Your School Map
The MAP is central to the sport of orienteering. It contains a wealth of information and the more your pupils understand the better will be their orienteering skills.
So, let’s have a look at the basics of an orienteering map. An orienteering map is made up of 5 colours: Black, Brown, Blue, Green and Yellow. See how these 5 colours make up the detail of the map on the rotating map pictures.
DFOK is able to survey and produce your school map at a nominal cost. The map is drawn up in special orienteering software, OCAD, and supplied to you in pdf format for printing. DFOK retains the OCAD file for future updating/amendments.
However, once you have your school map, there is continued support from DFOK to assist you in developing orienteering within your school.
