FYA Basics: Map Basics

MAP BASICS

Heading out into the countryside can be a gentle and placid affair, or it can be full on and technically demanding... and it can be everything else in between. 

Whichever way floats your boat, having the skills to read a map will greatly improve the time you spend outdoors.  We want to show you the basics, so that you can begin to appreciate the art of reading a map following a route which you have planned yourself.  We get a real kick out of encouraging folk to get outdoors and start planning their own adventures, however small or insignificant they may seem! Here’s how it’s done - tap on the links to head to the MAP BASICS topic you want to read.
