This repository contains code to calculate the total elevation gain and loss across all 2015 Pronto trips, using data released through the Pronto Data Challenge.
Total elevation gain: 1,056,168 meters
Total elevation loss: 2,686,392 meters
(equivalent to ~13.4 hours in freefall at 200km/h)
Net elevation loss: 1,630,224 meters
Conclusion: Pronto users seem to prefer to go downhill.
$ make $ python main.py
Or, if you want to reproduce my elevation data, get a Google Maps API key and:
$ pip install -r requirements.txt $ rm 2015_station_data_with_elevation.csv $ echo "googlemaps_api_key = '<api key>'" > config.py $ make $ python main.py
