We're delighted to bring you news of the latest new feature that we've added to plotaroute.com - our Calorie Calculator.
If you want to know how many Calories you're likely to burn by walking, running or cycling a route, you can now find this out. Whenever you view a route on plotaroute.com you'll now see the estimated number of Calories burned alongside other key data like distance, terrain and ascent. Initially the estimated Calories will be based on default settings, but you can configure the calculator to use your own weight and pace for the activity type in question. Once you've done this, your settings will be saved so that you don't need to re-enter them each time.
This was one of the most voted-for requests on our Feature Requests list, so we're particularly pleased that we've been able to add this to the site. We're continuing to invest in developing plotaroute.com to make it even better, so please vote for any features that you would like to see added.
