Invitation to the International Conference on Orienteering Mapping

Posted on | March 19, 2012 | Category: News

The IOF Map Commission welcomes you to the 15th International Conference on Orienteering Mapping (ICOM) that will take place in conjunction with the World Orienteering Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The conference has become a traditional event where mapmakers and map interested from around the world discuss and share information about the latest mapping standards, techniques and developments in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

The 15th ICOM focuses on Sprint mapping. In addition to sprint mapping, the ICOM will also include presentations on other topics of interest to the world’s community of orienteering mappers. The revision of the ISOM 2000 specification is going on, and will be on the agenda.

The ICOM will be split in 2 sessions:
Friday July 13 at 16–21, indoor session with presentations.
Monday July 16 at 18–21. Mostly outside in city location.

The Monday session will focus on sprint mapping and course setting, and will be organised in cooperation with the IOF Foot Orienteering Commission.

Sprint maps for the discussion in the breaks and the general Map Exhibition, and suggestions for both topics and presentations are very welcome. Please send your proposals to the address mentioned in the Invitation below. 

For more information on the timetable, registrations and other matters, please see the Invitation.
