To help prepare, you might be interested in reading this interview with Remo
Remo Madella has been hired by the club to update a number of maps in and around Calgary. Remo will talk about his projects and about the technology and methodology that he uses for mapping. In particular he will talk about the modern way of doing fieldwork with a tablet and GPS that speeds up work and improves accuracy.
Why should you attend?
- If you are interested in making maps you can't miss this opportunity to see how world class mappers are doing their work and learning how you can use the latest techniques
- As an orienteer, if you want to improve your map-reading and orienteering decision making (i.e. reduce errors, pick better routes, etc) then you will learn a lot about how maps are made, what decisions go into choosing which features are put on the map and which are left off, and how features are represented. This is a rare and valuable opportunity to hear it directly from the mapper.
