CartieSim Just Got Better

Bookmark and Share

CartieSim, the SCA's cartie speed calculation application, just got better. Version has just been released and includes some significant improvements;

  • Added distance v. time chart
  • Much improved calculation of elevation data from online satellite data sets (SRTM and ASTER). Elevation is now interpolated from nearest 16 data points using bicubic interpolation
  • Modified formula and algorithm for determining speed to better account for the effect of wheel mass
  • Added modelling of drag plates (for Cairngorm)
  • Default new cartie data can be saved
  • Automatic insertion of extra course datum points on long straights to give better resolution of the elevation profile
  • Automatic detection and marking of cornersĀ 
The new version can be downloaded from here. Existing installations should update automatically when they are next run.
