So i successfully generated the data as .csv, .json, .kml and .gpx files. But how can i use it in After Effects to create my own charts? I'm really an advanced AE user, but not good at coding. What is needed to convert the data into After Effects keyframes?
Simply loading the .json file into AE only gives me hundreds of data sets below my layer, but no keyframes.
Thank's for your help.

At the moment I cannot spend time explaining how the process works. It's pretty complex (as using the data in After Effects was experimental). The only way I know of achieveng this is by using the Processing sketch ( https://github.com/JuanIrache/gyrocam ). It analyses the extracted CSV and creates additional CSV files that you can copy and paste (its contents) on After Effects layers. You won't need to do real coding, just adapt the basic values (framerate,frame size...) to what you filmed and the results you expect. There was some discussion on how to do this here, but unfortunately most of it is in Spanish: https://github.com/JuanIrache/gyrocam/issues/2

I just tested the bat with my Hero 7 black and I didn't encounter any big problems. I haven't checked the full integrity of the data, but it seems reasonable.
I didn't get any temperature data it seems.
If it helps, I can provide some sample files. I have a bit of coding experience, but not nearly as much as y'all do. I hope I can help further this project!

I just tried my new 7 Black and I'm surprised at how inaccurate GPS data is. The camera was chest-mounted while riding a motorbike, but I drove for like 20 minutes and there are barely a couple of acceptable locations, let alone anything similar to a track.
Those with experience with GPS-enabled GoPros, is this normal? I was expecting a bit more... this is unusable.

How did you start the recording? Using the one-button start or from standby? I have no problem recording GPS data when I turn the camera on, let it get GPS lock and then record a video but there's never any data in the one-button videos

My first first testvideo only had 0; 0 Coordinates, which is pretty disappointing. I started it first and then recorded. Its was a 10 minute bike ride with the camera on my chest and the GPS should have no problem, as it was in a small suburb.
My second Test was today on the fields, with the camera mounted on my head, the result is not ideal tbh. It lost contact, as soon as I entred the housing, even though there really shouldnt be that much interference. My phone works just fine.
I also have a problem with the codec. I recorded in HEVC instead of H264, when I turned it back to H264, it doesnt seem to register. Might have to test later again.
