For fairness reasons we now publish automatically generated maps covering the embargoed areas. These maps could be generated by persons, who have access to a certain database,and to ensure equal possibilities for all nations to prepare for the WOC the organiser in cooperation with the Event Advisers have made this decision.



Using a LiDAR-based elevation model and the Swedish Land Survey’s Fastighetskartan product, a computer can automatically generate orienteering maps. This technique, coming into use during recent years, provides great opportunities to create base maps of high quality. The computer program Karttapullautin has been used to translate the elevation model to contour lines, cliffs, open ground and dense vegetation. The Fastighetskartan map provides information about roads, paths, buildings, power lines, lakes, marshes and streams. The final product is a map that largely resembles a human-made orienteering map. Note that the contour interval on those maps are 2,5 meters.

Those who have helped us with the procurement of the maps are Jarkko Ryyppö, Joakim Svensk and Mats Troeng.
