Using data collected from a Sony GPS data logger, Nathan Hoover of California, has reconstructed the route for four stages of the race. With further cleaning of the data he also managed to build a basic 3D terrain profile. He cannot wait to get his hands on the GPS data logged with the Garmin GPSmap 60CSx unit. The altimeter data will provide a more accurate measure of terrain elevation, rate of ascent/descent, a profile of elevation change over distance or time, or a profile of pressure changes over time.
For those interested in also exploring the Sony GPS and the Garmin GPS data can contact the organizers of the race. These data can be made available for download for those interested in exploring the data sets. We can also display any results from those working with the GPS data.
