Resources for Instructors
I have been teaching wilderness navigation and GPS use for more than a decade. Here are some of the exercises and presentation materials that you may find useful when you teach. You are welcome to modify these material to suite the need of your class and your teaching style. I have put a huge amount of effort in these resources over the years, thus I ask the following.
- Please don't redistribute for profit.
- Please share your improvements with me.
- Please don't ask me to make changes for you.
- Please point your students to my web site, www.MapTools.com, for their coordinate plotting needs.
