We are still working on the Photo Project, hoping to release a public Beta that any race can use by July 18 at the RunSignUp Symposium.
We’d like to thank Race Day Events and Focal Flame for letting us use their data and beautiful photography in this example!
Here is a video walk thru:
When you upload Photos, they will automatically appear in a new Photos Page for your Race Website:
You can click on a location and see the photos.
You can click on each photo to see a larger view and quickly scroll thru them, simply Download:
You can also share the photo on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest:
You can also search for participants by Bib, Last or First name:
When you bring up a particular participant, you will see two sections of photos. One is from bib tags. We automatically put all photos thru Google Vision to automatically search for bib numbers. While it is only about 70% accurate, it is done in seconds. It “seeds” the photos, which encourages other participants and viewers to add their own tags and make corrections on a crowdsourced basis.
The second section is “Near” photos. This is done for the finish line (and also split points) where we automatically calculate the difference between the camera time that is put into each photo inside the camera as meta data, and the finish time posted as results onto the RaceDay Go platform.
In addition to searching on the Photos page, the photos are integrated into the Results. So you can click on a person in Results and on their individual page see a link to their photos. This page will be redone to show the photos directly on the page:
There are many more features we will be adding to the platform, so stay tuned.

So bob says you can process finish photos using the meta data on the photo. Assuming now that all cameras used will have to have times synced as close as possible with finish results time systems so they match up correctly?
If some of the photos are tagged with bib numbers where those bibs have gun times, then we automatically do the math for you. We have an algorithm that calculates the average and then throws out any time differences that are more than 2 standard deviations off, and then recalculate the average and use that to add/subtract from each photo time. Note that each set of photos will have to come from one camera. So if you have two finish line cameras, you should have those as two separate sets of photos, and sync each one separately. It is amazingly easy – I told Ryan he needs to add a delay and put the running Ron Synup character up for a while to let people know something happened 🙂
