Updates for April 25th

Here are some "new" features in GPSLog Labs that I hadn't had a chance to post about yet:

  • The Tag Activity Feed is a list of completed and projected distance milestones for each tag, such as completing 1000 km (or miles):

    The projections are computed with a Monte Carlo simulation based on your logged activity. The graph shows your cumulative distance and the range of likely outcomes, with the projected date taken at the median.

    A selection of these milestones may be displayed on the home page below the activity table to let you know of targets you have recently completed or will hit soon.

  • The log detail page now shows the longest best effort at the top of the page:

    This lets you see at a glance how well the activity compares to others with the same tag and on the same route, and you can click through to view the other distances on the Comparisons tab.

  • The Virtual Race allows you to see the result of a hypothetical race between all your efforts for a particular set of tags.

    You can find the Virtual Race tab on the tag detail page, and there you can select a distance and a target time or speed and the relative positions of each effort as the benchmark effort crosses the "finish line" will be shown.

  • The activity table details section has a cleaner layout:

  • Activity notes popups have been expanded to show more details, and you can now have more than one open at a time:

  • The Log File detail page has a new Itinerary tab, and the Itinerary tabs throughout the site have a nicer, cleaner layout:

  • Also, I've fixed some problems that occurred when uploading zip files with non-English file names.

Updates for October 17th

The last few months have seen some minor updates to GPSLog Labs and a bunch of major heart rate logging related features that will be in a post of their own.

  • "Race results". This is a new visualisation available on the Best Efforts tab for Tags and Routes.
    It takes the best efforts at a given distance from all of your activity and shows a "photo finish" of where each log would be as the "winner" crossed the line.
    Choose the distance to be compared by clicking on the column headings of the best efforts table.
    Some of the results may be collapsed so the chart doesn't take up too much space.
  • Together with the "Race results" there's also a histogram of Average Speed/Pace.
    It's actually a few histograms overlayed, the darkest bars are the count from the last few months, the lightest the count for all time. This means you can see if there's a pattern to your recent activity that differs from the rest.
  • The Uploaded log file page has a new tab, Edit Activity (junk hidden) that lets you edit the places & tags without being distracted by the junk segments and merge points.
  • There's a new "Remove Stops" filter to clean up maps of hikes or walks where otherwise there would be too many stop markers.
    This is a bit of a hack, but it allows you to filter out stops which are shorter than the threshold. Unfortunately it does that by substituting a speed of 1km/h during the stop, which will mess with the average speed stats, so this filter should only be used where those stats are not too important.
  • The Tag map now has an option to show log colours "By route" or "By direction". Choosing "By route" can help find logs that may have been mis-classified or to find logs that could be grouped together into a new route.
