TO VIEW TRACKING

Tracking is viewed on internet-browser by HTML-application or java-applet. Links for this appear in each event's page in EVENTS section.


On Chrome 45 and higher java is no longer supported. HTML-application doesn't require java and works in mobile devices too.

NEW 2012-04-12 GPSsbit - a small javascript-based "gps-player" to present tracking highlights in a web page.

Old trackings (2007-2009) can be viewed also with special Windows-software.

Download most recent version:

Archived tracking routes can be viewed also as jpg-files Link for 2007-2009 trackings







Instructions for using java tracking applet.

NEW 9/2010

Double-click map -> nearest competitor's name is shown for 5 seconds

Shift+click map -> all checked competitors are moved to that point (or nearest place on their routes). Works only in REPLAY-mode. These offsets can be removed with lower-left settings panel's Offset tab's Reset all- button.

Modes

With upper-left switches it's possible to change between LIVE/REPLAY modes and REAL TIME/TIME FROM START modes.

LIVE

Almost real-time situation is shown second by second. However program has a small buffer in order to show trackings smoothly.

REPLAY

Fast replay can be viewed:

REAL TIME

Program uses normal time (from event time zone).

TIME FROM START

Time used is each competitor's time from her/his start time = "simulated mass-start".
In LIVE-mode TIME FROM START uses last starter's time (among selected competitors).
If you want to quickly see how someone is doing compared to earlier starters, use LIVE and TIME FROM START-modes, select the competitor in question and click ->Sel.

Map

Map can be moved by dragging and by clicking the upper-right minimap: Minimap includes also zoom-buttons.

Hiding/showing panels

Some parts of application window can be hidden/shown with narrow two-arrow -buttons.

Grey-edged marker

If a marker has grey edge, there is no actual position data available for that timestamp. So competitor has not stopped...

Highlighting a competitor

Double-clicking a name in one of the namelists makes a competitor highlighted. Map is centered and letters next to marker are bordered. Highlighting is removed with another double-click.

Settings

Lower-left corner has some setting-tabs:

Tails

By default each competitor has one minute tail. Lenght of the tails can be adjusted, or tails can be removed so that all routes are drawn. Drawing all routes for large number of competitors can make application slow.
Checkbox "Not highlighted" makes all routes drawn for highlighted competitors despite of other tail settings.

Map

Opacity, zoom, appearance of minimap and font size for competitor list can be adjusted. Off-setting hides the whole list.

Lines

Order

Offset

Splits

With right double-arrow -button Splits panel is shown. It's possible to draw own split lines and application caluclates times when each competitor has crossed that line. "Laps" mean crossing the same line several times.

With ALT + right-click you get split-point instead of split-line. Split time is competitor's nearest time to given point if that is max radius meters away. Laps are meaningless with split points.

Sectors-tab gives possibility to calculate used time between two split lines. Sector times there are not updated automatically, but use of Calculate-button is needed.

  

Additional stuff

Splits-tab has two extra functions. Arrange by splits -button sorts namelists according to current splits list. Generate "mass-start" -button adjusts each competitor's offsets so that they are all at the same time in the current split line. Offsets can be removed with lower-left settings panel's Offset tab's Reset all- button.
Generate "mass-start" is available only in REPLAY-mode.

With IN-OUT -setting for example last 50 m before and first 50 m after split point (not -line) are timed
