Improvements to get Bulk Stats and Data Downloads

    Adding those requested features would make the site and app much more user-oriented and useful. I don't know if it is also possible to enhance the editing ability of the tracks, since the trim function is somewhat limited. Sometimes I'd like to be able to examine just a portion of a track.

    Perhaps in the same feature upgrade; being able to download the data from the analyzed tracks (the 2D plots) would allow such partial-track examination.  Currently, the axes are given with odd distances between grid lines (metric converted to imperial, I think), but currently if I want to know at what min:sec I started a hill and what min:sec I completed the hill, I have to export the GPX track and look at it in another tool. It would be convenient for Gaia to provide that capability on the site (not in the app).

    Yeah, I totally agree. I would love to see some more detailed reporting options within Gaia. Still, as you suggested, by having easier ways to get the track data, that would make it easier to work with in other tools.

    A tag function to distinguish between different types of tracks (trekking, mountain biking, snowboard,...) would be very helpful.

    That is a great point. Tagging for different activities would be very nice.

    Totally agree. There need to be ways to consolidate even the simplest data (e.g., miles per month).

    The idea of tagging has been suggested months/years ago on several submissions. It's got to be the most requested feature. 

    What I think you're really suggesting is a query and reporting capability, which I think would be great.

    I am thinking if Gaia provided a web API, like REST services then people could write their own query and reporting and customize it anyway they'd like. Also just being able to export in bulk all the track summary data to say a CSV would allow people to perform analysis in Excel.

    @sjmj3us  Yep, in a nutshell I am asking for tagging and a more sophisticated reporting capability that can leverage the tags, along with flexible time window selection options. I hadn't seen the prior requests, but I'm not surprised.

    I agree about api access and bulk data export options. In my opinion it would strengthen Gaia's position as the central place for all my GPS data if I knew I could always access the data the way I needed it.

    I just wanted to check back on this request thread to see if there is any renewed interest, or possibly updates on building it?

     

    To summarize, what is needed is:

    1) Ability to add tags to tracks, and
    2) A simple stats/reporting view that can be filtered by date/time and tags, as well as a data download link based on this filter.

    Thanks for posting again.

    There is still interest in updating how folders are designed and it is something Andrew, Gaia GPS CEO, is also interested in doing. You can read more about his comments on folder updates here: https://help.gaiagps.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360009507793-What-s-the-status-of-the-feature-requests.

    Nathan,

    Thanks for the response and the link to Andrew's comments! I'll be very interested to see what comes out of the work he is referring to.

     

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    I'm missing stats, too. at shareyouradventure.com we had monthly & yearly stats and the lovely "peak bagging" feature. Miss this on gaiagps!
