Choosing & Using a Map – Part 2

Now that you know how to choose a map, let’s learn how to use it! Darren Edwards of Trail Hiking Australia knows a thing or two about maps, and is here to share his knowledge. With some basic knowledge and a good ol’ compass, you’ll be steering the way in no time.

Choosing & Using a Map – Part 1

I often meet other hikers on the trail who seem confused about their location or direction of travel. Most are not carrying a map and simply expect that their will be an obvious trail or markers to define the way. Other people I meet have a map but simply cannot read it.

Knowing how to read a map isn’t difficult, for most people, given training, a bit of practise and continual use. The symbols, topography lines and direction helpers all might require a little understanding, but the answers are all right there! We’ll show you how to find the key to finding your way!

Digital Earth in a Transformed Society

What is a Digital Earth? According to the International Journal of Digital Earth, the term refers to “…a virtual representation of the planet, encompassing all its systems and forms, both natural environment and human societies, manifested as a multi-dimensional, multi-scale, multi-temporal, and multi-layer information facility.
“I believe we need a ‘Digital Earth’. A multi-resolution, three-dimensional representation of the planet, into which we can embed vast quantities of geo-referenced data” —Al Gore, 1998 (speech)
