I am trying to update distance traveled between GPS coordinates. My error is that the GPS can move short distances while sitting still. I am currently simply adding the new coordinates to a list every second, calculating the distance between this second and last second, then appending the distances to a new list then add them all together.
The issue is that the small movements in distance keep accumulating. Does anyone know the proper way to do this?
self.breadcrumbs =  #Calc Linear Distance GPS while 1: report = gpsp.get_current_value() #Retrieves GPS Values try: self.lat = report.lat self.lon = report.lon self.latlon = (self.lat, self.lon) #Put lat lon into tuple self.breadcrumbs.append(self.latlon) #Append lat lon to breadcrumb list breadcrumb_distances =  #Holds distances between latlon data points for i, b in enumerate(self.breadcrumbs): current_location = b last_location = self.breadcrumbs[i - 1] miles = geodesic(current_location, last_location).miles feet = miles * 5280 #convert to feet breadcrumb_distances.append(feet) cumulative_distance = round(sum(breadcrumb_distances),2) print(cumulative_distance) except Exception as e: print(e) sleep(1)
