The Appalachian Mountain Club has invited me to give a 90 minute talk and workshop on Adding Navigation and GPS Apps to Map and Compass for Backcountry Navigation at their Annual Summit Meeting on January 28, 2017 (9:30-10:55 AM) at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, MA (just outside Boston.) My workshop is one of 20 presentations and interactive workshops on skills, conservation and leadership that will be given at the conference, many by Appalachian Mountain Club volunteers like myself.
If you’re a map and compass curmudgeon, my workshop will give you a crash course in the use of Internet, GPS, and Smartphone Apps for use on-trail or off. I’ll discuss the digital mapping revolution and personal map publishing, in addition to demonstrating a variety of navigation and smartphone apps including Caltopo, Gaia, and NE Hiker.
