Good news! We’ve improved the reliability and accuracy of our elevation data and its geographic coverage. If you’re located in the United States, your elevation data has just become more accurate. And if you’re a Strava cyclist or runner outside of the United States (between latitudes 70North and 70South) without barometer-equipped devices, you will now see some exciting new stats after you upload your activity!
Riders wordwide, you will now see your elevation gain and estimated power on your ride page, and runners worldwide, you will now see elevation gain and grade adjusted pace on your run page. What’s more, this elevation data lets you compete in future Strava challenges having to do with gaining elevation, so let the global climbing competitions begin!
We hope that this new and improved activity analysis is as useful as we think it’s going to be. If you have any feedback, please let us know by visiting support.strava.com.
