Wanderings is a location tracking application that shows a heatmap of where you've been. It is low effort; just keep the Wanderings iPhone App running in the background on your phone and it will record where you are occasionally using GPS and other location methods. Then come to the website to see a heatmap of where you have been. We hope to run Wanderings for years.
Wanderings is privacy friendly; we don't keep a copy of your location data on our own server. Your locations are only stored in iCloud (requiring your password to access) and cached in your local browser for display. (In addition the Mapbox map service we use collects telemetry data, which you can disable.) The location tracker on the iPhone is designed to have very low impact on your battery; a few percent a day at most. We do not currently have an Android app but we are drag-and-drop compatible with GeoJSON and GPX output of various GPS tracking apps like Mendhak's GPSLogger.
Related products include Google Timeline, Fog of World, Strut, and OpenPaths. See also Strava's global heatmap.
Wanderings is a small side project by Brad Greenlee and Nelson Minar. If you have any questions please contact us on Twitter @wanderin_gs or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can export and import data from the web application. To export, open the menu in upper left and select 'Export your data' to save a GeoJSON file. To import, drag files on to the browser window. Supported formats include Google Timeline exports (via Google Takeout / Location History), GPX (including Strava), OpenPaths JSON, GeoJSON from GPSLogger for Android, and any GeoJSON data with a "ts" property (such as our export format). If you want support for another import format please tweet or mail us.
You can fully erase your data from the iCloud servers by selecting the “Erase iCloud data” option. This step is permanent, there is no way to recover erased data. Consider exporting a copy of your data to a file first for safekeeping.
