International Specification for Mountain Bike Orienteering Maps

Posted on | July 9, 2010 | Category: News

Orienteering is a world-wide sport. A common approach to the interpretation and drawing of orienteering maps is essential for fair competition and for the future growth of the sport. The IOF has now published a new version of the International Specification for Mountain Bike Orienteering Maps.

It is the aim of the International Specification for Orienteering Maps to provide a map specification which can accommodate the many different types of terrain around the world and the many ways of doing orienteering. Map specifications for mountain bike orienteering are based on the specifications for foot orienteering maps. However, in order to meet the specific requirements put on the map by the nature of mountain bike orienteering, a complete and separate set of specifications is described in this set of rules.
