Computation of elevation gain / loss overestimated in route planning
I have lately noticed that elevation gain and loss computed on Locus route planning are overestimated compared to googlemaps or Komoot computation.
On the GPX attached a 362km in the alps, Google is computing around 6500m of gain , Komoot 7300m and Locus 9036m !
Note that I have applied "Update elevation function" (because I created the route with the web app, it was computing around12000m of elevation..)
To me the difference is significant and impact your decision when your plan such a trip.
Even on small RECORDED trip, e.g. 60km not so hilly, Locus indicates around 600m of vertical gain (again based on the recorded trip with 'update elevation' applied) against 560m as predicted by Komoot and recorded roughly by my garmin computer.
Do you have an explanation?
Does it depend on the Map and associated DEM data?
PS: congrats for the good work by the way I love the app alot.
