GPS + Video + Google Earth = Pretty awesome

GPS4Sport has just released a new product that combines GPS track data with action cam movies, then overlays the movie on top of the Google Earth plug-in while it all runs. It sounds complicated, and I’m sure it is on the back end, but the result for the end user is really quite cool.

You can watch a great example of one here.
It also supports flight activities, such as this one, shown here:

The flight mode supports video as well, though they don’t have any examples of that yet. Check it all out for yourself at GPS4Sport.com.

  1. Excellent application! a great combination of tools if not all will be made ​​with Google’s technology, but seeing this application came to my head MyTracks Google, Google Latitude, Youtube, Google Earth, etc.
    I see great uses for police vehicles, emergency, insurance, and tourism.
    My question is … outside the Google Earth API, use other APIs?
    I’ll share it on my blog.
    thanks for sharing;)

  2. Hello! Thx for Your appreciation! To be honest we created this system with fun in mind not a serious use :). About API. We’re using Google Earth API, Google Maps API and YT player API.
