About GPS Heatmaps
With the rise of GPS-activity trackers, runners, cyclists and quantified-self enthusiasts now have a wealth of data available to themselves. These tools can give you fantastic insights into your training performance, but sometimes you just want to look at a pretty map of where you've been. And that's where GPS Heatmaps comes in.
GPS Heatmaps is a tool for turning your GPX or TCX activity files into visual maps. GPX is an industry-standard format for sharing your activity data, and there are tools available to export from most services to GPX. GPS Heatmaps creates beautiful point-maps of your data, with nothing to distract or detract from the raw data. Roads become visible only as you run them, landmarks and common paths glow white-hot with continued use.
