This course will show you how to use information provided by maps, including contour lines, symbols, and coordinate systems. It includes practice with terrain recognition, and It will demonstrate techniques for using a map and compass together to find bearings, adjust for declination, determine your location, follow bearings to reach your destination, and navigate in adverse conditions.
