Using elevation correction plugin

Using elevation correction plugin

Postby gringojack » Sun Mar 06, 2016 1:26 am

Hello

I used Edge1000 and Fenix3 GPS on a road cycling ride and I got 2 different elevation numbers (128m and 210m). They should be exactly the same. Using Elevation Correction command in ST3 they got them closer to each other
So can anyone help me on this or let me know where I can find some info or Manual for this plugin?

Thank you

You cannot expect two devices to give the same values:
* The elevation track is probably not exactly the same. Different sensors, different positioning, different smoothing.
* Algorithms for smoothing may be completely different, also for the same manufacturer - not public. Also in ST, different zones may be used.

So if you replace the barometer tracks you of course get numbers that are closer...

The documentation link on the plugin page:

Use the Elevation Correction Activity page to view profiles for different sources.

Links in the FAQ for how climb is calculated in ST:

Generally, the barometer tracks are better for profiles than EC.
