It depends on who saves it and why. While I would hate for the
government to waste my taxpayer dollars to create a mine of this
information, I personally like to save some related information in
the form of GPS tracks. It's so much fun to make a map using that data.
You can see a non-zoomable version half way down this page:
The zoomable "live" version is even more fun.
With the GPS and with the camera fairly accurately time-stamping
photos, I now know where each photo was taken, for example. I can
also review routes and use the history to plan new routes to avoid
But this digresses from sound and audio and especially the
subject...so I changed it.
But, while on the subject of audio, I just installed Samplitude
Version 9 and like most of the changes so far. More later.
