Terrain and map

Tallinn Zoo is composed of two types of terrain: city and forest. The city terrain is composed of the zoo visiting area with animal cages and different houses. Additionally there are some park areas on the city terrain. The forest terrain is composed of pine and spruce forest with good runnability. There are some green areas where runnability is slightly poorer. The terrain has many rocks and only the biggest rocks have been mapped. The road network is adequate. Height differences are small.

Hazards on the terrain: there is an adventure course in the competition area. Most of the attractions are located higher on the trees, but there are constructions also at lower altitudes.

Please be careful! There are many controls on the terrain, check the identification number! Be aware of the specific ISOM forbidden and allowed symbols for the sprint map

Size of the map is A4, scale 1:5000, contour interval 2m. Last update of map in 2015. The map is printed on waterproof paper.
