GRAMP Ocad maps

Minor map corrections can be made by the club using OCAD v11 software on the club’s computer.  Please contact the mapping coordinator for advice.

Condes planning software
Check the Condes website for up to date guides and downloads. Gramp has a licence for Condes v9.  Rob Hickling can supply you with the club’s username and password for installing Condes version 9.

Purple Pen planning software
This software is free to use and can be downloaded from the Purple Pen website. It is easy to learn, intuitive to use, and is recommended for small events where you do not need the sophisticated options provided by Condes.
