The shadowtrack keeps the exact information of the race course the participants are supposed to cover during the race. It has no interruption - a continuous line. That means the length of the file is the exact lenght of the race. The shadowtrack must combines legs/ stages and laps in one file:
The shadowtrack for a triathlon includes the three legs of swimming, cycling and running. Separate files for each leg will not work for the algorithm to follow.
If the participant has to run three laps, the file has to consider three laps.
To improve the prediction for events like triathlons you have to divide the shadowtrack into sections like swimming, running, biking, transition area, ... . For every section you can set a default speed corresponding to last year time results.
The splits are displayed on your shadowtrack. That way you can parameterize your shadowtrack, precisely.
With the "Show Hardware"-feature you check the settings of your hardware (Track Boxes, Decoders, Loop Boxes), of r|r and of Racemap some days before the event.
In case you use predictive Tracking and your timing system don't forward it's geo location you can set up each location at the shadowtrack.
Add a split for each timing system and add the forwarded Timekeeping ID. Mostly it's the MAC-Address of the hardware.
To include interims for the live GPS-Timing you can add splits at the shadowtrack. To take splits into account click the "timekeeping" checkbox.
