comment GeoTIFF world file ignored by QGIS?
In addition to the points made below (gdal ignoring world files if some geo tags are present, gdal/esri disagreeing on pixel edge/centre references), there's no naming standard for world files. Check you're using one that gdal knows about, and avoid using them in the future if you can. I've seen tifw, tiffw, tfw, wld, tiff.wld, …

comment How do I load OSM vector data in QGIS 2.x?

comment How to install GDAL and QGIS on a Raspberry Pi?
If you just want to run command-line gdal tools, stock Raspbian — installed with none of the palaver above — has GDAL 1.9.0 in the repositories. Finding and installing QGIS is harder.

comment Read GeoTIFF file with php or javascript
Are you sure you mean GeoTIFF, and not the location stored in a picture's EXIF tags? You can read the latter with PHP's exif_read_data function. If the file really is a GeoTIFF, this question's a duplicate of How to read GeoTIFF using PHP?.

comment How to build a geographic database of GPS logs?
The user option makes sense for the Drawinglife project, as it allows multiple participants to add their tracks to the same database. Thanks for the hints about excluding the City tagging, and for finding the reasons for the crashes. If you have GPX files without timestamps, you can synthesize the time data using GPSBabel's faketime option.
