    Collector could be useful for mapping trails, pathways, crew routes, or other line-based features which are created by following the route of a person, bicycle, vehicle or aircraft/drone.  Functionality could be similar to standard GPS data collectors and would be useful on smartphones.


    Consider making a line-based location tracking layer available with frequent location capture intervals (1, 2, 5, 10, 30 seconds?).  Ideally the user could start recording a new feature, add attributes (a name for the route, type of route, etc.), and the software would capture the time and elevation or other attributes at every vertex. The default symbology would be especially helpful if the line included direction arrows. The capability could be used for trail mapping, asset data collection, crew management, traffic congestion travel time runs...
