Upload Courses and Maps to Livelox

Livelox is a web-based application for analysis of routes from orienteering races.

As an organizer of orienteering trainings or competitions, you can publish maps and courses to Livelox to let spectators follow the competitors in real time, and to let participants analyze their route choices post-race.

Now it’s possible to upload courses and maps from OCAD directly to Livelox.

How it works

Fill Bounded Area Mode

Use the newly added Fill Bounded Area Mode to automatically fill empty areas that are bounded by various objects from line or area symbols.

The area, that is entirely surrounded by objects will be filled with the selected symbol. If the area is not surrounded entirely by objects, the current view of the drawing window will be filled.

If you work with orienteering symbol sets (ISSprOM 2019, ISOM 2017), the function will ignore certain symbols like contours and north lines.

How it works

Toggle Between Vertices and Segements

There are 3 types of vertices: Normal-, Dash- and Corner Vertices.

Depending on wich Vertex Type you use, it will influence segments and line objects.

If you hold CTRL+SPACE key and click on a vertex, you can toggle through the different vertex types.

To toggle between straight and bezier curve segments, press CTRL+SPACE key and click on a segment.

Copy and Paste Objects Between Maps

It is now possible to copy/paste objects forth and back between two maps. A coordinate system needs to be set in both maps, but not necessarily the same one. Also, the map scales can be different. The pasted objects appear automatically at the right spot.
