Before the race

In standard event, make a new event data by using 'Event Manager'.

For standard foot-o competition, it is necessary to input entry list and class and course data. For training event, you can omit entry list by using ’Direct Entry' feature or 'Orienteer Name Database' feature. For score-o event, it is necessary to input score for each controls instead of course data.

On the race day

Software which is mainly used is different by event style. 'Main Window' is used for non-score race and 'Score-O Viewer' is used for score race.

Launch Main Window or Score-O Viewer

Saving data

All data with 'Main Window' and 'Score-O Viewer' are automatically saved in real-time. Do not worry about missing the data.

  • The processed data are saved in a file named 'changes.dat' in the data folder.
  • The 'changes.dat' file records all change tracking as text format. It may be possible to edit the raw data directly.
