Crazy for Cross Country Skiing

We develop Racemap for Sports Events. Why? We are crazy for Sports! 

Giving you an example: Our CEO Konrad is going to do three worldloppet races this season. Starting with König Ludwig Lauf & Jizerská 50 … trying to attain a qualification for a good start wave at Vasaloppet, which will be the highlight of Konrad’s Cross Country Skiing Season.

Our CEO Konrad training for Vasaloppet, or is this a break?

Of course, Konrad will use our GPS Trackers to enable a real-time comparison with his club mates. You can just join Live-Tracking @ those three Ski-Races with your GPS Tracker or with Racemap Tracking App. 

Have a nice winter!

mapbox & fresh Marker Design

Racemap now uses mapbox which enables new map features, Our new marker design targets the location even better

Two major improvements available for our Tracking Map, now:

  1. Our interactive sports visualization now uses mapbox. That enables nice features like changing direction, orientation and layout (as Terrain, Sattelite and Hybrid) of the map (using the right mouse).
  2. New flag design targets precisely the location of the athletes. New hover feature displays the flag with the specific race number. Flags are semitransparent to catch what is covered by the flag.

The visualization concept of Racemap GPS Tracking is clear and easy to understand. Through our Tracking Map any spectator is able to watch the competition on a desktop or on a mobile device.

Update

Open Elevation Service

Background: We are working on a predictive Transponder-Tracking in tight collaboration with race|result. The prediction model is using recorded data from the timekeeping system as decoders and from TrackBoxes to forecast the athlete’s location real-time.

Everybody being involved in sports knows that the elevation is from key importance for a good speed prediction. It does strongly influence the speed of the athletes whether they ride their bikes uphill or downhill. Through our project for the Chip-Tracking we noticed, that Google Elevation API is too inaccurate for our use case. And as there is no other open elevation service providing accurate heights, we just developed and hosted such a service ourselves. You can use this service for your own projects under MIT license. You either host this service yourself or just use our API.

Do you have any question or suggestion regarding our elevation service? We are really looking forward to your feedback.
