The leaderboard provides results from geolocations and virtual splits with low effort, no timekeeping system is needed.
The same scoring with leaderboard and with professional timing solution.
Accuracy depending on tracking interval of GPS device, deviation < 1 min.
Leaderboard for an event with a given route
Prevent unintentional start- and finish timestamps: If participants wait before starting their race and the GPS device already sends locations close to the start split, then "start" detection can be triggered too early. To prevent unintentional reads of start and finish just move the location of the start split 100 m along the shadowtrack (100 m behind real start area). finish split: 100 m before real finish area.
Without a given route
Comparison of activities for an event without a given racetrack like a virtual race or an activity challenge:
Participants contribute their exercises at any time and from everywhere. Provide a leaderboard comparing individual workouts of every participant and a tracking map showing the current location or the progress.
