Ales Hejna posted about this on Facebook: there’s loads of blogposts about how this Swiss mapper, Thomas Scholl, is being expelled from the Swiss Orienteering Association. It appears from reading this newspaper article that this has a lot to do with his intransigence in restricting a particular orienteering club’s use of maps of their area. But the result of the Association’s decision is that another club will have no access to the maps of their area.

If there’s a lesson to be learnt here, it might be that we should never take our mappers for granted.
