trackeRapp: A shiny dashboard for the analysis of running, cycling and swimming data

trackeRapp builds on the extensive infrastructure provided by the trackeR R package to provide a user-friendly web-interface of an integrated workflow for the analysis of running, cycling and swimming data from GPS-enabled tracking devices. The interface offers a range of flexible interactive visualisations and data-analytic tools.

trackeRapp offers functionality to import, clean and organise data from raw activity files of popular formats (tcx, gpx, json and db3) in a structured R object, and finally to export that object so that it can be used for future analyses not only within trackeRapp but also for more advanced modelling in R.
