Route Analyzer in use

The Swiss Sprint Champs 2019 were held last Sunday in Stans. Course setter Peter Tsch├╝mperlin offered challenging courses with many interesting route choises.

The Elite Courses with the shortest routes and alternatives can be found on https://www.ocad.com/en/route-analyzer/

Swiss Sprint Champs 2019

The Route Analyzer helped Peter Tsch├╝mperlin to find interesting route choises and optimise them.

Furthermore, the calculation of the shortest possible length for each course was considered to be very useful. Measuring them manually would have been a huge extra effort.

Last but not least, a map with the routes of all courses helped to support the planning of the road safety and also for agreements with the authorities.
