> Since then the development ceased completely and the code, as it is,

> Or is there any external code possibly doing what's needed?
> Or really nobody does videomapping anywhere?
> True, I could cut the video apart to images at given intervals and
> geotag them but then I'd lose 97% (29/30) of the recorded data. (Even
> the sound track but I could live without it, and there seem to be an
> audio sync plugin for JOSM - I have never tried.)
> Any help or input would be appreciated.
> Thanks,
