Parameters added to adjust the mapping
We've added parameters to flexibly adjust the mapping algorithm to the specific needs of your event:
- Max. mapping distance
- Max. and Min speed for speedfilter
This will allow for more accurate mapping, and we are sure it will be a helpful addition for your event. Access the mapping parameters in the "Danger Zone" of the advanced settings of your event.
The mapping impacts all functions and features in Racemap that calculate the relation of the devices' locations to the shadowtrack. Which are visualization, leaderboard, monitor, */ranks & */current API.
How does the mapping work? GPS devices send their geo data to a specific tracking map. The mapping calculates the device's location on the shadowtrack. The algorithm takes into account the device's current coordinates and its previous location on the track. Mapping considers laps and assumes that a device moves onwards (and not backward) on the track.
