GBTimelapse & GBTPi

FTP Upload Examples

Sierra View Country Club

GBTPi runs every day looking down the first hole of this golf course. It captures an image every 12 seconds from five minutes after sunrise to five minutes before sunset. At the end of the day it creates a time-lapse video of the day's activity. It operates every day except Monday when the club is closed.

It uploads an image every ten minutes to this website using FTP. Below is a recent image.

GBTPi operates much like a DVR by deleting the oldest images when storage is nearly full. In this case the Pi's 32GB SD card can hold the previous 22 days of images.

Below is a time-lapse video from a recent day.
