Enable GPS timing in the shadowtrack tab:

The list is sortable by each column.
GPS timing list is updated automatically every 10 sec
GPS timing uses locations from GPS trackers same as from our tracking app - no additional timing hardware needed.
The calculation of the Live Rank is based on the current average speed along the shadowtrack.
When GPS device passes a virtual split (geo fence) within 50 m distance from the shadowtrack, the time difference to the start split is calculated. That means the list provides netto results.
There are two ways to access the GPS result list:
Click the clock pictogram in search bar of tracking map
Use the unique URL
Spectators access GPS results directly in search bar of the tracking map through the timing link.
You also reach the result list through a unique URL.
With the download link you download the data from the timing table as a *.csv file.
More information about the *.csv file:
If participants wait several minutes before starting the race and if their GPS device sends locations which belong to the "Start" geo fence, in that case GPS Timing is triggered too early and will calculate a long duration. The same szenario happens with "Finish" detections in the finish area.
To prevend those unintentional start- and finish detections just move the virtual start timekeeping 100 m along the shadowtrack (= 100 m behind real start point) and the finish timekeeping 100 m against the shadowtrack (= 100 m before the actual finish).
We made a comparison of GPS timing against a professional timing solution during the 100km-Duathlon:
Results of GPS-Timing corresponding to data of GPS trackers
The comparison of our GPS timing solution against a timing system shows
GPS timing provides results with low budget and low effort, no additional hardware needed
Same sequence of the scoring with GPS timing and with professional timing solution
Possible accuracy of 1 min, depending on tracking interval of GPS device

to measure the duration for charging the cars
to detect the finish.
There for we set-up a shadowtrack with 60 laps and a geofence @ charging zone_in and @ charging zone_out for each lap, which means this event was running with 120 virtual splits. All information were provided through a live page https://live.ecograndprix.com/.
