@chris-little Thanks for [your comments in #1130](https://github.com/w3c/sdw/issues/1130#issuecomment-511751960), which raise a couple of points.

WebVMT is designed to store the original values in the file, so no reverse calculation would be required. Interpolation schemes are defined in the [data model](https://w3c.github.io/sdw/proposals/geotagging/webvmt/#datamodel) to ensure consistent interpretation, though intermediate values are not explicitly recorded in the file. For example:

````
NOTE Interpolate cam1 position from (0.3, 51.1) to (0.2, 51.5) over 1 minute

00:00:00.000 -->
{"moveto": {"lat": 51.1, "lng:" 0.3, "path": "cam1"}}
{"lineto": {"lat": 51.5, "lng": 0.2, "path": "cam1", "end": "00:01:00.000"}}
````

Data should be sampled at a sufficiently high rate and resolution to accurately represent the characteristics of interest. For example, taking one photo per minute of a football match will give a fair record of who played, but not of who scored. The purpose of interpolation is not to 'fix' poor quality data, which is why I'm interested in identifying valid use cases.

Is there a drone/wind use case where an interpolation scheme would add legitimate value to the data, rather than just masking a quality issue? This could make a case for including suitable features, but my concern is that the underlying problem is out of scope.

Finally, there is nothing to prevent users applying their own interpolation scheme, which is not included in the specification, if they believe it will add value to their own use case.
