In English: How it Works

HITTAUT STARTS 10th MAY AND RUNS TO 3rd NOVEMBER

Hittaut is a fun way to experience and discover your surroundings. In some of Kristianstad's urban and forest areas, we have placed several checkpoints for you to find. The idea is to find checkpoints by using the map or by map and GPS. You can either use the online map on your mobile phone (download the app on Google play or App store), or you can use the physical map that you get for free (if living in Kristianstad's municipality - otherwise you can collect one for free, see below).

Please note that apart from this page, everything, including the physical map, is in Swedish.

Questions? Please contact us at: kristianstad@hittaut.nu

MAP AND CHECKPOINTS

On the map, the numbered circles indicate checkpoint locations. In the terrain, checkpoints are marked with an aluminium post, each about 1 metre high. Each post has a hittaut-decal, a checkpoint number and a letter code. Write down the letter code on each checkpoint you visit and register them online (see "Register checkpoints and win prizes" below).

There will be a total of 240 numbered checkpoints (in 2019) with colour codes explaining the navigational difficulty.

Green = easy. Accessible by wheels (bike, stroller, wheelchair)
Blue = easy to medium. Checkpoint might be located a bit further from the path.
Red = medium. Checkpoint is located further out in the terrain.
Black = hard. Checkpoint is located in the terrain. Challenging navigation.
Yellow = bike-checkpoint. Perfect for that longer bike ride! Maps are only available here for print out (Här finns kartan - at the bottom of the page). The checkpoints are also visible in the app.

REGISTER CHECKPOINTS AND WIN PRIZES

To register checkpoints you need to create an account here on the hittaut-page. Go to Skaffa ett hittautkonto (this page is only in Swedish). Once you have created an account, you will receive a confirmation e-mail.

When you have logged in, you can register checkpoints and see yours and others' statistics. To register checkpoints, go to the online map (you will find it on "Min sida" and on the "Registrera checkpoints"-page) and then click on a checkpoint to insert the letter code.

By registering checkpoints, you can win prizes: each checkpoint equals one lottery ticket.

It is valuable to us that you register checkpoints, as both our sponsors and we wish to know how many you are participating in the project.

READING THE MAP

Below is a legend showing the most common colours and symbols of the map. The "control" symbol is the same as "checkpoint". There is one important colour missing in the legend: olive green, which denotes private gardens!
