Exactly what it say, i guess. The frequency (refresh rate) the camera get/save in file its position* in the world.

*(theorically, at least... Because in fact, don't know about Hero7 but with Hero8 it's just a big fail)

Here's the official documentation on the telemetry data: https://github.com/gopro/gpmf-parser

And here one of the apps I use the data with it (you can exctract the GPS data and check the rate yourself): https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free/
