Advanced GPS/Map Class:
Learn how to find GPS coordinates on your GPS, and other devices and then transfer them to an actual map to pinpoint your location. Learn how to be able to give your exact GPS location when hiking, hunting, or in a emergency situation to expedite help to your exact location, even without a GPS. You may not ever need these skills, but if you are lost, injured or need emergency assistance this information could prove crucial, in saving your life or someone else's life!
Learn how to use GPS Latitude & Longitude coordinates on a (USGS) United States Geological Survey map and on a Delorme Gazetteer to pin point your location using the Lat & Lon coordinate system.

2- We will find Lat & Lon coordinates on different electronic devices, phone aps, as well as actual maps in class.
