For many years, a vision of OCAD has been to create a usable orienteering map with just one click.
With the latest OCAD Update we have come a step closer to our vision.
Thanks to freely accessible geodata, excellent maps for Switzerland and Finland can be created with the New Map Wizard. The trend towards freely available geodata can also be observed in other countries and we hope to be able to include these countries in the function as well in near future.
Until recently, there were many symbol sets for drawing school orienteering maps. Therefore, the IOF Map Commission has been commissioned to produce a simple set of symbols for school maps for scale 1:1000 to 1:2500. The basis for the symbol set for school orienteering maps is the ISSprOM 2019. All symbols of ISSprOM 2019 have been enlarged to 125% and 6 additional symbols have been added (see pictures below).
