A better way to handle bad Segment data, especially elevation data
- Let users hide segments from the segment page (i.e. Actions->hide), don't make users have to go back to the activity page collapse the segment view and then click hide
Hopefully more users will then hide bad segments!
Next suggestion: Focus on getting categorised climbs correct. Incorrect cat climb segments is the worst part of all of this (IMHO) and perhaps just addressing these is sufficient;
- Let users flag incorrect cat'd climbs! (either an option to the existing flag action, or a new action entirely)
- Once a cat-climb segment gets 10 users on it, compare elevation profiles from each users activities (along with map data) to confirm it is a cat climb.
- Run super clever algorithms (I know you can do it!) over all cat climb segments spot outliers (i.e. avg speed to high etc.) and evaluate those.
Most of the above could be extended to all (not just cat climb) segments, but obviously a bit more work etc.
Getting better at the above would be amazing and make the segment explorer so much more useful,
