What are the units of measurement in _track.qo

Describing the Units for the JSON fields that have measurements collected by note.add request saved to _track.qo

About Time Stamps

All timestamps are Unix Epoc UTC

What is Journey and JCount?

A journey is a contiguous sequence of GPS location captures that are determined to be part of the same journey or trip between locations.

In the JSON data, journey field is the timestamp the sequence started. This uniquely identifies the journey sequence for a specific Notecard.

The jcount field is the enumeration of GPS location updates stored in _track.qo for a particular journey. The jcount field starts at 1.

These fields are only available if the tracking mode is enabled, and the GPS tracking period is less than 300 seconds (5 minutes).
