Orienteering is where orienteers use an accurate, detailed map and a compass to find points in the landscape.
The objective of the sport is to use a map and compass to navigate a terrain and being able to complete the route in a specific time-limit. This is a sport to help those participating work on their navigational skills. The winner is the orienteer who has the fastest time.
Orienteers work as a team to navigate through the course.
