GPX-line gradient coloring depending on steepness

NL ms shared this idea 12 months ago

Gpx-line gradient coloring depending on steepness. The steeper the redder.

Use case: to estimate the difficulty of a track (and the amount of time it may take to hike the distance), it would be nice to have a quick glance at the color gradient of the gpx line. A lot of red would indicate that it could be a very intensive track.

coloring is already implemented in Locus.

See the manual:

Or did you mean something different?

Damn! :) How did I miss that!

Thanks for showing me how to enable it! It's awesome!

I'm a very satisfied locusmap user! Thanks for all the great work you all do!


Missed that too, excellent feature that may be too buried away. Works great on my recorded tracks for some dynamic data types like altitude, slope but how do I get it to show heart rate, for example, I do monitor my heart rate while recording tracks via a Garmin watch linked into locus, there is a setting somewhere that is something like, "save data from all sensors". would this need to be enabled?
