British Orienteering School Site Mapping Support

Do you want to get your School site professionally mapped for Orienteering? You could set up your own Permanent Orienteering Course or purchase your own kites to set up your own courses as a great activity.

  • British Orienteering will arrange for a specialist school orienteering mapper to be deployed to your site to produce a computer-generated accurate and professional map in a PDF format.
  • You just need to decide on the area to be mapped. In most cases, this will be your school site.
  • British Orienteering will then mutually agree to the timescales to complete the mapping, typically the lead time is 4 weeks


  • Prices usually start at £600 including VAT depending on the size and complexity of your site
  • School maps will take at least 1 day for surveying and 1 day for the cartography.
