About this book

Why learn to navigate? Are you new to walking and want to learn the fundamentals of navigation? Or have you been walking for a while but have realized that you are a beginner when it comes to map reading and using a compass? Or maybe you've been navigating for years and just want to brush up your skills?

The ability to use a map and compass correctly is an important skill for all walkers. Cicerone Guide: Map and Compass has been designed to give you all the navigation skills necessary to head to the hills independently and with confidence.

The first part of Cicerone Guide: Map and Compass looks is detail at the map, what you need to know and what you don't, before we move on to using the compass. Finally, we look at more technological ways to make navigation as easy as possible.
