Personal Orienteering Maps

Michael writes about the perfect Christmas gift for any orienteering-obsessed family – a personalised orienteering map of the house and garden.

With this in mind, I downloaded the Adobe Illustrator CS demo for Mac, the excellent free Map Studio, and some old site plan PDFs from the local council planning department. One quick survey in the snow this afternoon, followed by a bit of experimentation in Illustrator, and the result – one personal orienteering map. I reckon I could just about get a sprint race out of this map… 😉

The full size version, is here. Note, this is the first time I’ve done a map from scratch, so bear in mind there are some “spatial scale fluctuations.”
