The geoProject format is the ideal way to deliver an interactive and immersive deliverable to your client. (Click here for more on geoProjects.)
However, to offer that type of functionality, requires software as there are millions of lines of code behind the scene that make that all work together.
If you are using the Remote GeoSystems geoProject format for the deliverable, then your client will need some sort of version of LineVision Basic edition or higher to view the save geoProject deliverable.
Since we do offer the monthly plans, so you could subscribe for your client and turn off their subscription for the months that its is not being used.
Alternatively you could create screen capture of the LineVision running if you just needed to send your client a movie. There are also the automated reports that be be exported in Excel and Word file formats as well as mission plans that can be exported as KML files. But again, the map interactivity with video requires the LineVision software currently.

The 1st row MUST be the following:
LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, ALTITUDE, UTCTIME, SPEED, COURSE
From there, each additional row just needs to be the corresponding values.
You can download the Simple CSV file format example by clicking on the document title below.
To load a single geotagged video to LineVision go to File > Open Video then navigate to Windows folder where you downloaded the geotagged video AND GPS “companion” or “sidecar” files. This should load up the video and play with the clickable GPS track on the map.
