Using the map and the compass
The terrain is usually in a altitude between 1'000 and 3'000 meters above sea level. Its character is mostly alpine. We use the Swiss national maps scale 1:25'000 / 20m contours.
Each team gets one special map. This special reproduction of the Swiss Federal Topography makes an extended choice of the competition region possible. There are not multiple maps required anymore to get the region exactly in the middle of all those maps. The Swiss national maps are very exact and very detailed. In the regions of the mountains there are rarely heavy changes in the natur. The maps are still on the latest stand. The signatures are not printed on the special map. The maps may be available in many book stores or on the web. For more informations please visit this page www.swisstopo.ch
