Capture.PNGGood morning -

I uploaded a GPX file from strava with my run on it.  I have a point feature for every second of the run.  I'd like to symbolize the speed at which I was running but am drawing a blank on the google search.  Any suggestions?

I'm not sure if your actual GPX file captured the speed. The GPX to Features tool doesn't translate speed as it's not a standard field from the GPX schema. There are ways to hack up the tool to pull more fields from a GPX (assuming that you have a speed field).

 

Alternatively, you can download a tool I wrote: https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=46d7940511a74b9199cabceeede44aaa It derives speed based on a couple different ideas. (distance / time between points). The output would be a track (line)

It looks like the Classify Movement Events tool in ArcGIS Pro will do this: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/intelligence/classify-movement-events.htm

The tool is new in ArcGIS Pro 2.7 so won't be available in ArcMap, but if you have a current Desktop license, you should also have access to ArcGIS Pro.  https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/get-started/about-licensing.htm 

Hope this helps!

Thanks.  I downloaded the tool but am not sure how to add it to ArcMap (never done that before).  How do I add a tool?

Extract the zip file to somewhere (C:\temp), then in your Catalog window, just navigate to that folder. Once there, expand it, you'll see the tool. Just run it the same as any other geoprocessing tool.
