Course Notes

Detailed course notes are forthcoming.  No model maps, although warmup map may be included (not in competition area).

Day 1

Boise State University is one of the urban CTOC maps, and has undergone several revisions as the campus expanded and to bring it in line with current international sprint mapping conventions.  Sergey Velichko is revising the map in 2016-2017.

Day 2-3

Trap Creek and Dutch Lake, nearly adjacent, both mapped in 2014 by Alexey Zuev.

For those new to orienteering, the maps are more detailed than a normal topographic map.  A quick guide at the OUSA website can be found here.

Embargoed areas are below (in general this means no training with a map of any kind in these areas prior to the event, including coaches or supporters who may provide information to competitors):
