Video Position

VisualEdit Professional automatically creates and uses a data table called "Video Position". This table has columns for Date, Time, Easting, Northing, Depth, KP, and DCC and is designed to hold position information for the point on which an ROV's cameras are focused.  When watching a video (or three) in VisualEdit the Video Position table will answer the question "Where is that thing that I am looking at in the video?".

The Video Position table should be filled in during data processing by using the Apply Offset script, or by repeated use of the Copy Field script to populate Easting, Northing, Depth etc.  KP and DCC can either be copied, or can be calculated directly from the Easting and Northing.
