A Theme is a collection of settings that control the looks and visibility of objects in the Map View, and default settings for plots. The DataPlayer has three inbuilt Themes – Default, Sports, and Retail – which can be used as a starting point for creating settings that best suit your needs.

Themes can be saved for later use and for example for sharing with other users. Theme files are saved in the QuuppaConfigs folder in the user’s home directory. To import a Theme to DataPlayer, simply drop the quuppatheme file into this folder before launching the application. Similarly, to remove a Theme from DataPlayer, remove the corresponding quuppatheme file, and if you want to rename a Theme, rename its file.

Tip: Current theme settings can also be accessed by double-clicking the map view.


Control the visibility of objects shown on the map. For each object type, there are three visibility options: HideAll, ShowAll, and Custom.

The Custom setting uses the visibility settings of individual objects defined in the project file. For example, some of the Zones in your project may be set invisible. This allows modifying the visibility settings with the Quuppa Site Planner application and loading the modified version of the project file when launching the DataPlayer (See Loading data in the Using the QDP Application section). Individual Zones can be temporarily hidden also from Zone Table. Note however, that the Zone Table settings are not saved.


Control the visibility of Tag labels: names, notes, and heart rate.

Choose to show/hide the velocity vector and height bar (when tracking is done in 3D).

Control the length of the Tag’s tail. This applies to map view as well as XY / XZ / YZ Views.

Control the size of the dot and the font size of Tag labels.

When using the DataPlayer in Live View mode there is an additional setting to:
  • show Real-time Location (with exponential filter, very close to real-time) or
  • show Processed Location (with smoothing spline filter, delayed a few seconds).

Recorded data mode always shows Processed Location.

Plot interval defines how often new points are drawn for Processed Location. This applies to:
  • Tag tail
  • Trajectory plot
  • Heatmap plot
  • Velocity plot (static & dynamic)
  • Coordinate Views (XY, XZ, YZ)

Show position accuracy halo. This indicator can be useful for example in deployments where the coverage varies.

Max position age. When the last received location of a Tag is older than this value, it will be filtered out, e.g. not shown anymore.


Set default values for Velocity and Heatmap plots.
