Learn basic navigation skills using map and compass.
Join U.S. Army veteran, Donald “Ski” Sulewski, to learn basic navigation skills using map and compass. In this class you’ll learn how to read a topographic map, the parts of a compass, and how both integrate with GPS. You’ll learn how to use a compass to pinpoint your location through triangulation and then navigate to new location. You’ll also learn how to plan routes using a topographic map. Although this course takes place primarily in the classroom, we’ll also test out our new skills in the field. Maps and compasses are provided, but bring your own if you prefer.
