<div>Playing devil's advocate: What about the creative expression of the user to move the GPS receiver in a specific pattern in order for the device to generate said statistics? How is that different from, say, moving a stylus over a graphics tablet in order to draw a picture? Surely the result generated in that way are also "raw data" (especially in a vector drawing package).
