Description: You understand the basics of an Ordnance Survey map but perhaps you’re a bit rusty. You’d like to feel more fully confident with using a map as well as planning and visualising a route and using a compass when needed. This is a day where, between indoor and outdoor sessions, we place you more pro-actively in the ‘driving seat’ of map work.
We hope that by the end of the day you’ll feel confident to use a compass, understand grid references, understand the uses and shortfalls of technology based map support systems as well as being able to plan and visualise what a route might involve in reality more fully.
Kirk Painting will tutor the course. Kirk is very highly qualified: a Mountain Leader with a military background, he is very experienced and is used to working with adults having taught map skills on a number of levels. Ruth will be working alongside Kirk to facilitate and support this day.
