Roger is a professional land surveyor and has over 35 years of orienteering experience. He has been surveying and drawing orienteering maps on an amateur basis since 1968.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The course is for orienteers who want to map small areas such as school grounds or local parks. Some knowledge of computer-aided cartography (OCAD) is preferable but not essential. Familiarity with orienteering maps and Windows-based PCs is however essential.
The course will equip you with the basics you need to know in order to undertake the survey and cartography of small areas which can be used for development purposes, such as school grounds and local parks. It is not a general mapping course and it is not a detailed OCAD course.
The course will be mainly practical exercises, both outdoors and indoors. It will cover:
� establishing a base-map
� mapping standards
� equipment needed
� the basics of surveying
� the basics of OCAD
� map reproduction
� sources of funding for school grounds and local parks maps
Further details will be sent to participants, including a brief questionnaire on your experience.
�10.00 including all documentation and handouts. Tea/coffee/juice provided but please bring your own lunch. NB Your orienteering club may be able to pay your course fee for you.
