Occassional thoughts about orienteering

More tiny mapsGiovanni posted a comment that included links to some tiny maps in Italy. Check out this and this.
I'm not really sure how useful these tiny maps are. They could be good to show people what orienteering is about and to share with school and scout groups who want to learn about orienteering.
Even if they aren't all that useful, they are fun (and quick) to make. Using a combination of basemap material from the internet and OCAD it is fairly easy to create a tiny map.
Where I live you can find some good basemaps for Johnson County through the AIMS online mapper and for Lawrence through the city's GIS. I think a lot of other cities and counties have similar online mapping tools.

I have been oogling my local Ramsey County GIS website which has an interactive map similar to Lawrence. There is even a layer with contours for some areas of the map. My question for you is this, what is the best way to obtain basemap usable in OCAD 8 off of GIS applications such as these?Post a Comment
