Navigating with Topographic Maps

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Outdoor Fundamentals: Everything You Need to Know to Stay Safe

Navigating with Topographic Maps

Taught by Professor Elizabeth K. Andre | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

Topographic maps tell you a great deal about the terrain—details that don’t much matter in the civilized world. Professor Andre teaches you how to read these helpful maps, and then she shows you how to use a compass in sync with your topographic map. With a little practice on the trail or on the river, you may never get lost again.
