Orienteering maps are drawn specifically to give runners an accurate representation of the terrain that they are moving on. Various colours are selected so as to allow each runner to read them at ease while moving at high speeds. These colours are also internationally agreed upon by all member federations of the IOF, hence an orienteer travelling to a new country is able to pick up the sport with ease.
A copy of the IOF map specification can be found here: https://orienteering.sport/iof/mapping/
For Singapore, our focus are on a sprint maps that cater to a discipline of fast paced running. These maps are further subdivided into parks and urban built up areas.
All park maps are suitable for high speed running. However, do watch out for other park visitors and observe laws governing shared pathways with vehicles (bikes, e-bikes, etc.)

Urban Areas / Campus
The housing estates are a complex yet delicate balance of small manicured parks and towering high rise buildings. Try your hand in navigating the many hidden nodes and cracks of this modern landscape.
All high rise buildings are drawn as a passable canopy, only key features on the ground floor are highlighted (such as staircases and lift landings).
Do note that all housing estates usually involve carpark crossings – be mindful of vehicle movements.
