  tracks, track segments and track points.

gpxls -f -e track.gpx

  Display full information of the track.gpx file: the waypoints, routes, route points, 
  tracks, track segments and track points. Display for the track points also the
  calculated bearing and speed.

gpxjson

  Display the result of the simplification of the track.gpx after using the distance threshold,
  no GPX-file is written to standard output.

gpxsim -x 1 track.gpx

  Simplify the track.gpx file using the Douglas-Peucker algorithm. All points with a cross track
  distance of less than 1 metre are removed. The resulting GPX-file is written to standard output.

   -h, --hours=HOURS       the hours offset for the time of the photos

Geo tag the photos with the GPX-files, based on the time of the photos and the geopositions in the GPX-files.

Note: the tool expects the gpx extension for the GPX-files and the jpeg or jpg extension for the photo files.
      Other extensions are ignored.

Examples:

gpxgeotag track.gpx *.JPG

  by 60 seconds before matching.

Requirements:

  • Exiv2 for setting the photo metadata.
