Abstract: The problem of determining total distance ascended during a mountain biketrip is addressed. Altitude measurements are obtained from GPS receiversutilizing both GPS-based and barometric altitude data, with data averaging usedto reduce fluctuations. The estimation process is sensitive to the degree ofaveraging, and is related to the well-known question of determining coastlinelength. Barometric-based measurements prove more reliable, due to theirinsensitivity to GPS altitude fluctuations.
