    Ok, since I can't compete on coverage, here's my map anew with 100% more pointless animation!

    (Some bugginess may ensue. Dragging the map causes my clones to get lost. People view similar pages have experienced dizziness, upset stomachs, and sudden death. Call your doctor immediately if you sprout extra appendages.)

    isn't riding that many bikes at once illegal?

    Thought I'd revive this thread with a new Strava data/map viewing tool that I came across:

    http://veloviewer.com

    More data than mapping, but a nice way to see things with different data cuts.

    I just spent a few more minutes playing with it and **wow** there is a lot you can do with the data. Different graphs of Elev/Speed/Relative to KOM..export to CSV...etc. Very very cool.

    Took me a couple tries to get all the files imported, but once I got the data loaded, I was also quite impressed with all the analytics you can do.

    I'll definitely be using this to check out which segments I'm 2nd place on, for now.

    Yeah it takes awhile to load all your ride data etc. The Strava API isn't exactly fully featured from what I've read. This is like a giant arms race. Especially seeing the number of seconds and % behind KOM time.

    I saw this last week and didn't tell anyone.

    Just a word to the wise, I tried this and some of the data was inaccurate. Under the segments tab, I sorted the segment data by "position score" and for some segments I did in Central Park this past summer it had me near the tippy top. This was a little strange because I did that ride in full tourist mode on a Bike and Roll bike with my friend and our two kids. I went back to Strava, looked up the ride and sure enough, Veloviewer had my rank in the two digits when it should have been in the four digits for each of those segments. The relative few others that I spot checked were accurate.

    Also, it makes no distinction between male/female, so it doesn't reflect that I have a few QOMs. The best I get is three segments where I am #2, I guess of all comers.

    Agreed, I found some inaccurate data and some poorly labeled/unlabled data too ( took me a while to figure out that I *have not* ridden 2500 miles since August, only 2500 *kilometers*)

    BTW, were you riding down L Street Cycle track this morning around 9-ish. Chrome bag and panniers on the road bike?

    If I was yelling at and getting yelled at (and later flipped off) by a guy with a minivan parked fully blocking the cycletrack, that was me. Hope it was amusing.

    P.S. I don't usually carry that much stuff -- I had a lot I had to bring in today.

    I didn't catch the minivan interaction - I'm pretty sure I saw you at L and 21st. I was already done with my commute and walking on the sidewalk in my 'civies'

    I finally got around to making a Heatmap out of some of my downloaded Veloviewer-strava data. Basically, I wanted to see, at a glance, how my rides looked on a diurnal and annual basis - what time of day and through the year.

    I've only been using Strava since July 24, 2012 so I have a limited data set to work with, but now that I have the structure in place, I can add to it periodically. I was also home with the little one 1 1/2 - 2 days each week through December so my weekday commuting numbers are pretty inconsistent.

    So the image shows you all the 15-minute increments when I was riding, each day, from 7/24/2012 through 1/7/2013. So each row is one day, and each column is a 15 minute increment, starting at midnight on the left and going through the day to 11:45PM at the far right.

    Some of you may have seen a similar one I did for CaBi ridership a year or so ago. (That one's a lot more interesting, IMO)

    No surprises for my heatmap. As I go through 2013 I would like to push some rides out towards the boundaries (ie. Really early/really late rides) and fill in the middle (lunchtime Hains Point laps!) Unfortunately, I don't have a way to breakdown the distance traveled per 15-minute increment other than based on the average speed/distance for that ride...if I figure out some way to do it, I could color code the cells to show when I rode fast vs. slow.

    Getting the data from the Strava CSV file into this format was a pain in the ass. I work with electric interval data quite frequently and produce similar graphics for electricity consumption (like this one), but the Strava data took a lot of work to get into that layout. Also, for some reason, for the first 4 months, Strava told me that all my rides started 4 hours later than they actually did! Finally, moving from Excel, to PPT to PDF to Google Docs means the images kept losing resolution, so it doesn't look great - I'm not getting a gold star for pretty, that's for sure.
