2 changes to the image system today. 1. following a suggestion from gewilli I switched from jpeg to png, to fix the aliasing problems w/ the text and lines. Looks much better. plus I changed it, so the image is named after the navslug if there's one there, so I shouldn't have problems with links in the future. (sometimes if I embed an image directly in my blog and then re-draw that hill, the link is then broken.)

not many updates lately, but I did just check out the infamous Manitou Incline. Because it isn't really ridable, I don't want it interfering with searches and whatnot. (It's so steep it took the top spot in the database by almost 2000 points, for a hill that's only 1 mile long.) But rather than delete it, I added a status field, so it's only accessible by direct link, not by searching.

Ideally, I'd like to have the ability, when using the compare feature, to be able to select portions of a climb to find out what the average gradient for some section of the climb is. Getting the coding for that is proving to be pretty hard, and I don't really have the time to sort it all out. In the mean time, I changed so that, when you hover over the graph, it will show you both the average gradient up to that point (as it did before) and also the average gradient from that point until the end of the climb. I already used this to discover that the last mile of Mount Sunapee is a staggering 15.8%. (link)

due to a snafu with a route I made for Angliru (the gpx was empty, but the csv was fine) I made it possible to upload csv's for the hills too. currently just saves them as "temp" and then you change the name and recalculate. This also means that the images use the name in the database for recalculations, not the name on the veloroutes file, which is something I don't know why I didn't fix a long time ago.

Ok, I'm pretty sure that as long as everything is in the service of displaying results on a google map, I'm ok. So I've added google maps showing the location of the climb on the view page.

Koppenberg now looks much better, as do a few others. I tried Scanuppia and got an error, which leads me to believe I exceeded some sort of maximum...not sure.

successful test of using the google elevation service. I tried the gpx file I have for the koppenberg which gives a completely jagged looking profile. looks PERFECT using google.

http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/elevation/

I think this new service from google might mean I'll have to start looking at a rewrite of my gradient engine to use google's api. Veloroutes elevation seems to be non-existent outside the US (before it was just not very accurate), so if google has accurate info, I can finally start branching out of the US.

The new feature below is to facilitate another new thing...We're on twitter! (twitter.com/brentacol) This change log will still be used for technical updates about the site (no one really watches this page, do you?? I mean, that would just be sad...), but I'll be using the twitter page for posting new hills as I add them, and quick notes about the hills when I ride them, etc.

I did some work on the home page. There's now a more prominent use of the logo, and a section with the "20 most difficult" climbs according to BRENTACOL. If other queries are added they'll cycle randomly. I'm also working on an rss feed, but I don't want to publish it until it's pretty certain it's working properly, since as I've discovered in debugging it, removing unintended entries from your feed-watching program can be quite a pain. Also noticed that the function mentioned in the previous post to remove a hill from the comparison page behaves very erratically. Will fix soon.

Added some new functions to the Compare page. If you go to the page without a form (which previously just gave you a blank page) now gives you a form which lets you select any climb from the dropdown. That starts a comparison page with just that climb. The dropdown now appears at the bottom of the comparison page and lets you add new climbs (up to 10) to the java page. This is a big change from previously where to compare 2 arbitrary climbs they had to be close enough to get them together in the same search results or something like that. Now any comparison is possible. There's also a little x next to each hill so you can remove it from the graph.
