I'll try it out with you! I think there is more green than it shows, however. And more water (even than the yellow). It could be a sprint map though!
That is a good start! Remember that it is a learning process. You won't master it all at once. But by making maps with KP and then going out to test them you will learn extremely fast how to make them better, while improving your own orienteering.
Thanks! When I have a bit more time I definitely want to make some more of areas around me, and hopefully ones that will be a little bit more useful to train on than this one.
Is there a good guide on how to do this. Looks interesting.
There are some resourses on the OUSA website under the "explore" tab and under "club development". I was taught by my coach so I didn't use them but I think they are pretty reasonable.
You can also hit Jon up for some local help, although he may be using an interface through OCAD to generate his base maps for new mapping projects). I was pretty amazed at how good his vegetation mapping was when I was playing yesterday in some of the areas he hasn't field-checked yet, but I know he also spent some time tweaking the settings to make it more useful.
I don't have OCAD so I've just been using OOM, so that wouldn't work for me (also, probably way too high tech for me). Really there is just something that isn't working for me with the vegetation so I've had to place it myself as opposed to geo reference it so it's not as accurate.
