Contour Recognition

KWMA_Book.jpg

Having the ability to “see” the landscape by relating the contour patterns to the shape of the ground (and vice versa) is an essential part of successful navigation in mountain and moorland environments.

On this hill based one day course, I explain the concept of vertical scale, and show you a range of simple techniques that enable you to visualise the shape of the ground from the map, and to gauge where the contours run on the ground when looking at the landscape.

Many of the techniques used assume a comfortable working knowledge of map interpretation, so I recommend that you should either have attended my Map Interpretation course, or that you have a reasonable grasp of map interpretation before attending this course.
