Frick Park Map Orienteering
Look for checkpoints using only a topographic map
“Orienteering” is a international recreational activity and sport in which participants look for checkpoints (in the form of small flags) using only a topographic map and a compass.
A paper map is basically a 2-dimensional model and representation of a 3-dimensional world, and its design tries to summarize the features of a 3-dimensional world on to a 2-dimensional medium.
Participants identify and recognize features around them and see them represented on the map and thus feel “oriented”.View more
