http://rg.orienteering.org.nz provides an open Routegadget service for all NZ orienteering events.
This guide is intended for clubs and event organisers who would like to upload their event to Routegadget. If you are an orienteer or competitor who is looking for information on how to use the NZ Routegadget, please refer to http://rg.orienteering.org.nz/
There are several steps to publish your event in the NZ Routegadget application:
Generally, the faster you can upload the event onto RouteGadget following an event, the greater the number of people who will use it.
Four pieces of information are required to setup an event in Route Gadget. Some of this (Background Map, Courses File, and All Controls Map) can be created before the event and kept confidential by the Planner/Controller until the event is completed. (For example, on a USB micro drive kept by Controller).
Once the event is over and the results finalized, the Splits data can be generated and combined with the previously prepared files (or saved onto the USB micro drive) to upload the event onto RouteGadget quickly.
These instructions assume the person uploading results onto the clubs website and adding the event onto RouteGadget will be different to the Planner/Controller of the event, however this may or may not be the case.
Suggestion: always have multiple backups of your OCAD/CONDES course setting files.
The four pieces of information required to upload an event onto RouteGadget are:
The Controller checks the results and finalises the results. Once the results have been finalised and approved, they can generate the results for publishing on the club website and the splits file for upload into winsplits and routegadget.
The Split file is created after the event has finished.
The Adding new event page will display based on the options selected.
