Assign location to photos

Useful new feature: add locations to photos based of the time of shot.

Suppose your photos don't have geolocation info, only time, and your track have time too. In this case you can automatically place your photos on the map in just a couple of clicks.

First, place one reference photo manually. This is needed to synchronize clocks between the track and the camera. After that, click "Assign Locations" button on top - all photos are now on the map.

If something goes wrong you can use the "Undo" button.

In other news, we fixed an important bug that prevented some tracks to display.

NEW: Upload Photos

We added photo upload!

Just use the button "Upload Photos" on the big track view. Many photos can be uploaded at once. Photos will appear under the track.
Geo-tagged photos will automatically appear on the map, others can be placed/moved using drag and drop (even in Earth view).

Click on the thumb to see big photo, then use "Map", "Next", "Prev" buttons to navigate the gallery. You can also use arrows or "A","S","D" buttons to navigate. Click on the caption below to edit it.

That's all at this moment, but we're working on it.

You can see an example here.

PS: You can now place photos automatically

Vertical Speed & User Homepage

Few improvements:
  • On the user homepage the date of the track is shown instead of the upload date;
  • It's possible to change or set the track date in the info panel on the right;
  • In flying mode the controls disappears;
  • On the analyze page there is a new graph, called "Vertical Speed" (height gain per hour); this graph is avalaible for tracks that have both time and elevation;
  • We removed the timeout that was preventing slow uploads to finish correctly;
  • We did various style improvements;

Here an example of the vertical speed graph
