Synopsis by Leslie Birdwell

Silva Compass produced this how-to video on finding your way around using a compass and a map. Viewers are shown how to gain an accurate bearing from a compass, how to read the contours on a topographic map and recognize the "shape" of the land, how to measure distances on a map and plot a course from landmark to landmark, and how to adjust their bearing for magnetic declination. Mastering these skills should improve the outdoor enthusiast's ability to get off the beaten track -- and to find his or her way back.
