Extension for Photo Information in GPX?
I want to record photo information in a GPX file probably as an extension to wptType.
Primarily I want to record the lat/long of the photo but ideally I'd like to include
* Tilt of Camera
* Direction of Camera
Is there an extension around I can reuse(I can't find one)? If not should there be one? Does anyone have any thoughts on what info should be captured?
Thanks in advance for your input
PS: I'm building a cell phone application for recording a hike (for example) along with photos etc for exporting to a GPX or KML file

fields mentioned here:
as useful for photography. Longitude and Latitude are already in GPX,
Don't forget to take a look at the documentation for the EXIF fields
too: they're the opposite: they allow GPS information to encoded
inside a photograph. But which fields they chose to define might help
you decide which fields you want to define.
