Orienteering Facts
===========================

Orienteering is a sport for all ages in which the participant uses a detailed topographic map and a compass to find pre-marked locations (controls) that are shown on the map.

It usually takes place in a forested area or a park, although it can be done on city streets.

Participants in the sport are called orienteers.
