Tracking the Iron Dog Race with Python
Every February, a few dozen hardy folks mount their snowmobiles and set off into the wilderness of Alaska, covering over two thousand miles of rugged terrain in 35 hours of racing. They are followed on this journey by thousands of spectators from all over the world.
The Iron Dog team built their Live Race tracker with Anvil. With the race tracker, users can:
- view racers’ progress by viewing them on a GPS map
- view the current leaderboard
- view team information
- view team progress at each checkpoint
