net results: difference from 1st timestamp (start location), independent from if participants start
anytime, like a virtual race or
at nearly the same time, like a regular event.
calculating timestamps from geolocations of each participant
either without given race track like a virtual race, participants provide activities "from everywhere" => virtual timestamp if GPS device has covered the distance of the split
or participants are supposed to move on given route from start- to finish location => virtual timestamp if GPS device passes split in 100 m distance from shadowtrack
effortless timestamps with virtual splits and geolocations of each participant, no timing hardware
velocity filter: distances with too high velocity are not considered in Leaderboard depending on kind of sport of each event
10 sec auto update
timestamps with 1 sec accuracy
scales to the largest events with more than 2,000 participants such as Damloop https://racemap.com/timing/dam-tot-damloop-home-edition-10em_2020

Connect athletes in an overall map from where they are and compare their activities in a Leaderboard. Participants contribute their exercises at anytime and from everywhere. The virtual race provides a leaderboard to compare individual workouts of every participant and a Tracking Map showing the current location and the replay to verify specific activities.

From everywhere e.g. a participant in Norway and another athlete in Germany feed their activities into the same event.
Participants provide their activities at anytime within the Start- and End Time of the virtual race.
Participants accumulate activities, e.g. 5k on Monday and another 8k on Wednesday.
If a participant contributes more than the "Target Distance", the fastest 10km distance of all its activities is considered for the finish time.
considering duration of activity when receiving location updates: If participant stops recording its activity due to a break, the break is ignored in the Leaderboard.
Set the parameter "Marker Timeout" (default 180 sec) to process received location data. If a GPS device stops reporting locations for more than the Marker Timeout (180 sec), then the distance between these two locations is ignored. That means participants can contribute their Monday workout and add their Wednesday training also.
If participants wait before starting their race and the GPS device already records and sends locations close to the start split, then the "start" timestamp can be triggered too early. To prevent unintentional start- and finish detections 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.
For recording a timestamp at the start split the algorithm needs to map the location of the real start area to the virtual "start" split on the shadowtrack. If the 1st location the algorithm receives from a device is closer to lap three then this device is mapped into lap 3 with the wrong distance on the shadowtrack.

Therefore shadowtrack with 60 laps and one split @ charging zone_in and another split @ charging zone_out for each lap, which means this event was running with 120 virtual splits. All information was provided through a live page https://live.ecograndprix.com/.
