One of the most significant features added in iVe Software version 3.3 is the ability to animate tracklogs! This feature allows users to play a tracklog in real time. It gives users the ability to visualize events as they unfolded and helps identify time, location and duration of stops as well as sequences of events. This feature has been available in the iVe Mobile app as of its version 3.0, and now users have the same capability in the desktop software.
To use the animation feature, select the tracklogs parent node in the tree, right-click the desired tracklog in the grid, and select ‘Animate Track.’ A separate window will appear.
The ‘play’ button in the lower-left corner can be used to begin or pause animation of the tracklog. The speed button to the lower-right can be clicked to increase the playback speed from 0.5-5x. The map view can be zoomed in and out with the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons or adjusted by clicking on the screen and dragging in the direction you want to see. These controls will allow you to explore the areas along the vehicle’s path to determine their importance to your case. As events occur along the tracklog, they are displayed in the top portion of the window. Clicking on an event will display additional details.
