What is Tracking in Mapyx Quo?

The Mapyx Tracking System integrates with all Mapyx Maps and all Mapyx Quo functionality. It permits the User to plan where groups or individuals should be walking, where they have walked and where they are located.

Mapyx Tracking Solution was designed in conjunction with Mountain Rescue England & Wales who tested and utilise the system. The system was designed for use in demanding rescue situations and fully integrates with Mapyx systems.

How?

The group or individual carries a Tracking device, which sends a location signal via satellite, radio or mobile phone signal back to your computer, which displays all relevant data, such as position over time, current location, heading and even speed.

Mapyx Tracking Solution ticks all the boxes:

  • It is used by professional organisations.
  • It is used by Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Groups.
  • It uses full Ordnance Survey Mapping from Overview, to Miniscale, to 250k, to 50k, to 25k to 10k and aerial imagery.
  • Mapyx Tracking systems can be used worldwide.

When you use Mapyx systems, you can be sure that they have been thoroughly tested by professional rescuers and are in use on an almost daily basis.

The benefits of tracking can probably best be described by a Duke of Edinburgh Leader:

"Burton Duke of Edinburgh Open Award Group is one of the largest in the Staffordshire.

We often have up to 100 candidates in the field undertaking map reading and navigation assessments and then camping out.

It is vital that we know where the Groups are located and ensure that they follow the correct routes, or at least have the ability to correct their errors and we are in control of all risks.

We elected to use Mapyx Quo for routing and tracking.

We can now track all of our groups in the field, know where they are at any time and mobilise Leaders to advise when necessary.

Last weekend we had 85 students on assessment and all groups were tracked throughout. Leaders could simply radio into base station to determine locations of groups and analyse any navigation errors.

This provided the Leaders with essential information to optimise safety of the candidates whilst increasing the groups feeling of independence.

One of the candidates suffered a minor emergency and the candidates followed proper protocol, radioed in the problem and Leaders were immediately informed and mobilised to an exact location.

The Mapyx technology permits us to educate candidates safely and ensure that we can immediately respond to any situation quickly and efficiently." Burton - DofE Leader - September 2010.
