A Virtual Orienteering Course is a set of checkpoints spread around a park or town, created for you to complete, and capture with your smartphone or GPS watch. Together with a map showing where they all are, with the right App your smartphone can magically become a brilliant orienteering device and be a map, a compass and a timer all in one.
