Use New Map Wizard to quickly create a georeferenced orienteering base map. Even correctly oriented to magnetic north if you like. The process uses Open Street Map (OSM) and converts to your selected OCAD symbol set. You can easily add more symbol translations to the CRT translation file.
Simply want to georeference a new blank base map or any existing map? The process is much the same but use the resultant georeferenced map as a background map to georeference. Generally OSM major road junctions are best and they don’t have to be on the orienteering area.
WMS Server (under Background Maps in menu) is a fast and efficient way of obtaining base map data in the form of background maps or map data.
A 12 minute mp4 video of the process using LandTasmania Spatial Web Services as an example, can be downloaded from Google Drive. (Unfortunately an audio issue with online Screencast prevents easy online viewing).
While the Guide covers the basics of drawing those wonderfully useful and professional looking Bezier curves, there is also a sheet of exercises (image at right) that I find very useful. This Bezier exercises OCAD file is found in OCAD at File | Open Sample Map by selecting Samples / Bezier / BezierExercise.ocd
You will also notice a BezierExerciseResult.ocd file to check your attempt against. The image at right can also be used as a drawing template by loading it as a background image via Background Map | Open and navigating your way to the Samples / Bezier folder within the OCAD 11 program folder. Or if you want a version with English translation then download it here – Bezier exercise with English translation
