It would be great to add capture of direction/bearing information to the photo metadata included in photos taken using the camera from an Image widget. Of the things that are captured by the native Camera app, Destination Bearing would really be helpful. Also useful but of lesser priority would be Altitude and HPositioningError. If we at least had Destination Bearing, we could drop a whole directory of image links into GIS and it would automatically locate the photos by their GPS coordinates, and importantly, would create direction arrows to show the direction the photo was taken. Altitude and HPositioningError would be more useful from a quality control/review standpoint, but still helpful. Anyone else think this would be a good addition? There are lots of other reasons why more metadata-rich photos from the Image widget would be awesome, I'm just listing the top reason it'd be helpful for our uses.
