What if we could see our current achievments on the map with colors? For example, KOM segment may be highlighted with "gold" color 🙂
Was inspired from rider Kat Gurenkova who takes almost all the segments with QOM.Thanks for your work!
Depending on the size of the segment, and how big the activity is, it could potentially be impossible to see the segment highlighted on the map. Just something to think about
I take your propousal seriously and I am trying to imagine such a situation.In my hamble opinion it will be very pleasant to see small golden pixel on my long ride track 🙂By the way if the ride consists KOM||QOM it often will mean that consuming of enegry was high and the distance had natural limitations in this case.In my practice of KOM achieving, usually, the KOM segment has proportional length to the entire distance.
For example this is Kat Gurenkova ride НедоВоронеж | Ride | Strava full of gold.Below you can see this ride with QOMs highlighted somehow.We could use zoom to see the details.I've asked Kate about this feature and she was joyful about the idea.So if developers take this into their backlog, that will be very cool!What do you think?
Thanks for submitting your idea. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting. I'd like to also point out a similar existing idea:
Segment /KOM/QOM territories
I like the concept, but I think it would be problematic to put into use. If the segments were spread out or at least end-to-end, it would be good, but in so many cases, segments are overlapping each other all over the place. Some of the places I ride, a given portion of trail would be part of 5 or more different segments. Color coding each one differently based on your placement would just be a blob of color that you wouldn't be able to isolate to a specific segment.
Dear @anchskier , glad to see you like it! Imagine that you see the gold on your track! It will be real happiness! 🙂 Of course, we are not talking about detailed information. All the details you would like to get, you could take from the list of achievements. Isn't it?IMHO this feature will inspire athletes to find new places to mining their gold! 🙂
@jack - If you look at what I wrote, I pointed out that the map would be a total mess due to overlapping segments. Segments rarely are nice end-to-end along a ride like your picture above shows.
@anchskier It seems like a little luck of comprehending. I meant there is no problem if several segments will be overlapped. I think only developers will know about it. For the end user it will be merged into one longer segment. By the way I never saw several overlapped QOM/KOM segments. It rarely occurs, I think. And if you think about the complexity of implantation for this feature, then it will be like an already worked method for ordinary segments. Developers will just calculate supreme points of all overlapped segments. I think this computation is not consumed resources at all. So what's the point of not bringing this to us? Moreover, you like the idea you said!
@jack - I said I liked the concept, but don't see how it would be practically implemented. Even if I like the concept of something, I do not necessarily support it if I don't feel it can be implemented without creating more of a mess. If you think it is "rare" that there are overlapping segments, then you must be new to Strava or ride in a very limited area. EVERYWHERE I ride has numerous overlapping segments. Sometimes there are 5 or more covering the same piece of road or trail, all with different starting and stopping points.
