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.
  • Pick a sports group you would like to view the heatmap for. The following sports types will be included in each grouping:
    • Ride: Ride, Handcycle, Wheelchair, Velomobile, E-Bike Ride
    • Run: Run, Walk, Hike, Rock Climbing
    • Water: Swim, Kitesurf, Windsurf, Kayaking, Rowing, Stand Up Paddling, Surfing, Canoeing
    • Winter: Alpine Ski, Ice Skate, Backcountry Ski, Nordic Ski, Snowboard, Snowshoe, Winter Sport
  • 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 one," hidden portions of your activities, or activities tagged as commutes.

You can overlay your personal heatmaps on the map found in the Maps tab of the Strava mobile app.

  • Select the setting icon in the upper right-hand corner from the Maps tab.

  • Tap Edit next to "My Heatmap" to customize the heatmap overlay.
    • By default, the heatmap will include all sport-types. Tap on the sports dropdown menu to specify which sport(s) to include.
    • Choose whether you’d like to view all of your activities from a custom date range or activities from a specific year.
    • Choose the color of your "heat."
    • You can control whether or not you'd like to include activities with privacy controls set to "only one," hidden portions of your activities, or activities tagged as commutes.
  • Select the "X" icon to return to the overall map settings.
  • Check the box next to "My Heatmap" and select the "X" icon to return to the map.

You can only see your heatmaps. There is no way to export or share your heatmaps from the Strava website; however, you may capture your screenshots using your device’s built-in screen capture functionality.
