Software to compare two gpx tracks?

Postby topcattim » Sun Sep 01, 2013 11:22 am

Does anyone know of any software that will enable me to compare two gpx tracks of the same route? I'd like to compare my performance across time trials along the same route - I have a hunch that today I went off too fast and therefore ran out of puff, but would be interested to know if the gpx track also bears that out. I know that raceshape allows you to compare your best Strava performance with other people's Strava performance, but I want something that allows me to compare two tracks of my own against each other. Does this exist?

Thanks Andrew. I'm a Windows user so won't be able to make that work, but I appreciate the lead.
Anybody else know of anything?

There were a couple of sites that allowed this but since Strava changed their software they are not available. Race shape I'm pretty sure did used to give you this feature.

I think that you can do this in SportTracks with the Unique Routes plugin.

Are the performance graphs on strava any good to you - they show speed over time/distance?

Yes, that's the sort of data I'm after, but I'm wondering if there is a way of overlaying two gpx tracks at once. I'm currently fiddling around on SportTracks trying to see if I can make that do what I want to...

Thanks Barbarossa. SportTracks is a new programme to me - looks like there is stacks of data there! Having trouble getting Unique Routes to load - it keeps crashing. I've found something that looks similar - Overlay - but I can't get it to display my relative position at similar times (e.g. how far I'd gone after each minute of the TT). I'll get there, I hope...
