    Great episode. I thought it was really interesting (and admirable) that FATMAP was trying to configure the algorithms to try and disperse use and not “promote” trails/routes that are the most popular (and thus being the most impacted).

    I was waiting to hear discussion about inaccuracies of elevation gain, but only heard about mileage inaccuracy. Any experiences on that? Elevation gain can be an important factor in estimating the effort needed for a section.

    I’ve noted some drastically poor results (tested on graded public roads to reduce “noise” effects) from GaiaGPS on this and the company appears to acknowledge the weakness, but there isn’t much hope for improvement. I guess it’s more profitable to add “features” than improve quality because they already have your subscription.
