  • Hi there!

    I like most of the changes and improvements you've made to the new Heatmaps feature, but one thing that used to exist that doesn't anymore is the ability to set a date range for the heatmap. It seems like you all chose to just have "All-Time" and by year, but I'd really like to set a specific Start Date and End Date for my heatmaps. 

    I'm working on a specific running project, and I want to track my progress from a specific date when I started the project up until a specific month. I have about 18 months of screenshots, that show my progress over time, but now I can't do that. :( 

    Please add the ability to set a start date and end date back!

    Thanks!

  • Please integrate the personal heatmap in the Recording map of the strava app (iOS is preferred) so if you are out with bike you could see where you never been.

    Thanks

  • Why there is no 2021 activities in my Heatmap? And why there is no option for seeing this year's activities? Anyone else with the same problem?

  • Please add personal heatmaps to the mobile app (Android)! Would be great to have easy access to it in the same way that the global heatmap is now integrated to mobile, particularly for when I'm out on a run and want to figure out a route with streets I've never been to.

  • I would like there to be a feature (similar to flyby) where you can pick multiple activities (of the same route) and view them on a dynamic map - thereby allowing you to view (live) the multiple times you (or your followers) have done the route and thus compare your performance and see a virtual race when played as an animation.

    This would have the benefit of allowing you to visually compare your (or your friends) historic activities and see how your/their performance is along the route. You could see where you need to improve your performance on a route this way.

    it would be amazing to have playback of virtual races along an identical route.

  • I suggest adding total stats (distance, hours, elevation gain) to the heatmap, maybe as an option. I share the link to my heatmap, and I'd like to have this information shown.

  • I suggest adding a timeline feature that allows athletes to see the progression of their heatmap over a selected time period. An animation like FlyBy's would be a good starting point.

    Also, a feature that could calculate the percentage of public roads traveled within a city's limits would also be awesome. This is a project I am currently working on.

  • I'd like the ability to share heatmaps with other Strava users if I grant permission. When doing running / MTB groups, it's helpful to be able to see how familiar athletes are familiar with specific areas. It makes planning less arduous. Honestly, it also makes it less likely someone will exaggerate their experience and try something over their head, which can be dangerous for mountain biking.
