There are around 10,000 trackpoints which I have used as the basis of
most streets in central Lewisham. There are also a similar number of
trackpoints in Ladywell fields where someone has presumably been playing
football with the GPS receiver logging their movement to high resolution.
Lets consider two activities:
a) Playing football in Ladywell fields with GPS set to max sample rate
b) Systematically cycling the streets of Lewisham , noting road names
and features, at a GPS sample rate adequate for the needs, then sitting
at home, marking in and labeling streets, one-ways, bus lanes.
If a user was to choose one of the two activities, which activity would
yield the highest score in the competition?
