This plugin is a TrackProcessor that can be executed from within the TrackManager plugin. As it is not a standard plugin, it cannot be executed directly from the usual Icy interface. One as first to launch the Track Manager plugin, click on "add Track Processor" and select "ISBI Challenge Tracks Importer".
