Pointer for the geo geeks among us.

Y’all know Strava published their Global Heatmap page back in 2015. Very cool, very interesting, and very useful. I relied on it to get up to speed locally when I first moved to Pittsburgh.

They just updated it for the first time. It now summarizes 6x as much data, at 2x the resolution, along with numerous improvements in the data and UI.

Here are links to Strava Global Heatmap page and Global Heatmap blogpost describing the changes.

I’ve only just started exploring, but there’s bound to be a lot of really interesting stuff here. Like who rode all those circles in the Parkview VFD parking lot at the top of Ravine Street?

Finally. I recommend switching the heatmap color to blue, since it will let you see better the lesser-used roads (or maybe my slight color-blindness is impeding this on my end).

The circles are from the Dirty Dozen, no? That’s the new finish for Ravine St, hill #2.
