Scroll through map using arrow keys, +, -, and CTRL, SHIFT

In the 'webinstall' version of BT747 the mapping code was updated and allows scrolling through the map using the arrow keys.

Using either CTRL or SHIFT while scrolling will make scrolling go faster and pressing both even faster.

The plus (+) and minus (-) keys can be used to zoom in or out.


BT747 can geotag your JPG pictures

BT747 "Desktop" can geotag your JPG pictures and show your track on a map without needing to open another application.

To GeoTag: drag and drop your files to BT747. Then on the 'Files to Tag' tab, do 'Tag from File' and to write back the information to JPG files, do 'Save Tagged Files'. You can adjust the time offset vs. UTC using the 'Time Zone' setting on the same tab.

The interface for this will be improved over time. The tagging works for me and it is what I use.

You can also drag and drop already tagged pictures and see their positions on the map.


Map integration in BT747

BT747 (development version) now integrates a map interface. It can show tracks and waypoints.
This will currently help you to finetune the filtering or simply to get a rough idea of the tracks that you logged.


Defining Waypoint Types

I am in the process of adding geotagging capability to BT747. This means that in the near future, BT747 will be able to place JPG files on the map and later on put the geoinformation in the JPG files.

I will introduce the notion of 'tag type' or rather convert the notion of 'rcr' or 'Record Reason' into tag type (or tag for simplicity).
