Geotag your videos

The latest version of Google Earth added a layer for geotagged YouTube videos. So far, it seems like a lot of people are using this feature for documenting landmarks, attractions and live recordings of things like music, sporting events, backpacking trips, urban skateboarding, etc.

If you have a geospatially relevant video that you want to put on the map, it’s pretty easy. Just upload your video to YouTube, open the “Date and Map Options” tab in the video information panel, and drag the marker to the correct location. You can zoom in to get a more precise location, or just enter the lat/lon manually with the following format: “geo:lat=yy.yyyy geo:lon=xx.xxxx”.

    Try “findstr”, it does Regular Expressions. Part of Windows too :-).

    C:WindowsSystem32findstr.exe -?
    [..]

    Regular expression quick reference:
    . Wildcard: any character
    * Repeat: zero or more occurrences of previous character or class
    ^ Line position: beginning of line
    $ Line position: end of line
    [class] Character class: any one character in set
    [^class] Inverse class: any one character not in set
    [x-y] Range: any characters within the specified range
    x Escape: literal use of metacharacter x
    Word position: end of word

    ack is also a good choice for Windows. It’s pure Perl, uses Perl regular expressions, and is well-supported.

  3. How does this compare to mtr? says:

    How does this program differ from MiniTrue? http://www.student.northpark.edu/pemente/sed/minitrue.htm

    Fart is cool.

    Findstr is a powerfull tool i know. But fart is very handy for certain jobs, for which findstr will take a lengthier command.

    This looks like a nice tool, but a RegEx search and REPLACE command-line utility would be nice (which the above mentioned aren’t). Is there even any (for Windows)? It’s planned for FART based on the info on th SF.net page.
