Length vs Length ground

Beitragvon g1ann1s » Mi 23. Apr 2014, 13:41


I have a question concerning Maaloo Outdoor,
in the tracks menu -> tracks details, 2 different
distances are measured.

Length and Length Ground.

What is the difference?
Does the first take into account the elevation difference
between two consecutive record points (hypotenuse)?
Speed is based on the "Length" as i see.

Some details would be appreciated!

Yes, you are right. The "Length Ground" eliminates the elevation differences, assumes elevation=0 for all points. The "Speed" depends on the "Length" with elevation.
