I have a large number of tracks in Gaia, and I want the ability to see some simple reporting/statistics, as well as a quick way to download many tracks for some period of time (for backup or import into another tool, for example). The ability to file tracks into folders and view stats and download data for the whole folder helps, but I believe the enhancements below would significantly improve the flexibility:
1) If there was the ability to add tracks to multiple folders (i.e., more of a tagging than foldering approach), that would add a lot more flexibility. The big advantage is that you could set tags up for several different ways you want to look at your track data, without having to undo it.
2) If the current folder view could be enhanced to allow you to view all tracks by date range and folder (or 'tag'), and see cumulative stats and download data, that would prevent having to set up folders or tags to represent time periods.
3) In the overalls stats for the folder (or "tag"), add the number of tracks in the view.
Say, I having numerous recorded tracks from my hikes, along with a handful of uploaded tracks from friends that I have used for planning purposes, and I tag these as separate categories.
I want to quickly check some stats on number of hikes, total miles, total EG for various time periods (months, quarters, etc.). I then want to expand that time period to view all of 2017, and then download a GPX with all of my personal recorded tracks. I want the uploaded tracks excluded from both the stats and the downloaded data.
The 3 changes I described would let me accomplish this very easily.
