The History of Maps
Understanding where our maps originated and how they were developed inspires trust and a sense of responsibility. We gain trust in the accuracy of the map knowing how much work has gone into measuring and printing these constantly changing documents. We feel a sense of responsibility to follow the map which describes our rights of way and the safe routes to follow.
The Different Map Scales and Choosing the Right Map
This section will provide you with a clear understanding of what each mapping scale offers and which maps to consider buying when planning your adventure.
The Features on the Map
In this part of the session we will look at the most common features on a map. We will discuss how they can assist us when planning our route and how the features support us to make safe decisions while outside exploring our route.
This session sets the foundation for you to continue onto more advanced map reading and navigation. Check out more events here
