OCAD and World Orienteering Championships 2021

The World Orienteering Championships (WOC) start this weekend in beautiful terrain around Doksy in the Czech Republic. The competitions will take place from 3 to 9 July.

OCAD is partner of WOC 2021 and played an essential role in creating the WOC maps, arena planning, data preparation and course setting.

We are very much looking forward to great maps, exciting courses and lots of action.

Fill Bounded Area Mode

Use the newly added Fill Bounded Area Mode to automatically fill empty areas that are bounded by various objects from line or area symbols.

The area, that is entirely surrounded by objects will be filled with the selected symbol. If the area is not surrounded entirely by objects, the current view of the drawing window will be filled.

If you work with orienteering symbol sets (ISSprOM 2019, ISOM 2017), the function will ignore certain symbols like contours and north lines.

How it works

Toggle Between Vertices and Segements

There are 3 types of vertices: Normal-, Dash- and Corner Vertices.

Depending on wich Vertex Type you use, it will influence segments and line objects.

If you hold CTRL+SPACE key and click on a vertex, you can toggle through the different vertex types.

To toggle between straight and bezier curve segments, press CTRL+SPACE key and click on a segment.
