Watch your drone videos in a whole new way!
New: Now works with GPS-enabled GoPro HERO cameras!
With DroneViewer you can play your videos on the main screen while watching your drone’s speed, distance, position, and bearing update on graphs, data displays, and maps. You can geotag key points in your route and jump back to them instantly. You can export portions of your videos to separate clips, or export just a single geotagged frame. You can save your route to common file formats such as comma-separated value (CSV), GPS-exchange (GPX), or Google Earth (KML), for further data analysis. Here is a short movie demonstrating some of DroneViewer’s extensive capabilities.
