Stravas Global Heatmap

Our global heatmap is the largest, richest, and most beautiful dataset of its kind. It is a direct visualization of Strava’s global network of athletes. To give a sense of scale, the new heatmap consists of:

1 billion activities
3 trillion latitude/longitude points
13 trillion pixels rasterized
10 terabytes of raw input data
A total distance of 27 billion km (17 billion miles)
A total recorded activity duration of 200 thousand years
5% of all land on Earth covered by tiles
