How To: Use a compass and map to navigate

Use a compass and map to navigate

This video is a step by step guide to navigating using a compass and map. The clip shows a field trip with the instructor showing youngsters how to navigate their way round the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. The compass has to be held firmly to the map so that the north can be seen. The compass can then be placed against the chest and you swivel round until the line on the wheel and the line on the outer disc line up. The grid lines on the compass must run parallel to the gridlines on the map. The direction of the travel arrow must be pointing to the destination. Then the wheel can be set and once again placed against your chest; it gives you the direction of travel.
