OpenOrienteering Mapper is an orienteering mapmaking program and provides a free alternative to the existing proprietary solution. Its main advantages compared to it are:

    Open Source: The program is completely free, every programmer can improve it.
    Cross-platform: The program works on Android, Windows, macOS and Linux.

While it is under continuous development and considered in beta state, it has been used to produce maps for classical orienteering, MTBO and radio orienteering races. All required functions for drawing maps are implemented and the program works very stable. So it can be considered ready for productive use, although it is like always a good idea to keep backups of your files. We are happy about feedback to the program.

Main features of the current version include:

    Symbol sets for ISOM 2017-2, ISSprOM (sprint), ISMTBOM (mountain bike), ISSkiOM 2019 (ski), course design and control description sheets
    Import and export of ocd maps and symbol sets (import: version 6 - 2018, export: version 8 - 12)
    Georeferencing (based on PROJ library)
    Working with various kinds of templates:
        Raster images (bmp, jpg, tif, png, gif etc. based on GDAL library), including world files and GeoTIFF
        GPS tracks (gpx)
        Vector data (dxf, osm, shp etc. based on GDAL library)
        Geospatial PDF (based on GDAL library)
        Maps (ocd, omap)
    Working with all important symbol types:
        Composite symbols
    Drawing tools and many editing tools for objects
    Printing, PDF, KMZ and raster image export for getting the map into course setting programs
        Overprinting simulation (raster output)
        CMYK PDF export (vector output)
    Translated into more than 20 languages

The online manual can give you more ideas of what the program does.
