Exploring With GPS: A Practical Field Guide for Satellite Navigation

Exploring With GPS presents a practical approach to using the Global Positioning System in the outdoors using mapping GPS receivers,
digital topographic maps, and satellite
imagery. The book uses realistic scenarios and plenty of screen shots and photos to show you how to find your way
in the backcountry quickly and easily. This book is for hunters, rescue teams, hikers, mountain bikers,
anglers, geocachers, backpackers, cross-country skiers, snowshoers, boaters, and everyone who uses recreational
GPS in the outdoors. Using GPS, anyone,
anywhere on Earth, can find their position within a few feet using an inexpensive hand-held GPS
receiver. That simple ability has completely revolutionized every field that uses positioning, navigation, and timing
information, including outdoor recreation. Not only can you find your way through the wilderness
with unerring precision regardless of weather, location, or time of day, you can work with computers and the World Wide Web
to plan your outdoor adventures from home. You can record our trip in the field, download it to a computer,
attach labels, graphics, elevation profiles, comments and photos, and then share it with friends or publish it
for all to see on the Internet. As a result there is a rapidly growing amount of free trip and backcountry
information on the Web. This book shows you how to tap into this remarkable capability to make your own outdoor
adventures safer and more enjoyable.
