(A collection of guides, tips and hints on how to use this popular mapping
OCAD is the standard for drawing maps in Park-Street orienteering in
Melbourne; the standard version of the package provides a minimal set of
tools that is easy to learn but still meets the needs of even the most
experienced mapper. The reality is, however, that the tool is quite flexible
and that there are often many ways to do even the simplest activity. These
web pages are provided as a guide:
- For those with little OCAD experience - e.g. people that have
been given an OCAD map and asked to set a course.
- For those that have used the package for a while that would like
to comply with local 'standards' for maps or exploit some of the
ideas here to make their maps more maintainable.
