Average population fitness
TrailRunner calculates a fitness index based on your workout performance. The fitness score is comparable to VO2max
(maximal oxygen uptake in ml/min/kg), a commonly used descriptor of aerobic fitness. VO2max is a good indicator of performance in endurance sports.
The possible range of the fitness index goes from 25 (which can be measured for an unfit individual) to 95 (a level only reached by Olympic athletes).
Based on a representative group of men and women, the following table gives average fitness values according to their age group (Fletcher et al. 1995).
E.g. for a 33-year-old woman a fitness between 31-37 represents "average fitness" compared to other women of the same age. An index less than 31 is below the average and an index more than 37 is above the average. for a 33-year-old man, "average fitness" lies between 39-46.
Image sizes for NanoMap export
Exporting NanoMaps is not limited to the iPod Nano but also for cellphones. Aproriate image sizes can be found in the following table:
* Values describe the full extend of the screen. If you own a mobile like this and found out the real value, please leave me a note.
Tour databases and Software
TrailRunner can import and export GPX Files, a common file format used by tour-databases. It is an interchangable format than can be upload to any GPS unit with a native converter.
||Tour database for all categories like running, biking, hiking and so on.
||American tour database for all kinds of outoor activities.
|| LoadMyTracks is a utility that allows users of the Macintosh to download track, route, and waypoint information from a variety of GPS receivers and turn them into GPX files or KML files.
|| GPS Connect
|| Freeware program for Mac OS X which offers waypoint transfer with Garmin GPS receivers.
||Sync GPX-Files with you Garmin or Magellan GPS receivers.
Websites to mention
Interesting websites you might want to visit.
I am always interested in new map data. Especially in the Ogc/WMS format. If you know of any mapServers that support the getMap protocol with WGS84 projection then please tell me so I can add the service to this list and later implement an integration into the TrailRunner. Currently it won't be worth the effort.
A very good example is this german site: http://www.geoserver.nrw.de/home/gbdaten.html
