smoothing gps plots
this is probably impossible to implement in a way that would please everyone or even someone but a method of asking strava to automatically clean-up an uploaded gps plot to track to the actual road you were riding rather than the hallucination the device records is what is wanted here.
justification: i have a garmin 500 that has been getting progressively less able to find my actual location and results in plots that show me meandering through people's backyards or up impossible canyons metres away from the road i was on. there have been a number of times where i've ridden a course where there's a segment i was expecting to find only to learn that my plot was beyond strava's threshold of deviation. the support folks will connect that plot for you if you ask, but that can't scale very well. better to provide an automated smoothing for latitude and longitude just as is done for elevation.
if it's optional, nobody will get mad. if it's as wrong as the plot generated by the device, well at least you have a choice of one of two hilariously inaccurate plots to boast about.
this obviously wouldn't work for off-road riding or running but again, if it's optional ....
