Title: [Q] how to compute average ascending?
Post by: Christian on February 14, 2014, 16:16:59
Is there any possibility to compute the average ascending of a track - or better of a part of a track?
In diagramm there are only absolute values...

Hi Christian,
how you imagine some average ascending?

I'll tell you my plan. Currently "Point screen" is in focus and will be improved to next major version. Then I'll work on track screen. I plan to, hone near future, create a screen where track will be divided for example to 1 km (defined) intervals and Locus display statistics for these intervals. So it will for example display average ascending for every km. Is this what you are looking for?

Locus should be the all-in-wonder-mobile-tool, am i right? Therefore statistic functions are necessary. (Now i have to use GPS-Track-Analyse-6.net for this purpose on my desktop computer)
Hi Christian,
how you imagine some average ascending?
Lets pimp the information and diagram screen.
Locus can analyze the track and divide it into parts where min and max altitude are significant different. see attachement alt1.png

When tapping on a piece of a divided part Locus can compute and display values for ascending, altitudes and distance of the track part.

Or

Let the user choose the part he wants to analyze using sliders. But let Locus help the user let the sliders snap primarily to the points to min and max altitude. see attachement alt2.png

Additional in the information screen an abstract of ascending (values of average and max ascending up / down ) of the whole track can be shown.

Statistics became very important to me when planning tours in the alps. It shows wether i can go by bike uphill or not. Carry the bike will take much time more so i have to recalculate the time i need. And so on...

What do you think? It's only an idea and has no priority.

Very nice and interesting idea Christian, thank you!

I've added this to my TODO list https://asammsoftware.atlassian.net/browse/LP-555 , so I'll definitely think about it during summer (sorry too much other work now)

Great :)
Nice to see Locus growing. No hurry pls.
