Field Checking Maps

Meet directors must field check their course while preparing their maps. You are strongly encouraged to report any significant inaccuracies of the maps to the VP of Mapping for revisions as soon as they are discovered. If you can identify simple changes early enough, then it is possible that corrections can be made to the map before the meet.

You can use your smartphone and OCAD to help you with field vetting. This new method can provide more confidence to meet directors that controls are properly placed and/or to determine where we have issues with our maps.

This information was provided by Toby (VP of Mapping). He would love to show you how easy and helpful it is to use your smartphone to help field check your courses. Be sure to ask him about it at the next meet!

We would all really like your help to make our maps better. Please let him know when you find problems!
