Backpacker Mag offers Maps and GPS Webinar

Backpacker Magazine is offering a four-week online tutorial in April for those looking to become navigational experts.

Backpacker will use photos, videos, and map displays to show you how to plot a bearing, create a Google Earth flyover, save GPS waypoints, geotag photos, and much more. By the end of the course you'll be able to navigate confidently in trail-less terrain and profit from a whole new range of online mapping tools. For anyone who wants to explore off-trail wilderness or lead a group in the backcountry, this is an essential body of knowledge - and it's taught by real backpackers with decades of navigation experience.

The dates for the webinar are April 5, 12, 19 and 26, and the cost is $300. For more information, and to sign-up, please click here.
