The paper processes the utilization of new types of altimetric data for the preparation and creation of orienteering maps. Specifically, it is about using LIDAR data distributed in the form of raw data with a density of about 1.6 point per square meter, or in the form of a triangulated irregular network derived from this type of data. Furthermore, the possibilities of the altimetric and vegetation cover creation from digital elevation models and digital surface models are mentioned. On a practical example, the paper discusses the interpretation of terrain shapes from the LIDAR data and shows the differences between earlier orienteering maps prepared and mapped using old ‘classic’ techniques and data, and a new map designed using the new altimetric data and models.
