Statshunters is a gamechanger. With the chrome extension installed, load up the Komoot planner and it almost takes the fun out of plotting routes to nab tiles, it's that easy.
Also great reporting and filtering for ride data.
Do people count exploration by foot? Feels a bit cheap to me, but it would mean I'd get Dartmoor done.
I think you make your own rules. Personally I’d want it to be with bike, be that on a boat or walking or whatever.
Curse living on the coast next to Dartmoor, got a decent rectangle, but shitty square 16x16.
The "rules" state that it has to be self-powered. So walking is fine, and sometimes the only option.
My own rule or condition is that grabbing a tile must be in done in a proper activity. So not taking my car or a train to get to a spot and walk 2 km or cycle 15 km and snatch up a few tiles and head back home.
Oh, I'm happy with counting our weekend walks/wild camps for bits like the open moor, where riding off a bridleway is a c*nt move (imo).
Some tiles will feel easier than others, no problem in that. There will always be a bit of competition because the numbers are easy to compare but the main goal of the tiles is still to explore roads/areas where you haven't been before.
I'm also aware I probably have it easier in Belgium compared to the UK as we have a million roads here.
9000miles of roads in Devon, so I'm ok on that count. Just limited by geography.
Any ideas why Statshunters might have different numbers to Veloviewer? I'm currently seeing a slightly higher overall tiles total, a marginally smaller cluster and a significantly reduced max square on SH. Apparently all data has been updated and nothing is private/hidden..
The activity line precision is probably the problem. Compare the edges of your max cluster on SH and VV and check if tiles are missing. You can recalculate the route with higher precision by clicking on it in SH and click precision and by visiting the detail view of the activity on VV. See if that changes things.
Or not all activities are synced. You can check the total numbers on both sites.
Nice one, it looks like the former should fix it..
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
