Compass Navigation

Compass Navigation In-Person

No Cell signal!? GPS quit working!? Have no fear, it is still possible to find your way. We will teach you how to read the signs and symbols of a topographic map and how to associate the two dimensional map with the three dimensions of the land around us. We'll also talk about magnetic north, true north, and magnetic variation (declination) and how to take a bearing with a compass. We will meet in the Map Library CTL meeting room and then move to the outdoors so please dress comfortably. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own compass.
