Making an Orienteering Map in Seven Basic Steps
From Open Street Map to (nearly) Finished Map
1) My Map Project Area in Open Street Map
There is less to start with here than usual. However
the road and river will give a valuable starting
framework. Unseen in the file is important geo-
referencing information that will come in handy with
later information imports.
The area information imported into OCAD 2020 The area information imported
into Open Orienteering Mapper
The OOM preliminary
information converted
to orienteering symbols
I find both mapping programs are very good. Some prefer
OOM because it is free to use. I prefer OCAD because I am
making a lot of maps and it automates some functions that
end up saving me a lot of time.
2a) 2b)Or
Contour Detail Added
In this case the LiDAR contour detail came
from the government of the Province of
Quebec, Canada. (Thanks to Vladimir
Gavrilov of Montreal for his help.) The geo-
referencing of the original map made
positioning of the contour information
automatic and quick.
For similar maps in the United States my go-
to source for LiDAR contour information is a
site called the USGS National Map Viewer.
3)
In many settings valuable and time-saving information can be found from aerial images such as Google Earth.
OCAD 2020 gives the mapper the ability to import the images geo-referenced directly into the maps background.
Otherwise the mapper can manipulate the image into place. Either way it is a great time saver as well as improving
the map product.
A typical aerial image
The image imported into the
map background and detail –
in this case clearings – traced
onto the map
4) Using Satellite / Aerial Images
The geo-reference information in the files of both
the map and aerial image allow my OCAD program
to align the two perfectly with one touch of the
button.
An additional preliminary time saving step is to check an online service such as Strava Heat Map.
The Strava map will show us where hikers, joggers, cyclists, equestrians etc. have gone in the area and recorded their route.
Usually the darker the shown route the more heavily travelled is the path.
5) Strava Global Heat Map
A clip from the Strava Global Heat Map
The Heat Map in our map background
The Strava map will not replace the need to check
those trails for accuracy. However it does show the
field checker where the trails are likely to be.
With information from background
images and Strava this is about as far as
one can get the map.
Next comes checking the area for
additional important details. This is called
field work.
Field Work
To make the map useful for orienteering the mapper
must take the base map out to the area and compare it
to the terrain. Details visible to a person on foot and
important to the orienteer are added/ corrected or
sometimes deleted when they are found to be gone.
Many field workers today take a
mapping tablet with them and do the
field corrections directly onto the
computer.
I’m a bit ‘old-school’. I use a map
board and mylar sheet over the map
with coloured pencils for drawing.
GPS tracks (shown here in purple)
back up my work.
6)
Voila!
A few pleasant days in the forest or park and
the mapper finds the area actually looks like
this. Just add some important ‘layout details’
and a course then the map is ready for
orienteering.

Making an Orienteering Map in Seven Basic Steps

  • 1. Making an Orienteering Map in Seven Basic Steps From Open Street Map to (nearly) Finished Map
  • 2. 1) My Map Project Area in Open Street Map There is less to start with here than usual. However the road and river will give a valuable starting framework. Unseen in the file is important geo- referencing information that will come in handy with later information imports.
  • 3. The area information imported into OCAD 2020 The area information imported into Open Orienteering Mapper The OOM preliminary information converted to orienteering symbols I find both mapping programs are very good. Some prefer OOM because it is free to use. I prefer OCAD because I am making a lot of maps and it automates some functions that end up saving me a lot of time. 2a) 2b)Or
  • 4. Contour Detail Added In this case the LiDAR contour detail came from the government of the Province of Quebec, Canada. (Thanks to Vladimir Gavrilov of Montreal for his help.) The geo- referencing of the original map made positioning of the contour information automatic and quick. For similar maps in the United States my go- to source for LiDAR contour information is a site called the USGS National Map Viewer. 3)
  • 5. In many settings valuable and time-saving information can be found from aerial images such as Google Earth. OCAD 2020 gives the mapper the ability to import the images geo-referenced directly into the maps background. Otherwise the mapper can manipulate the image into place. Either way it is a great time saver as well as improving the map product. A typical aerial image The image imported into the map background and detail – in this case clearings – traced onto the map 4) Using Satellite / Aerial Images The geo-reference information in the files of both the map and aerial image allow my OCAD program to align the two perfectly with one touch of the button.
  • 6. An additional preliminary time saving step is to check an online service such as Strava Heat Map. The Strava map will show us where hikers, joggers, cyclists, equestrians etc. have gone in the area and recorded their route. Usually the darker the shown route the more heavily travelled is the path. 5) Strava Global Heat Map A clip from the Strava Global Heat Map The Heat Map in our map background The Strava map will not replace the need to check those trails for accuracy. However it does show the field checker where the trails are likely to be.
  • 7. With information from background images and Strava this is about as far as one can get the map. Next comes checking the area for additional important details. This is called field work.
  • 8. Field Work To make the map useful for orienteering the mapper must take the base map out to the area and compare it to the terrain. Details visible to a person on foot and important to the orienteer are added/ corrected or sometimes deleted when they are found to be gone. Many field workers today take a mapping tablet with them and do the field corrections directly onto the computer. I’m a bit ‘old-school’. I use a map board and mylar sheet over the map with coloured pencils for drawing. GPS tracks (shown here in purple) back up my work. 6)
  • 9. Voila! A few pleasant days in the forest or park and the mapper finds the area actually looks like this. Just add some important ‘layout details’ and a course then the map is ready for orienteering. 7)
