Summary0000985: two questions: 1. pictures placed on wrong place in map; 2. tracks are only partly shown on map
DescriptionIn the first place I would like to give my complements to the developer of this beautifull application.
I have two question, I think related to misusage. But perhaps you could help me:
Several pictures are placed on the map on a place which does not correspond with the track. While other pictures of the same sequence are placed on the right place. The exif data of the pictures (date) and the date of the tracks do correspond.
Not all tracks (several days of the journey)from the gps are shown on the map.

TagsNo tags attached.

hard to say anything without an image and the track

per default only the first 5 loaded tracks will be shown. You can configure this under "File | Settings" Tab "Map" option "Maximum Number of Track Files to Load Automatically"

The attached pictures is placed on the map about 30 km south of Jokkmokk. It should be placed were the car was parked (in front of the museum of Jokkmokk where the picture was taken).
This is just an example, other pictures are placed hundreds of kms from the place that they should be placed.
I attached the relevant part of the tracks, because the whole track is 13000Kb.

Thanks a lot.

the first part of your track is from 6:42:51 to 7:59:50. The second part is from 11:35:34 to 13:04:05. These are UTC times. Your image was taken at 10:35:25 CEST; this is 8:35:25 UTC (+2:00 hours).

There is no time in the GPX track which corresponds with the time from your image. Have you attached the wrong part of your GPX track?

That is correct, but in the "synchronize with gps data files" screen I compensated the difference.

can you make a screenshot of this dialog and attach it to this issue?

I've done a GPX sync with your settings (see screenshot). From the data this result is correct. Is it also the correct result in your opinion?

Yes, your sync is correct!!!!
What should I do, too..........????

have you also tried the synchronisation with the data from this issue? You have written that you have shortend the data. Perhaps there is a difference

reporter   ~0001850

Yes, I did it now like you did with the shortend data and it worked. But once again it did not work with the whole track with 49000 trackpoints. Is their perhaps a limitation of that kind?


2012-09-11 23:47

developer   ~0001851

as far as I know there is no limitation. Perhaps you can see something in the list after you've started the synchronisation

I noticed a difference between the date that the picture was taken and the so called "trackpuntzeit". These pictures are misplaced. Is that difference the reason for the misplaced images? Is so, how to change is. I attached a printscreen to show some examples.

Are the taken dates of the images correct? In my opinion it makes no sense to synchronize images with a track where the time difference is serveral days. Also your setting in the synchronization dialog with 650000 seconds (~ 7,5 days) makes no sense in my opinion.

GeoSettter takes the taken date/time and is searching this time/date in the track file. If you allow a difference of ~ 7,5 days between these 2 values the result can not be good.

The taken dates of the images are correct.
I tried to solve the problem by deinstalling the program and related files in "Roaming" and "program files" and installing the program again.
But is did not solve the problem.
And of course I changed the settings to normal.
I think that I will have to accept it.

Thanks for your answors and help.

If you want you can send the whole track to Maybe I will see something.
