  • Slide 1
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Controller must check the quality of the printed map Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 2
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Guidelines for WREs Traditional spot colour, offset printing is best practice WREs permit non-offset printed maps if: the quality is very good overprinting effect of spot colour printing is simulated paper is suitable compares favourably with the PrintTech test sheet (spot colour, offset) approved by MC (3 months prior to event) Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 3
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing WREs map approval process for non spot colour, off set Event Advisor to check quality If OK 3 course maps and 3 test sheets sent to MC MC will either: approve suggest how to make improvements reject Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 4
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Aust Digital Printing Policy 2.10 For the Australian Long Distance Championships, where the map is particularly detailed, the scale for 16 - 40 year age classes may be 1:10000 with approval of the OA Director, Technical (OA Rule 15.3). map must still be legible at 1:15000 with spot colour, offset printing For Group A Events, map deviations need the approval of the OA Mapping Officer (OA Rule 15.1) 3 months notice required map samples or PrintTech test sheet should be provided re suitability of the printing method digital printing is OK if there is no significant loss of line quality, legibility, colour appearance and map durability (OA Digital Printing Policy) Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 5
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Printers (14th ICOM, Trondheim, Norway, 2010) 5 or 6 colour spot colour, off-set using Pantone (PMS) colours is best practice 7 colour off-set (CMYK + brown + green + purple) is very good for large print runs 7 colour digital offset (CMYK + orange + violet + turquoise), wet toner transfer, is good for low print numbers 6 colour off-set (CMYK + brown + brown + purple) is good 5 colour off-set (CMYK + purple) is not suitable 4 colour laser (dry toner transfer) is not suitable at all Reality 4 colour CMYK laser printers used widely in Aust Spot colour, off-set maps printed for elites at Aust Champs, but not always Switzerland has printed CMYK, off-set since about 2005. Includes World Cup and other WREs Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map

  • Slide 7
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Use the IOF Map Commission Print Tech Project test sheet to: Check print quality Check colours Spot colour, offset sheets available Check for: Sharp edges, no zig zag Even colours No stripes No moire effect Vertical & horizontal accuracy Do contour lines have the same appearance over the colour screens ie often a problem over mid & dark green Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 8
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Use colour blocks on the map to check against the PrintTech colour sheet Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 9
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Check the colour Purple CMYK 43 91 00 00 CMYK 30 100 15 00 Recommended Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 10
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Example: Controller to check print quality and colours of the course map Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 11
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Example: Use the same print setting for all course maps Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 12
  • 3 Map specifications 3.5 Printing Paper quality bright white paper (not off-white) for best colour contrast matt finish (not glossy or shiny) paper weight: 80 120g/m2 durability of paper in all conditions need for a plastic bag, thickness: 0.10mm texture and folding ability suitable papers: G-print 80-120gsm, Impress DM Matt 100gsm, Colour Copy 100gsm suitable waterproof paper: Teslin150 gsm, Pretex150 gsm Map size should not be larger than is necessary recommended sizes are A4 and A3 Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 13
  • 4 Explanation of symbols 4.1 Land Form 4.2 Rocks & Boulders 4.3 Water & Marsh 4.4 Vegetation -Controller to check Runnability ie running speed through the forest open forest80-100%white slow running60-80%light green difficult to run20-60%mid green very difficult to run0-20%dark green nb Sprint maps have 4 Greens (very dark green / not to be crossed) 4.5 Man-made features -Special man-made features to be defined in the map legend ie Special man-made feature car wreck Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 14
  • 4 Explanation of symbols 4.6 Technical symbols Magnetic declination Check on site with compass Check geomagnetic data at Geoscience Australia Spacing of N lines 150m 1:5000/4000 250m 1:10000 500m 1:15000 20 - 40mm on map Breaks in N lines Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 15
  • 4 Explanation of symbols 4.7 Overprinting symbols Overprint effect of spot colour printing is required for WREs No overprint effect Overprint effect & transparency Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 16
  • 4 Explanation of symbols 4.7 Overprinting symbols For multi-age competitions in which both 1:10000 & 1:15000 maps are used, the size of the symbols on the 1:10000 may be 150% larger than on the 1:15000 maps Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 17
  • 5 Field Checking 5.1 Using GPS for controlling OCAD can create files for exporting to Google Earth and handheld GPS Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 18
  • 5 Field checking 5.2 Using GPS for controlling GPS can help check map accuracy GPS can verify position of control placement when in the field Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 19
  • 6 Check list for controlling the map making process (as per IOF) 6.1 Visits to the terrain & meetings 1st visit: before any mapping suitability of the terrain, any deviations required (seek approval as necessary) getting to know the personnel, timelines, suitability of base maps 2nd visit: after some mapping check sample maps of all terrain types check level of generalisation, map legibility, runnability, etc 3rd visit: mapping complete but subject to corrections check for corrections, quality of mapping map layout & design, credits, logos, special symbols defined 6.2 Controlling during competition no mistakes at map printing no mistakes in control descriptions where will the maps be kept (before and at the event), spares, set of maps for search & rescue, etc Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 20
  • 7 Map deviations 7.1 Some recent Australian map deviations Using two symbol sizes for Termite mounds Using ISOM fence symbols with Sprint maps (Sprint only permits 2) Sprint scale of 1:3000 1:10000 scale maps with 1:15000 scale symbol size Vegetation areas under size Cliff lengths too short Special man made feature not defined Using non standard symbol 7.2 Approved map deviations ISOM symbol 209 Boulder cluster approved for Sprint map as no equivalent symbol for ISSOM (2011 Sprint prologue, WA) Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 21
  • 8 Other considerations Controller and Course setter should use the same software Map: OCAD Course: OCAD, Condes, Corpse, Purple Pen Have a system to track updates, corrections & map changes Ensure sufficient space between the map edge and controls or likely route choices Avoid covering part or all of the legend with the control description The sides of the map should be parallel to the magnetic north lines Map credits Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map
  • Slide 22
  • 8 Other considerations Relays OCAD can handle simple to complex leg variations Team combinations generated automatically by OCAD Team combinations exported to OS Controllers Workshop - The orienteering course map Example: Complex splitting major forking within courses 27 different maps 72 combinations
