Specification for control descriptions updated

The specifications for the control descriptions have been slightly adapted by the International Orienteering Federation IOF and published as ISCD 2024.

The new symbol sets are valid from 1 January 2024 and are already available in OCAD (Menu File > New > Course Setting project for orienteering).

The most important changes:

  • Color of the control description on map now black by default (optionally still purple, see the Course Setting Options).
According to IOF, control description sheet on map should be printed in black.
New symbols for map filp and railway are shown.
You can change the color of the control description in the Course Setting Options either to black or purple.
  • New symbol added for a map flip (turn the map over).
  • New symbol added for a railway or tramway.
