Back to the Books Page Map Reading Skills is Terry Marsh`s Jarrold Pathfinder guide providing an introduction to map reading and the skills needed for basic navigation. The guide covers a range of navigation techniques, including working out magnetic north, understanding contours, distance and heights and reading and interpreting maps. There is also advice on identifying roads, tracks and footpaths and both natural and man-made features of the landscape such as vegetation, rivers and streams and outcrop and scree. Detailed advice on planning a walk using a map and compass is also featured, along with practical guidance on walking using a compass. Basic techniques such as estimating distance on the ground, pacing, dealing with obstacles and aiming off are also covered, alongside information on GPS and other map-reading technologies.
