Tom Harrison, Instructor

This class will look at the different types of maps that cover the Point Reyes Seashore and discuss how to read and understand them. Tom will talk about mapping trails and demonstrate the tools that are used for field mapping. He will show how maps are made on a computer with demonstrations and lecture. We will briefly discuss modern GPS gadgets that are available both as stand-alone units and using GPS and maps on today's smart phones. Participants are encouraged to bring an example of a map they really love - or really hate - and we will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of maps. After the classroom presentation we will take a short stroll to Divide Meadow to practice map reading skills and answer any other questions. Open to youth (10-17) with attending adult.
