I recently read an article about Rickey Gates completing the full compliment of streets in San Francisco, and it got me wondering about doing the same on a smaller scale for my community. Rickey discussed efficiency and the Travelling Salesman / Chinese Postman math problems and it got me wondering about what if someone wanted to do multiple attempts at running every street in their community?
My life map is great, but if I were to start a project like this, I think I would want to be able to start with a clean slate each time? Or at least have the ability to filter out past runs to see a particular time frame and what was accomplished etc? I was wondering if it would be possible to create a filter for the data on the life map, or within my profile so I can see just 2019, or just 2020 etc. Or perhaps a user set time frame to be able to do that.
I’m thinking that it would be nice to see how well I do on a first attempt to run every street in my community, but then perhaps to try a second time (my community is relatively small - Campbell River), to see if I can be more efficient in how I go about it. So in that regard it might be nice if there were an ability to compare my full attempt metrics (how many kilometres did I run to complete the goal each time, or how many days did it take to complete each attempt, how much elevation gain was there, etc).
From that, it might also then be possible to compare my in progress goal, or completed goal against that of others with respect to total amount of time or distance taken to complete the community.
Thoughts? Anyone want to build on this idea? (Or more likely, I am saying something similar to a previous idea brought forward?
Thanks for your time and efforts on CityStrides everyone!
