Orienteering maps are topographic maps, which show many details such as boulders, cliffs, small marshes, or pits. They also show forest density, a crucial information for making a route choice. Orienteering maps are usually at a scale of 1:10 000, and 1:5000 for Sprint competition in parks or urban areas. They are mostly made by volunteers, who are also orienteers themselves.
The Ramblers Orienteering Club has several maps in the Montreal Region:
