For Teams

[31-March 2020] – Postponement of WOC2020

The Covid-19 Pandemic has great consequences all over Europe and the rest of the world. As the situation is looking presently, we regard it to be impossible to organize a WOC in July with equal and fair training opportunities for everybody. We have therefore decided that:

  • WOC2020 will be postponed to a future date to be announced as quickly as possible.
  • The Selection Races, scheduled to be held on 30-31 May, will be postponed correspondingly. Future dates to be announced.
  • Training Camp 4, scheduled for 11-15 May, will be cancelled.
  • Training Camp 5, scheduled for 1-3 June, is maintained for now. Stay informed on the website.
  • New training opportunities are being planned and will be announced as soon as possible.
  • Bulletin 3, to have been published on 6-April, will appear later – and no later than three months prior to WOC.

For WOC Tour runners, please refer to the WOC Tour page for information.

Thank you for your understanding.

Programme

Accommodation

The Triangle Region offers a wide range of accommodation, from five-star hotels to cabins.

The Triangle Region has many attractions and gets very busy in summer-time. We therefore recommend that you book your accommodation well in advance.

Teams are free to choose their own accommodation. Be aware that some hotels are located inside the embargoed areas. It is your own responsibility to check this and choose accommodation outside these areas.

Embargoed Areas

For reasons of fair play according to IOF competition rules, a number of areas have been embargoed for potential WOC 2020 team members (athletes, coaches, team leaders and other persons who may influence the results of the competition).

The embargoed areas can be viewed at IOF Eventor and/or Google Maps.

Previous Maps

You can view and download previous orienteering maps from within the embargoed areas here.

Geodata

With help from MapMagic we have prepared packages of geodata covering the embargoed areas. With those data, all teams and athletes will be equally equipped with the best geodata available for their preparations. The products are optimized to be used as the primary data basis to produce orienteering maps. The data used and refined by MapMagic are freely available and provided by the Danish Agency for Data Supply and Efficiency. The primary dataset used is “Punktsky” forming the basis of the Danish Height Model (DHM).

The packages comprise the following material:

  • Orthophoto
  • Surface Height Contours
  • Analytical Hillshading
  • Surface Relief Visualization
  • LIDAR Intensity Image
  • Canopy Height Model
  • Vector Data (FOT)
