Discussion: Post race analysis software recommendation

In the past I used Quickroute to analyze my performance after a race. I really like the feature allowing upload to DOMA. I see that the software has not been updated lately.

Currently, what is the best software for analyzing GPS routes after a race?

Is 3DRerun the best option?

I was under the impression that there is work on an integration between quickroute, eventor and the eventor map archive, such that if you upload the gpx file to your eventor result, it overlays it on the georeferenced map in the map archive, much like Quickroute. Would be interesting to hear how this is going.

Sounds like The Beaten Track.

A little more developed I expect. I think the idea is to have maps georeferenced in the eventor archive so the organiser doesn't need to add a map to the google image. Livelox is the current state of play. I found it much more interesting as an analytic tool that RG or QR.
It seems to have taken off in Sweden.
When Bendigo Orienteers used it in the intitial free access period, you still had to upload maps for each event and make sure they were georeferenced. I don't know if this has changed. Since then I have had a small dabble on the eventor map archive site, but stopped as I was unsure about what licensing Australia had paid for. I certainly couldn't add Australian coordinates to the couple of maps I uploaded. There were no suitable projections.

From the web site
"It's free to upload routes, and to view your own and other's routes one at a time in Livelox. To be able to compare many routes, a subscription is needed. There are two kinds of subscriptions: personal subscriptions and club subscriptions. Both types are valid one year from the time of purchase. Event organisers don't need any subcription to upload maps and courses for an event.
An personal subscription gives access to routes from all competitions and trainings, and is associated with a specific person. It is the subscription type that gives access to all functionality for all types of events, regardless of the organising club. The price is 299 SEK.
A club subscription gives all club members access to routes for events organised by the club. Events organised by other clubs are not included. The subscription comes in two flavours:
Club subscription for clubs affiliated with a national orienteering federation using Eventor, currently Sweden, Norway, and Australia. The price is 500 SEK / 500 NOK / 60 EUR plus 30 SEK / 30 NOK / 3 EUR per member starting in an Eventor event last year for Sweden, Norway, and Australia, respectively. Club membership information is fetched from Eventor. Please note that Eventor events on regional level and above are not included in this subscription. A personal subscription is required to compare routes from such events.
Club subscriptions for other clubs. If your club is not affiliated with the national orienteering federation in Sweden, Norway, or Australia, you can add it to Livelox through your user account. When the club is added, you can purchase subscriptions for a number of club members of your choice. The price is 60 SEK per club member. After the subscriptions have been purcased, you can easily distribute them to the club members.
As a member in a club associated with the Swedish Orienteering Federation, you can activate a free personal trial subscription valid for 15 days. It gives you full access to all Livelox features. Click Buy a subscription to navigate to the page where the trial subscription is activated."

I just recently made some tweaks to our club's doma for animating and comparing any tracks stored there. Viewer can open selected tracks on google imagery (with O map overlay), compare and animate tracks form any point on. No additional work like geo-referencing or anything needed, old tracks can be viewed and animated out-of-the-box. There is no analysis tools like in 2d-rerun, just dots on o-map/google imagery. This no way is replacement for livelox or 2d-rerun, but still is pretty handy. Let me know if you feel like to trying it out.

"The Beaten Track"? Googled. Can't find.

Livelox allows not just replay and analysis but it can and is used for live tracking as well. Florida Orienteering is using Livelox at all its events and encouraging their particpants - particularly the JROTC- to carry smartphones with the Livelox app so they can be live tracked and wayward ones can be guided back on course. The uptake is slow but steady. At the last event a little over 20% of the participants were live tracked.

Do you ring them up or message them if they are going off-route ?

No, you highlight it to the commentator and note it for after event highlights so everyone can share the schadenfreude.

Why am I thinking of Dr Seuss?
