Color-code the Activity map based on speed, elevation change, or power output

Instead of a blue line to show the route covered, it would be cool to have a multi-colored line that could show speed, elevation, and power output gradients. For example, if speed was the category selected, blue would be a relatively slower pace and red would be a relatively faster pace based on the overall or average pace of the entire ride. If you selected the elevation category, you could see where the steepest climbs were on a route. This could eliminate need for a terrain map, as the color changes would show gradients. I understand this can all be seen on the computer. It would be neat for mobile.

  • I would especially like to see this for speed. This kind of colored line of speed I find really insightful and gives a better overview of where I went slow or parts where I can be proud I went so fast.

    Do you think this is something that you would consider implementing? 
    Both in the Strava app, or at least on the Strava site?

    Thanks a lot!

  • I never heard back about any developments for this topic. I still think it would be very useful and informative while viewing the route on a 2D map. It would be especially beneficial for people planning to do a route for the first time, if they were able to review another riders completed route.

  • Yeah there's a missed opportunity here. You can have colour coding for various data points, from speed, to power, to altitude, etc. Would be an awesome visualisation.

  • It would take work to produce, but the data and algorithm should be there. Glad other people are interested, too. Would still like to see this done.

  • I'm considering switching from Runtastic to Strava, and am only testing it out.

    Runtastic has this feature, and I would really miss it.

  • @Kyle, Me too. I have more friends on Strava and Runtastic doesn't provide sync with Stava currently. But this is the best feature of Runtastic, I often use it not just for speed but by heart rate to see where I have been slacking or pushing too hard.

  • I switched from Runtastic to Strava (my watch won't sync with Runtastic), and this is something I REALLY miss.

    Please consider adding this in to the standard Strava functionality.
