The Technion map   Leave a comment

During the summer I finished the updated map of the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) – behind schedule, due to both my health problems and the complexity of the terrain.
The map is an update of my previous map from 2000, but my mapping standards have obviously changed since then, and I had to add a lot of detail in addition to mapping all the changes in the area. The OCAD work took more time than the fieldwork, and was finished during my lunch breaks at the office. Basically it's a university map on an area of only 0.8 km2, but because it's on a steep slope everything is very complicated, and it can be used for sprint orienteering at the highest level.

I'm glad this project is behind me, because I enjoy sprint mapping much less than forest mapping. I'll keep updating the map incrementally once in a while, so that I don't get stuck with it again in 2022!
