Import IMEI with RACE|RESULT simple API

Users of RACE|RESULT timekeeping software asked to import the IMEI of their GPS devices to Racemap. 

Now you can flexibly use RACE|RESULT simple API to synchronize the additional parameters 

IMEI, color, key

with participant entries in your Racemap event.  That way you match participant information with GPS trackers in your online registration directly. A more efficient work flow.

Documentation:


Get hourly loadings for each event

Our users want to keep track of consumption and control their costs, of course. We were asked for precise data of used loadings. In the analytics section of each of your events, you can now access all hourly loadings.

The syntax of the URL uses the eventID and the start- and the end time: 

*/api/events/eventID/pageviews?startTime=2021-08-21T04:15:00.000Z&endTime=2021-08-31T23:59:59.999Z 


Delete command queue in tracker management

You can now delete commands which have not been sent from the queue. Such as if an old "Shut down" command is on hold, you can prevent sending this command to the tracker before switching on.

New parameters in */times/id data feed

Our data feeds are used for 3rd party applications such as timing software. We improved the data feed for specific timekeeping points and added two parameters

  • name of timekeeping in Racemap and 
  • distance in m of the detection from geolocation of timekeeping point

All information about */times/id data feed in our documentation https://docs.racemap.com/data-export-from-racemap/export-api/times#times-id-reads-at-virtual-timekeeping-point

Merge athletes with GPS units from tracker management

We improved to match the entries in your participant list with selected devices from your tracker management.

Import or sync the participant list of your event from your online registration for example with the generic API (https://docs.racemap.com/api-import-and-export-data/import-basics/metadata-api).

In your tracker management https://racemap.com/admin/trackers

  1. Select GPS trackers to use for live tracking
  2. Add these devices to an event
  3. Select from your event list

The GPS units are added automatically to the participants in your event. The participant list shows the device name from tracker management, also.

Corresponding to this process there is no need for CSV files to update the participant list, anymore.

Add external topographic maps

We were asked for the option of other maps than from mapbox. You can now paste the URL of the external map source for your tracking map. Open the dialogue in the map editor under external layers. 


Add contact email and website for info panel

Some users like to show their contact information, that way participants reach out to the support team easily. In "event logo and description" you can now provide the website and the contact email for each event, separately. These parameters are shown in the info of the corresponding tracking map. 


Set splits as POI

Users customize their race visualization and virtual timing in the map editor. We developed several enhancements to work more efficiently. 

Now you can add the point of interest (POI) property to a split, directly. Define name and color respectively the icon to be visualized at the location of the split.


You can center the map editor around the location of your device.
