Orienteering utilises very specific maps to navigate any given terrain, and there is an International Standard to which they are produced. Items on the maps are indicated in different colours.
Brown shows landforms such as hills and ditches, represented using contour lines to indicate steepness or depth.
Black shows rock formations such as boulders and cliffs, as well as man-made objects such as roads, buildings and fences.
Blue indicates water features such as lakes, rivers and ponds.
White usually shows open forest.
Green is a denser forest, with the darker the green indicating the density of vegetation. Green vertical stripes show areas with dense undergrowth but good visibility.
Yellow shows open areas.
Magenta is used for overprinting symbols such as the start and end points, control points, first aid posts and refreshment points.
