About Strava Segment Weather Analysis
This website was created with the idea of cracking down on actual effort outputted by athletes during competitions. Wind plays a significant factor in competitions, and Strava segments do not take into consideration time, place and weather.
The website uses Strava V3 APIs to receive information about segments through AJAX (JSONP) requests. Likewise, AJAX requests are sent to OpenWeather API to receive information about weather. Knowing the wind direction and strength, it is possible to generate a vector that relates to the strength and direction of wind. Given the start/end longtiude/latitude, it is then solvable to find the correlation. The site also makes use of Google Maps API to display the map on the site.
The only known issue could be if it is a loop, then the data is exaggerated depending on the GPS inconsistencies. This may be fixed in future updates.
