To recap, maps come in all sizes, shapes, and scales, but the standards used in orienteering competitions include the 1:15,000 orienteering map for the top men’s and women’s course, the 1:10,000 map for most courses (those below the top two elite courses), and the 1:5,000 or 1:4,000 for specialty events such as the sprint and trail orienteering courses. Remember also that map scales are fractions, so a 1:5,000 map is considered a larger scale map than a 1:15,000 map (which can be a little confusing).

Most compasses have one or more scales to translate distances on the map into meters on the ground. 5 centimeters on the scale is 350 meters on the ground on a 1:10,000 map. You will learn more about measurement when you learn about the skill of distance estimation by measure and pace, but the key is that all you have to do is use the appropriate scale on the compass and measure correctly on the map. Then you will know how far to go. The scale for the longest and hardest orienteering courses (the blue and red courses) uses a ratio of 1:15,000.

Chapter 3 will now introduce the two most common tools for navigating—the map and the compass. Chapter 3 Map and Compass 28 Discovering Orienteering Orienteering is a skill sport that is based on land navigation and requires the use of tools to navigate. Although there are five skills based on the tools for navigation, there are only two tools required for land navigation— the map and the compass. As you will learn in this chapter, one of these tools is more important than the other. Let’s start with the two tools, map and compass, and progress in chapter 4 to the five skills associated with the map and compass.
