Overview Kart, kompass og GPS

Nothing is more important to an outdoors enthusiast than a knowledge of orienteering. It’s all about using maps, a compass and GPS either on their own, together or in combination with other aids. It’s about making the right decisions as you walk so that you save energy and avoid blunders which might lead to dangerous situations. Those with the necessary basis for safe orienteering can walk safely through nature and thereby experience an even greater sense of joy.

This book provides basic information about topographic maps, different types of compasses and techniques for using them, and an introduction to GPS, which is used more and more frequently in addition to a map and compass.
