Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Cool Orienteering Mapping BlogRudi left a comment yesterday and that inspired me to take a look at his orienteering mapping blog orimaps.blogspot.com It is worth a look.
The first thing you'll notice is that it is written in Italian. Italian is a nice looking language, even if you can't make heads or tales of it (and the little Italian I knew when I was 5 years old is long gone). It also sounds nice to the ear. You can imagine Orimaps being sung in Italian...maybe it'd sound a bit like Gianna Nanini and Edoardo Bennato. Or maybe not. Probably better to use Google translate to read Orimaps.
Orimaps has a nice discussion of mapping with Lidar (aka laserscan) that includes the basemap, fieldnotes, and final map.
I also liked the little map of Matsee and the story of making the map by two mappers each working just 5 hours.
