this list as text layer to qgis
- use JOIN-function to add the path information from the excel sheet (CSV) to the point layer
