6. Pitch Settings

Note: You need to set-up the pitch only in “Game” mode. In practice mode, you can skip that step as the pitch coordinates will not be taken into consideration.

Differences between Game and Practice

Game

  • You need to set-up the pitch.
  • The heat-map representing the position of the pitch is displayed in the “Individual Player” statistics and the main .pdf report.
  • Only the measures that take place within the pitch (plus a buffer zone of 5 meters around the pitch) are taken into consideration for the statistics calculation.
  • Example of Heat Map.

Practice

  • You don’t need to set-up the pitch.
  • No heat-map is displayed.
  • All the recorded data during the selected time period are taken into consideration for the statistics calculation regardless of any pitch. E.g. ideal if you went jogging outside of a pitch area.

Note on precision

The precision of the pitch is dependent on “Google Map” precision. There could be a slight difference in the absolute precision.
It has no impact on the statistics’ precision as long as the recorded data are within a buffer of 5 meters..
The recorded data have a very high relative precision, statistics accuracy are not impacted. The only potential impact is in the Heat Map representation.
