Orienteering Australia on:
Mapping workshop in Sydney Aug 29-30
Wednesday, 20 August 2014
ONSW will be conducting a mapping workshop in Sydney on August 29-30.
Alex Tarr, one of Australia's leading mappers, heads an impressive list of presenters. This is the course to attend if you wish to learn how to map an area, and if you wish to take your mapping to the next level.
The workshop will concentrate on work in the field. Emphasis will be on fieldwork with concentration on accuracy, interpretation and legibility. Some knowledge of OCAD will be presumed.
