Going through the web and reading pages related to my GPS device quest, I came across a couple of interesting and very related projects – orienteering and map reading.
Here are few links for serlf education.
- Reading Topographic Maps – A Free On-Line Book on How to Read Topographic Maps and Use a Compass.
- Topo Map Reading Guide – help on how to read topographic maps.
- Learn Orienteering – site that seems to be in some reorganizing stage, but still provides some useful info on how to handle the compass and find your way around if your device doesn’t work.
- Small FAQ at some orienteering club’s web site.
Now I hope you will not get lost. ;)
