What do the variables in the CSV file export stand for?

Hello,

I trying to figure out what some of the variables in the CSV file export stand for:

- pos: this is an ID

- lat: latitude

- lon: longitude

- alt: altitude (in meter?)

- time: time of point (in which timezone is the data exported?)

- speed: speed (what is the unit?)

- bearing: (what does it mean? what is the unit?)

- acc: accuracy (what does it mean? what is the unit?)

- heartRate: heart rate in bpm (beats per minute)

Cadence, temperature, strides, speed_sensors and custom_coords do contain data in my export, but are also less relevant.

Thanks for your time!

Best,

Lars

Hello Lars,

thanks for asking. Not sure, but CSV support is not well described in our manual, so your question makes sense.

All parameters are always exported in basic SI units, like meters, seconds, degrees.

So additional information to parameters:

- time: timezone should be included in the time as the last value

- bearing: orientation of the device at the moment, the point was recorded

- acc: yes, the accuracy of recorded location

Hi Menion

Thank you for the swift and great response. It answered all my questions. For the record, timezone recording is in UTC and the unit for "speed" is in m/s.
