Intended for children, this book provides a complete guide to understanding, reading and using maps and compasses. Designed as a fun activity book, it teaches such skills as identifying latitude and longitude; reading map symbols, abbreviations and scales; setting a map or compass and orientating by them; planning a trip using a map; or making a map for a journey through the wilderness. Ideal for individuals, scouts or groups that encourage outdoor activity, the book features illustrations and activities. While coverage focuses on the use of maps and compasses on a local scale, the author also examines how they can be applied to national or worldwide orienteering.
