Orienteering, originated in Sweden, is a kind of movement that relies on maps, north compass and navigation skills to guide from one place to the next specific place, usually held in areas unfamiliar to participants. The organizer will give each participant a map, usually a special directional map, to find the control points indicated on the map. Orienteering is usually conducted in forests, suburbs and urban parks, and also in university campuses. It has a history of 100 years. In 1895, orienteering was officially born as a sports event. The first world orienteering competition was held in 1932. (Wang Na)
