What happened before




We are finishing a map for Croatian Middle Distance Championship 2009
April 25th 2009 | Jan Drbal
I've been mapping in the north of Croatia near Novi Marof (about 70km north-east from Zagreb) in the first half of April, together with Milan Bílý a Roman Horký. In these days I'm finishing drawing. On the map Lužec there is going to be organized Croatian Middle Distance Championship on 6th June 2009 by club OK Medimurje. You can find some articles about our mapping there (in Croatian), incl. photos and also map samples, on the club blog. On competition's website there should be shown more details about it later. In Croatia we've found nice, almost summer weather, an attentive care (not only by orienteers from OK Medimurje, but also by members of local MTB club - they are already looking forward to try MTBO in their home forest). And, on top - the great terrain for challenging middle distance race - hundreds of small or medium sized depressions and pits in mostly "white" beech forest, and in contrast to other carsty terrains, the ground is absolutely rocky-free. You have to slow down just by your head to have things under control all the time - of cource during the race. Anyway, during the mapping too:). My recommendation! The competition is open for everybody, deadline for applications is approx. 1 week before the competition.















Portugal added
April 14th 2009 | Jan Drbal
I will complete my profile and map portfolio gradually. It means to add in just one hundred of new projects, besides our existing 13 shared maps. So, it will takes some time. First I'm pasting all (two) maps in Portugal from December 2007.

Gladly confirming the previous message
April 14th 2009 | Jan Drbal
Ivo invited me to take part in Holiday Mappers project, although I seem to go beyond the definition of H.M.: I make maps not only on holidays:) I've accepted the offer with pleasure. Ivo has been my friend already for almost 14 years. I think we have also very similar look on the way an orienteering map should be done. Actually, our first collaboration came just on occasion of my first mapping experience - revision of the map Klínek in winter 2001.

Mapping for 5 days in Spain break down
January 21st, 2009 | Ivo Haban
After three months of mailing about the mapping speed, basemaps and the conditions we lost the mapping offer in Spain, prepared for March 2009. The mapping session for Trofeo Internacional Diputacin de Palencia wont be realize, but it seems there could be some "next" in the future.

World ranking event in Liberec 2009 won't be prepared by Holiday Mappers
November 29th, 2008 | Ivo Haban
Regarding to the unsuccesfull discussion about a mapping timetable and the conditions I stop to endeavour to do the maps for World ranking event and czech cup relay in Liberec in September 2009. The indistinct situation about the competition organized by Slavia TU Liberec during July-October 2008 caused there is not time enough for me to guarantee this project seriously.
