Elevation Profile of Hike

Now that I have had a little more time to play with the data obtained during my hike on Monday, I have found a few tools that will allow me to show interesting things from the tracklogs. One of my favorite things so far is the elevation profile, which shows the change in elevation during the hike. This isn’t likely to be something that I generate for every tracklog, since most of them are either flat and boring, or they are on such a tiny scale that every mild incline looks like a mountain (they look like an EKG, which doesn’t show a balanced or sensible geographic profile). The thumbnail of my first elevation profile is below. As always on my blog, click the image to see it big.
