Geotagging a point of interest inside panorama

1. How to Geotag inside an image or a video

One of the most powerful features in OcuMap is geotagging. You can geotag objects inside a GPS-video or a GPS image. To geotag a point in a video,

  • Pause the video at the location where the POI must occur, or click on the image you want to geotag a feature in.
  • Click the add hotspot icon in the bottom right.
  • Place the cursor at the location of interest
  • Click
  • A dialogue box will appear asking you to name the POI. Give it a name.
  • As an option, you can insert a URL to associate it with the POI.
  • You can also change the color of the POI in this same dialogue box.
  • Click Save
  • You will see a green icon is shown inside the image and a pin is placed on the map for the POI.

if for some reason you are not happy with the location of the POI on the map and would like to change it,  click and drag the pin on the map to the desired location, OcuMap will then grab the coordinates from the basemap and update the POI position accordingly.

2. Adding multiple fields within the POI

Unlimited data fields can be logged in a single POI by simply adding a comma after each field. For example, to tag an electric pol and fields for who will be responsible for maintaining it, do the following:

  • In the dialogue box, name field, type: Electric Pol, John, Feb 25, Maint. Dpt.
  • Click save.
  • Lock the location of the POI by clicking the cursor anywhere inside the image.
  • Now your POI will have 4 fields and can be viewed as separate columns inside the exported CSV file. See Downloading the POI data file for more information.

3. Navigating to your POI

You can access the previously tagged POIs directly from the map. Alternatively, you can click on the project folder in the side menu and expand the list of  “Hotspots” below each video or image. tab, click on the folder where the POI was taken and select the POI you are trying to navigate to. OcuMap will take you directly to that location in the video file and on the map.

4 Downloading the POI data file

POIs can be locally downloaded as a CSV file by clicking on the export option the is located in the media player tab. The CSV file will have all the fields you initially input in the POI dialogue box + the GPS coordinates in WGS84
