Heatmap changes

GuyBeels

What have you done to Heatmaps?  I do not care about businesses, or where other people have run, walked, or biked, and the new color selection interface does not allow basemap changes from the same interface (as it should).  Also, as I zoom out, the once-useful aggregation of workouts (showing a circle and number at scales where the actual paths get tiny and useless) is now gone.  Writing this as a cartographer, recent changes are not an improvement.  Is there a way to recover the old display mode?

Heatmap used to display total activity count in different countries/regions/cities on the map, this feature was great to track your activities around the world. Now you need to zoom-in exact location, and then it shows-up in the heatmap (and still doesn't show the count).

Could you please bring back this feature from before?
Thanks

This feature is called the activity clusters. I've just created this topic under the new idea suggestions, please send kudos/support here: https://communityhub.strava.com/t5/ideas/add-back-the-activity-clusters-to-heatmaps/idi-p/27182

The more the kudos/support there, the more likely and sooner it will be implemented.

When I click that link, it brings me back to this thread, is that right? Or is there a new thread we should be voting on?

The heatmap update is so bad I am considering after >5yrs cancelling my subscription.   

Likewise. They have until it expires this summer to bring it back. No idea why they have changed it.

Yes, please bring back activity clusters to heatmaps. As someone who travels frequently it was one of my favorite features. Now it's next to impossible to find the various activities I've logged throughout North America and Europe.

The heatmap is one of my favourite features however I agree that the recent changes are a massive down grade. When zoomed out you no longer can see all the countries easily that you have covered and it takes a lot of zooming in before you even can see the activity. The old numbers were a great locator of where you have been but now you have to rely on memory to see where you have been. Please bring back the number count!!
