OHV Fieldwork Instructions for Park Maps
Outside the Valley Floor

While pioneering sprint orienteering for many years (no-one was doing it when we started O-Max) we successfully used the ordinary mapping specifications, just a larger scale. In 2007 the IOF brought out special mapping specifications for sprints which are tailored to the urban situation, with fairly flat terrain. We think they are not that good for our small rural maps. We'll continue to use the standard specs for these, with 150% symbol sizes (ie the same as for 1:10,000 maps).

Here is some guidance for fieldworkers and cartographers for these maps. There's a companion page for the urban valley floor maps. Right now its more up to date, as that's where the action has been lately (2014).
