Winsplits is software designed to enable analysis and comparison of orienteering performance. It uses control visitation data enabled by the Sportident electronic punching system we use at all SDO events.
Why use WinSplits
Orienteering is individual sport. Usually you run along and see only few people on the course. But still you can compare your results with other competitors and see where your won or lose.
WinSpilts use data from your Sport Ident fingerstick uploaded by event hosts. For every leg you can see total + leg time + your place for this leg and how total place is changing over the time. Almost like you are running head to head.
