This option lets you publish a confidential event to the server. This is typically used:
To test new map and course files to confirm that they are compatible with MapRun, or
To publish an event for testing in the field, or
To check the placement of "conventional" controls in the field (to ensure they are on the correct feature),
To note features on the map that need to be updated
To set up a simple event for your own private use.
This feature of MapRun allows you to publish a confidential copy of your map, then use the 6-digit code provided, to access the map.
If you use the event for testing in the field - you will be able to see your present position on the map as you check control sites.
A map file (in KMZ format) ... but you can skip needing a map if you don't have one
A course file (in KML format) ... this is just a set of location pins exported from Google Earth/Google Maps or similar.... but if you just want to see your location on your map, upload a map file, but you don't need a course file as well.
In summary, to use this feature, you need to upload at least a Map or a Course file (and optionally both).
See this document for more information on using CheckSites to check the control sites for a conventional Orienteering event and to note any map updates.
Upload your file(s) at the MapRunners CheckSites page and take note of the 6-digit code you will be given
In MapRun6, tap the menu button on the home screen and select "Check Sites"
Enter the 6-digit code, and your map/course will be available on your phone.
See the MapRun Events page for more details on managing Events in the App.
