General Improvements:

  • The Time Preferences have been simplified. The Auto-Fix Time Offsetbutton, the Always Auto-Fix Time Offsetbutton, and the Time Offsetfield have all been removed. These have been replaced with a Time Bias The Time Bias allows you to fine-tune the synchronization of the video with the drone’s map position. In most cases this can be left at ‘0’ seconds.

DroneViewer displays your GPS-enabled GoPro and drone videos in a whole new way! 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. There are many other features in the software which are detailed on our website (http://mydroneviewer.com). The free version is fully-functional and allows the loading of up to 1 video at a time.

DroneViewer 1.1.2 released for Mac and Windows

We are pleased to announce that DroneViewer 1.1.2 is now available on our website and has the following new enhancements:

New Features:

  • Added compatibility with the SRT files produced by the DJI Mavic 2 Pro using firmware version 01.00.0200. Note that altitude data is missing from the SRT file, so altitude graphs are not available. Hopefully, DJI will update its SRT file format to include altitude in the future.
  • The Registered version will now display up to 66 minutes of GoPro lat/lon/alt data. Previously, the Registered version would only show 1 minute of GoPro data.

Bug Fixes:

  • Improved synchronization between video and data.

DroneViewer 1.0.1 released for Mac and Windows

DroneViewer displays your DJI drone videos in a whole new way! While your movie is playing you can see your drone’s position on a Google Map. You can geotag key positions in the video and jump back to them instantly. You can click on your route in the Map View to jump immediately to that point in the movie. You can export portions of your videos to separate clips, or export just a single geotagged frame. DroneViewer has multiple views including graphs of your drone’s speed, altitude, distance, and bearing. Imperial and metric units are supported. Best of all DroneViewer runs on both Mac and Windows computers and is compatible with the Mavic Pro, Phantom 4 series, Phantom 3, and Phantom 2 with FlyTrex Core 2 data logger.

Version 1.0.1 has the following updates:

New Features:

  • Added compatibility with Phantom 4 Pro v2, which embeds its GPS data inside the movie file itself. Note that Video Caption must be enabled in the Go App for this to occur. Earlier Phantom 4 Pro drones (and possibly Inspire2 drones), which also store their SRT data in the movies, may work as well although I haven’t tested them.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed bug in which consecutive movies recorded at significantly different times would not update the cursor correctly.
  • Fixed bug in which SRT data points stored at greater than 1 Hz were not loaded properly.
