Gradient in track graph
The gradient in the track graph is not very accurate IMHO.
E.g.: While already being on a flat surface after a climb, the gradient is still in a positive value. And already negative before the next descent.
I add a series of 5 screendumps to illustrate.
- At 295m top of climb is reached at 1380m. Gradient shows +3.6%. A flat part of about 125m follows. Nowhere in the graph there is a 0% gradient stretch.
- At 320m, gradient is still at +2.4%.
- At 351m it is still at +1.1%.
- At 378m the graph finally crosses at 0%.
- At 409m it is already at -1.3%.
I understand that calculating a gradient is done by averages but it is not logical for a hiker to see no 0% part in the graph for the example while there is such a stretch of 125m. The following track points are on this 'flat' surface:Point 17 on distance 291m at 1380m altitude
- Point 18 on 301m at 1383m
- Point 19 on 316m at 1381m
- Point 20 on 397m at 1382m
- Point 21 on 409m at 1382m
- Point 22 on 419m at 1382m
- Point 23 on 427m at 1382m
