"my precise location in it's config/data file"

Any particular format? Presumably something fairly compact (in "number of bytes" terms)?

"The "-journal" ending implied to me it was sqlite3, but they were images.. Hmm. maps of your location?"

If, hypothetically speaking, I wanted an app to unobtrusively track someone's location, periodically saving/uploading a harmless-looking image (*NOT* something that looks like a map) with the location data hidden in the image using steganography or similar, for later analysis, might be an interesting approach.

Are there any samples of this 256x256 PNG file ? Has anyone looked at the actual contents?
