    History of ISSOM (development)Main approaches if ISSOM (goals)Lacks of ISSOM (intermediate stage)Experiences of ISSOM in urban areas, SwitzerlandOutlook of ISSOM Discussion / open questions

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Introduction: History of ISSOMAugust 2001: Decision of Extraordinary General Assembly of IOF to integrate Sprint Orienteering as new discipline in to the WOCAugust 2001: Presentation of principles to generate specifications for maps (9th ICOM, Tampere FIN) coloring, bright colors for large areas (example) scale and contour interval relationshipFebruary 2002, Presentation of a working draft Int. specification for Orienteering maps in urban areas No differentiation urban/forest ISSOM must cover all types of terrains

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Introduction: History of ISSOMMay 2002, start collaboration with the map makers of WOC 2003July 2002, First application of the 1. Draft ISSOM in WC Lausanne, Switzerland (1. Test-Print; spot color print)

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Introduction: History of ISSOM2. Test-Print; spot color print, regional event in Switzerland, LiestalNovember 2002: Extraordinary MC-Meeting in Budapest: Discussion of the 1. Draft of ISSOM Lack of time for WOC 2003 Focusing on the definition and graphic implementation part, no application and generalization part.Serie of test print of Compo-City 10 Testprints

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Introduction: History of ISSOMFebruary 2003: Ordinary MC-Meeting in Helsinki: Discussion of the 2. Draft of ISSOM, still many contradictory things Lack of time for WOC 2003 release of a final draft March 2003: release of the final draft to make the specification available for map makers and elite runners for WOC preparations (5 months)Pdf-document and Web-Version

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Introduction: History of ISSOMMay 2003: application of the final draft of ISSOM for the 1. Swiss Sprint Orienteering Champion Ship; Mendrisio (3. Test-Print)July 2003: regional event in Switzerland, Basel (4. Test-Print)June July 2003: Applications of the final draft ISSOM in different countries (Norway, Finland, Hungary etc.)5. August: Sprint final WOC

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Main approaches of ISSOM

    Focus on urban areas, because of WOC 2003 in Rapperswil and not mentioned very much in ISOM 2000Focus on the most important problem: passable an impassable features (walls, fences, private properties)scale 1:4000 or 1:5000contour interval 2 m or 2.5 m

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Main approaches of ISSOM

    recommended map size A4, not larger than A3 the map must show a clear picture of the main level of the terrain (example)the minimum dimension of a feature shown in a map is 2 x 2 m.An object smaller than 2 x 2 m can be shown if it is very visible or high.

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)A map with few well chosen features, will give a much better map, than a map cluttered with many insignificant features. (Eduard Imhof)

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Main approaches of ISSOMRepresent barriers and passages Graphic implementation: overemphasize impassable fences, wall black thick line (0.35mm) reduce graphically passable features gray line / thin line (
  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Main approaches of ISSOMFairplay / Competition rules: declaring that impassable features are also forbidden to pass disqualifying competitors

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Main approaches of ISSOMFairplay / Competition rules: declaring that impassable features are also forbidden to pass adapt this rule to all other features (water body, vegetation features)

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering maps (ISSOM)Lacks of ISSOMContradictory things Content minimum dimension 2m x 2m for urban areas o.k. in forest vegetation patches of 2m x 2m! Undergrowth (green line screen) not suitable in urban areas Flowerbeds corresponds to undergrowth to be consequent, passable cliffs must be represented in gray Application of ISSOM in forest terrainOptimize color setting no money for series of test prints (spot color prints)

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering mapsExperience of ISSOM in urban areas, SwitzerlandStrong cooperation between map maker and course setters is very important (open/close doors, gates, gaps)Course setters may not provoke unfair actions of the competitors (no legs over an im-passable wall/fence)

    Collect experience of ISSOM applicationsPresent the final recommendationStart Hearing of FederationPresent the ISSOM

  • International Specification for SprintOrienteering mapsExperience of ISSOM in urban areas, SwitzerlandAll reasonable measures must be considered to prevent accidents with other human activities in urban areas such as traffic, pedestrians, spectators, etc. (Separate competitors, pedestrians and spectators by the use of a cordon (tape) in crowded areas.)
