Upgrade of permanent DIY courses in Belair National Park

on .

The permanent courses at Gums Oval in Belair National Park have been upgraded and remapped.  All courses start on the western side of the Gums Oval

The map now has improved contour detail that was automatically generated from LiDAR data captured by Aerometrex, an Adelaide based company providing aerial imaging, photogrammetry, 3D modelling and LiDAR surveys. The data also allows additional processing to create various images of educational value such as ‘hillshade’. There is also an image showing an orienteering map overlaid on Google Earth. These two examples may be downloaded.

The Gums courses are popular for walkers, families, school groups and students studying for example geography. The map is also a great resource for learning the skill of map reading.

There are now four courses comprising two hard navigation courses and one each of moderate navigation and easy navigation.
