RACE EXPLORER  is what happens when passions for data visualization and outdoor activity collide.  Developed by Perceptive Data Pty. Ltd., an Australian based data visualization company under the direction of middle-of-the-field trail runner Grant Henderson, RACE EXPLORER first gained its running legs when Grant served as the course designer on the race committee for the local Crack The Crater Trail Run in the picturesque town of Buninyong in Victoria, Australia.

Combining data visualization and the results output from the event timers, the concept of a virtual race map and racing analytics dashboard was created.  The idea was extended, fine-tuned, tested again and again, and when participants started remarking, “This is so cool!”, and began sharing it on social media, it was clear they loved exploring the race stats and finding themselves in the field on the virtual race map.

RACE EXPLORER is now available as a supported race analytics service worldwide.  It’s every event’s results and analytics companion.  Designed with fun in mind, RACE EXPLORER engages competitors post-event by immersing them in the finish line results and keeping the event hype continuing long after everyone has gone home. 

Central to RACE EXPLORER’s interface is the virtual race map.  This plots the finishing positions of all competitors, representing each person which an interactive icon.  Hovering over the icon reveals the competitor’s identity and their race statistics, including overall, category and gender positions, as well as their pace.

RACE EXPLORER provides a full post-event analytics platform for almost any type of timed event, including but not limited to running, cycling and swimming.  Multi-stage events such as triathlons are also supported.  You provide your results and we customise RACE EXPLORER to your event.

RACE EXPLORER’s visual analytics tell the story of the race and allow competitors (and event organisers) to explore the event in detail that can’t be provided by traditional tables of results.

With a fully featured interactive race dashboard, RACE EXPLORER promotes exploration of your event in detail, revealing competitor distributions, category participation and pace analysis.
