It is an important objective of the International Orienteering Federation (IOF) to support the organisers of High Level Events in obtaining high quality in organising the events. IOF supports the organisers in different ways. The guidelines, manuals and event advising system are among the most important. The IOF Event Overview Tool will from now on contain the WOC and JWOC manuals and serve as an event management tool for:
- the event advising team (EA team)
- the event organizers
The IOF Event Overview Tool outlines a standardised set of functional areas for IOF High Level Foot Orienteering events. Including:
- The full WOC and JWOC manuals in one document as you know them
