HOC Maps

The following is a list of maps that HOC has worked on.  Maps in "vector format" are in the orienteering cad program OCAD 8 and can be reproduced by the club as ocd, eps, dxf, and bmp files as well as on paper.  All maps are copy righted and may not be reproduced without written permission.  The reason for this is that the cost of making the maps is very high.  As an example, we spent more than $14,000 producing and updating the Bastrop map.  In order to pay for this we hold orienteering meets on some of our maps.

If an organization wishes to use our maps to put on an orienteering meet or for other events, they may contact us (temp3@mflan.com) for permission to use our maps.  We will try to arrange an equitable use agreement.  For individuals wishing to have our maps for their personal use, our policy is to give out single copies of old maps with courses on them.   Also, there are copies of an older version of the Bastrop map for sale at the Bastrop State Park.  HOC has given permission for the sale of these maps, but HOC receives none of the proceeds.  The proceeds are for the installation and maintenance of the permanent course there, which is not handled through HOC.
