Today, Strava is rolling out their new Flyover feature that allows subscribers to visualize their GPS activities from a birds-eye view on a 3D map. This feature leverages FATMAP’s mapping technology that they acquired earlier this year.
When subscribers go to the map on a GPS activity, there’s now a new button on the lower right hand side where they can see the Flyover of the activity where it switches to a 3D view of the activity and follows along the route allowing them to visualize it with the surrounding terrain.
The new Flyover feature even works for virtual activities that have virtual GPS tracks..
This feature is accessible for subscribers where they can not only view Flyovers for their own activities but also other Strava users whether they are subscribers or not. Additionally, non-Strava subscribers will be able to view Flyovers for Subscribers who have enabled this feature.
As of today, this is feature is only available on Android and will be rolling out to iOS later this year.
