One one of the neat perks of Nokia aquiring Trolltech was that we all got cool new phones. Most chose the neato n95, which is effectively a camera with calling functionality. It takes great quality pictures, and thanks to its internal GPS, is able to geo-tag the photos with the coordinates of where it was taken. The question then of course is what will you do with all these photos and their metadata? A couple of KDE apps make it possible to view a selected photo on a map, but I wanted more. Enter Trippy!
Trippy uses Marble and Exiv2 to grab the GPS coordinates and timestamps from photos, and then pinpoint them on a map, drawing lines to "connect" the photos. The currently selected photo/route shows up as a red dot/line. The result is minimalistic application that focuses on just loading a directory of photos, and getting an overview of your journey and easily viewing the memories from it.
Currently it's hosted on Github:
Usecase? Here's how my summer vacation looked:
Enjoy, and don't hesitate to fork on Github! ;)
