Test IOF LiveCenter – and use it during the World Championships

Posted on | July 2, 2014 | Category: News

The IOF is at the moment developing a LiveCenter service, which will be the entry point for people wanting to follow IOF Events live or re-live. In the first instance, the service will provide and guarantee high quality GPS tracking from IOF events. In addition, LiveCenter will soon include optional services such as web-TV (arena or TV production) and split times of all runners with GPS tracking units.

Future plans include integrating radio controls with radio control times of all participants, and official results.

Technical solution: The platform is HTML5 and the service is designed in priority order for tablet computers, other computers, mobile phones and devices.

The tracking service has two options:

  1. Standard version that does not require Java and is ideal for iPad and other smaller devices
  2. PRO version which is GPSseuranta developed by Pekka Varis

The service is designed in cooperation with Finnish company Traxmeet Oy. Traxmeet is a company who is offering solutions for wellness, sport and racing and owns the GPS-tracking devices that have been used in orienteering in many years.


The IOF LiveCenter public testing will take place from 2 July 2014. There are 70+ past events already in Livecenter for testing, and they are freely available.

The IOF LiveCenter address is livecenter.orienteering.org.

World Orienteering Championships

You can follow the World Orienteering Championships GPS tracking via LiveCenter. You can buy the tickets here: http://shop.orienteering.org/ Tickets are valid either for one event (eg. middle distance competition), or for the whole week. The World Championships events are used to further test the service. Most likely, web-TV will also be provided with arena speaker.

Any feedback may be sent to livecenter@orienteering.org.
