Personal Heatmaps

Strava subscribers can create personal heatmaps to visualize the ground they've covered worldwide.

To view a heatmap from the Strava website:

  • From the Strava website, open the Dashboard tab and click on Heatmaps.
  • Use the main sport type selector to pick a sports group you would like to view the heatmap for. The following sports types will be included in each grouping:
    • All: all your activities
    • Ride: Ride, Handcycle, Wheelchair, Velomobile, E-Bike Ride, Mountain Bike Ride, Gravel Bike Ride, E-Mountain Bike Ride, Skateboard
    • Run: Run, Rock Climbing, Trail Run
    • Walk: Walk
    • Hike: Hike
    • Water: Swim, Kitesurf, Windsurf, Kayaking, Rowing, Stand Up Paddling, Surfing, Canoeing, Sailing
    • Winter: Alpine Ski, Ice Skate, Backcountry Ski, Nordic Ski, Snowboard, Snowshoe
  • Personal Heatmap drop-down menu. You can click the down arrow next to the personal heatmap button to further customize your heatmap.
    • Choose whether you'd like to view all of your activities or activities from a specific year.
    • You can control whether or not you'd like to include activities with privacy controls set to "only you," hidden portions of your activities, or activities tagged as commutes.
    • Select which color heat your activities create.
  • The Personal Heatmap is now visible alongside the Global Heatmap. You can toggle one or both of these on to view your activity heat alongside heat created by the global Strava community. To learn more about the Global Heatmap, click here.

On the mobile app, you can overlay your heatmap on the map found on the Maps tab. Select the setting icon in the upper right-hand corner of the Maps tab.
