Map and compass


Orientation and navigation are essential while hiking or trekking. Usually people are either using marked trails, a cell phone app or any other kind of GPS device in order to locate their position and find their way to go. Is the usage of a map and compass outdated? 

By no means!

  • Working and planning intensively with a map gives us a perfect overview of the terrain, the route ahead of us, prominent features in the surroundings, inclines and declines and a good idea what to expect.
  • We are independent from GPS signals and empty batteries
  • In the worst case we might be able to determine our position and navigate cross-country to a safe place, that we might no even see along the way

We will learn in this compact class how to use a map, a romer and a compass in theory and also get some hands-on experience.
