Update Sprint Maps to ISSprOM 2019

On 1 January 2020 the new ISSprOM 2019 came into force, which defines the mapping standard for sprint orienteering maps.

Sprint maps, which were still drawn according to the old ISSOM 2007 standard, can be easily updated to ISSprOM 2019 using the function Symbol Set Conversion.

We prepared a short Video on YouTube, which explains how to convert your maps to the new standards.

Route Analyzer supports SkiO and MTBO courses

The OCAD Route Analyzer now also works with SkiO and MTBO courses. As usual, you need to download the current Service Update from the Help -> Download Update menu in the OCAD program to use this functionality.

When you open a MTBO or SkiO Course Setting project, you will see the purple bar of the Route Analyzer at the right side. Everything except the tracks/paths is assumed to be impassable, which can be controlled by checking the function Show Impassable Features.

Auto-backup

In the OCAD Prefernces, you can choose an option Create auto-backup when opening OCAD file. Activating it, OCAD will save a backup of every .ocd-file you open. You can also create a backup manually by using the Create Backup funktion in the File menu.

You can set a file path for the auto-backup by yourself. Remember clean out the auto-backup directory from time to time.
