About WinSplits

WinSplits is a software system created for presentation and analysis of split times from orienteering competitions. These split times are stored in a database that constitutes the core of the WinSplits system. Event organisers update the database by uploading split time files via the internet. Participants and other users can then view and analyse the split times using either WinSplits Online or WinSplits Pro. The following diagram describes the information flow.

  • uses the service entirely for free
