I wanted to take a blog post today to share about some improvements we’ve made to GaiaCloud, along with stats about who is syncing data.
First off, pop over to the Main Map and Trail Gallery, and see the detailed footsteps and photographs of intrepid adventurers from all over the world. We hope you find both pages to be fast and easy-to-use, in helping you find places to go and plan your trips. We have been working to simplify the interface and optimize speed.
We’re putting a lot of work into GaiaCloud, because it’s getting a ton of use. Below you can see a snapshot of our internal stats dashboard. With the recent Apple feature and improvements to the website to make it useful without the iOS or Android app, sign-ups have never been stronger, and we just passed 20,000 people syncing with GaiaCloud in the past week.
From all this usage, the data is piling up. With about 140,000 tracks and 1.4 million waypoints synced so far, Gaia GPS is spending a lot of time in the woods. Look for a big surge in “Public” tracks next week, as the new Gaia GPS release goes live for iOS, which lets app users easily publish one or all of their tracks.
