[closed] Strava HeatMAP new-released!

Post by steve66 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 2:18 pm

Hi AQ creators,
just now on Facebook I see a post about a new release of the HeatMap in subject. Open it directly on the site I can see new "tracks" added respet the previously relase of the 2014.
Can you make an update of this?
Thanks

Hi and sorry for the delay.
Unfortunately it's not possible to use the new release in the application.
Sorry about that.

Because Strava added a protection so other applications cannot use their new map...

That's a great shame very useful layer for bike trails
The locus map users have come up with a solution, any chance it can be implemented in alpine quest

hi
I have had a battle with getting a cookie from chrome and adding it to the AQX file. my ancient computing and cut n paste skills not succeeding !

Could you show me what format and where to paste the cookie info in the .aqx file

i get an error
Failed to load custom map
file '/storage/emulated/
O/alpinequest/datastore/
custom-maps/COM.111.AQX':
awk (Xml Closing Tag (line
120, col 7, pos 6716: starts with
"cookie', ends with 'aqx', line
#120 column #7)

i have used these instructions from locus to acquire the cookie

As I am a heavy user to the strava heatmap as overlay I found a hack (disclaimer it's ugly :))

Create a Strava account (it's free)
Use Chrome to browse to the Strava Heatmap site (i.e. https://www.strava.com/heatmap#12.56/8. ... 9/hot/ride)
Login in Strava to be able to zoom on street level
Open open chrome developer tools -> network, filter for .png
Right click an entry in the column Name and do a "copy as cURL"
Paste that in an editor and copy the Cookie Part, everything after "Cookie:" up unto '
Override the strava2.providers.xml on your phone with the following: replace {paste cookie data here} with your Cookie data.

this is the cookie info i guessed it requires

"Cookie: CloudFront-Policy=...; CloudFront-Key-Pair-Id=...; CloudFront-Signature=..."

Just change "run" to "ride" in urls:

Code: Select all

<server><![CDATA[https://heatmap-external-a.strava.com/tiles-auth/ride/hot/{$z}/{$x}/{$y}.png?px=256]]></server>
Also, if you want to see winter tracks change "run" to "winter". And "all" for all tracks.
