Kiplin Hall event

Seventy-nine people entered the virtual orienteering event at the picturesque Kiplin Hall last Thursday. Phill Batts and Malcolm Hewitson’s courses gave competitors a view of the Hall itself as well as the surrounding parkland, wooded area and finished with a complex challenge for tired brains in the orchard.  The overwhelming response of the runners was that they enjoyed the opportunity to orienteer in beautiful countryside again after so long in lockdown. Competitors of all ages from W1 to W90 took part. It was sprinting all the way and congratulations to Quentin Harding on getting the fastest time on the long course, and to Ruth Ker on being the fastest on the medium course. Full results here.

Mapping webinars

British Orienteering are excited to be hosting a 2 part series of Mapping Webinars, which are now open to book. Suitable for any beginner mappers, would be mappers, or those just looking to understand a bit more about how O maps are made. 
  • Part 1: The Art (and Science) of Mapping: Tues 20 April (7.30-8.45pm) - Covers the background basics to orienteering mapping, including what makes a good orienteering map, symbol key & mapping specs, and how to understand the differences between mappable features which can be regarded as fixed (e.g. roads, buildings and anything visible to satellite imagery) and the more subjective aspects (e.g. vegetation and complex land forms). A practical demonstration of the methodology of updating/improving an existing map will also be provided.
  • Part 2: Surveying & creating base maps: Tues 4 May (7.30-8.45pm) - Covers setting up a map, from selecting the area to generating a base map as well as the basics of contours and georeferencing. The main content of this session will be introducing the various products and packages available for you for creating base maps, including OCAD, and creating base maps using Open Orienteering Mapper / LiDAR and other sources.
Full details including links to register can be found on the British Orienteering website here.
