When you have your school orienteering map you will need to draw up a number of courses and exercises on the base map.

This is easiest done by using a piece of free software called Purple Pen which can be downloaded from:   http://purplepen.golde.org/

Purple Pen requires you to have a copy of your map installed as a background map and the pdf file of your map is compatible.

Below there are links to three videos to help you get to grips with Purple Pen.

Part 1 - Covers setting up your pdf file in Purple Pen
Part 2 - Covers setting up your school POC in Purple Pen
Part 3 - Covers setting up courses in Purple Pen.

These videos have been produced quite quickly as many schools are now using Purple Pen and they will be ‘refined’ over the coming months.
