2003 – Durban, South Africa

There was no dedicated presentation on orienteering maps. One of the ICC participants managed to take part in an orienteering event during the conference.

2001 – Beijing, China

There was one presentation on orienteering maps: László Zentai, Hungary: Development of orienteering maps' standardization

László Zentai also had a chance to take part in the Chinese Orienteering Championships during the Conference. This event was organized close to Beijing, the competition map and some photos are available here (in Hungarian).

1999 – Ottawa, Canada

Personal report

by Dušan Petrovic, Slovenia
There was one event and due to many other activities (technical visits, excursions, commissions meetings etc.) I believe that one is enough. We had it in the afternoon, on Tuesday (try to avoid the day of national delegates meeting!), probably around 5 p.m. and there were more than 70 competitors who took part. The competition area was about one hour walking from the conference center and it covered embassies with surrounding parks, there was also a part of forest. It was Score-O, with limited time of one hour (there were also many non-orienteering runners who competed and just tried). There were also some small symbolic prices, probably from technical exhibitors (I got an Intergraph cup).

1989 – Budapest, Hungary

There were two presentations on orienteering maps according to the abstracts of the conference:

  • Petr Uher, Czechoslovakia: Maps for Orienteering
  • David J. Fairbairn, United Kingdom: Orienteering Mapping and higher education
