I always record GPS traces of my cycle expeditions, as well as often recording videos, so when I go somewhere interesting I like to combine the two when I get back home. After coming across Stamen’s beautiful watercolour maps, I knew that I had found the missing ingredient. My process now is twofold, I use a Python script to retrieve the map and plot the GPS trace to an image, then I overlay and animate the images in a video editor. I have tried to write a guide that will be easy to follow for both the novice python programmer as well as the novice video editor.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
