Question and answer
how do you orient a map without using a compass
It is a process where I involve both map and compass. Of course, orienting a map can be done without a compass and done visually. [ I find using a compass takes just a tad more time and the more hands on time with the compass the better. Correctly orienting my map allows me to get “dialed in” to my surroundings. It is a process where I align the map, compass and GPS to the terrain before me. This orientation procedure is a great opportunity to involve young people in backcountry navigation. Give them a quick review of topo basics and your plan before starting out. A topo is your key
to the backcountry. It unlocks the critical information regarding sources of water, woodlands, trails, roads, grid information and elevation. I use a US Geologic Survey (USGS) map at the scale of the map should be 1:24,000. National Geographic has superb topos of the National Parks and you may find quality maps of this scale of the area you will travel in. Quality outdoor, printing and mapping stores will have such a map available. While you get comfortable with a hard copy paper map, experiment with map software ( or internet sites that offer free maps ( Aerial imagery such as Google Earth ( compliments the topo ]
