Orienteer any time at Chatswood West using MapRun

Thank you to our Treasurer, Istvan Kertesz, who has put his running shoes on and with Nikki Halmai's help, conquered the vagaries of GPS-driven course setting on a GPS-referenced map at Chatswood West.  Plus, thank you to Carol Jacobson for doing all the mapping side of things for this creative suite.

Notably, any mapper should be cognizant of the GPS situation whenever they put pen to paper to draw a particular feature onto a map.  Alas, back when most of our city maps were created, the digitisation of maps to integrate with global position systems as part and parcel of eventing was never envisaged.  Plus, the challenges of mapping Sydney sandstone configurations, has led to some 'mapper's licence'.  Hence, creating MapRun-compatible courses require lots (and lots and lots) of checking.

Garingal now presents another series of 5 courses at Chatswood West using the smartphone app MapRunF.
