Shortcut is OOB, it's a private driveway into and out of the apartment reception. Without the shortcut, the left route taken by Oliver and Sten is the shortest and doesn't have the steep climb up the stairs.

I mapped it according to ISSprOM with no boundary line across the entrances.

Meanwhile there are some items mapped within OOB that shouldn't be there according to ISSprOM (fences, man made objects, boundary lines):


Also the standard isn't overtly clear on this but is this the correct way to map the bridge? It says triangles are used where you can pass underneath but technically you cannot pass underneath through the OOB (as shown by the lack of stripes in those areas). It would likely look pretty messy if you only drew them at the legal passageways though:

Yes, well I drew those step lines in from the aerial before visiting because I didn't know if I'd be marking the areas as 520. Then I looked at Google Street View but decided to leave them until actual fieldwork because some were step lines and some were fences or walls. Then probably either I forgot to remove them or decided to leave them so that people could work out where they were if running along that road.

The bridge was drawn that way because very short sections of the triangle symbol are unsatisfactory - as has been shown at several Australian sprint events since the symbol was introduced, including the 2022 and 2023 Aus Sprint and the 2023 ASOC Sprint.

Agreed, hence my comment. Sometimes you have to take liberties to make the map legible.

I don't think I would have had any trouble recognising that the driveway was OOB if the number for 6 wasn't placed on top of it.
