Does anyone have a Dashware profile/tool for APM:Copter or APM:Plane?

Dashware looks to be a pretty nice tool for overlaying telemetry/log data onto HD video.

It was recently acquired by GoPro and is now free to download and use.

It doesn't have built-in support for APM log files for some reason, only through something called "flytrex".

There are a few videos on youtube where people say they used their own method to convert APM logs to Dashware data (it can operate on .CSV files) so It should be pretty straight-forward, but I don't want to spend a bunch of time on this if someone else already has a tool or script.

Please share if you know where such a thing is available.

This should be interesting.

I use Dashware with Flytrex, and I have never tried overlaying my LOG / Bin files from my Pixhawk.  I experimented a little with opening the file in Excel and parsing out the data I wanted from the GPS data lines.


looking for the same thing

me too....

I haven't tried it, but I think this may be just what we're looking for:

tried...but it give an error

python "logapm.bin" -f test.csv -m GPS -m ATT -m NTUN -m CTUN -m MODE -m CURR

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 154, in
File "", line 79, in _main
(columns, rows) = parser.process(filename)
File "", line 116, in process
File "", line 187, in __parseMsgDescr
raise Exception("Unsupported format char: %s in message %s (%i)" % (c, msg_name, msg_type))
Exception: Unsupported format char: d in message GRAW (171)

Try a log file instead of a bin.

Using a .log file, the output is an empty file :(

I was able to use the gpx file created by mission planner as an input to dashware, it worked but has very less info, just speed, altitude and total flight pattern, I've seen videos on youtube where people have managed to put more info from the dataflash log or bin file

I've found this:

seems to work (but only with older logs).

Here the page where i've found the script:

thanks but, yeah this isn't working for recent data logs of Pixhawk, can anyone please modify this to work with newer logs

I also found this but don't know how to use it

any help to run this code would be highly appreciated

Thanks in advance

I used it yesterday, with BIN file from Iris+ (APM 3.2.1).
You need python installed first, than look at the readme file for command sample
That will create a .csv file from your .bin
Copy the xml files in your C:\Users\xxx\Documents\DashWare\DataProfiles
Launch Dashware, you have now access to APM data format when you import data file.
