Event Types and Scoring Schemes
MapRun supports the following event types, which are set by including the relevant code in the course file name:
- Line Course - traditional orienteering format, with the winner being the fastest to visit the controls in the defined sequence (Code: PXAC)
- Scatter - visit controls in any order, with the winner having the fastest time. (Code: PXAS)
- Scatter (Specific Number) - visit the designated number of controls (from a larger set), with the winner having the fastest time eg any 16 controls out of 20. (Code: PXASxx where xx would be 16 in this example).
- Score - visit as many controls as possible in a defined time period, gaining points per control, with the winner having the highest points score. (Code: ScoreXyyy - where ScoreX is described below and yyy is the time in minutes).
