How is the speed calculated in the tracker
?? ?

I did not understand how speed is calculated when using the tracker. Please tell me how speed is calculated. When I tried to use xy coordinate calculation, the result showed that it was not calculated based on distance divided by time. Please help me answer this question when you have time.

Look at Tracker help and search for "algorithm".
