Map and Compass Basics

Outdoor Quest //Blake Miller image
Looking for a good overview of map and compass basic  procedures. Take a look at United States Search and Rescue Task Force's post on map and compass basics.  The following is a excerpt from this site:

"A topographic map tells you where things are and how to get to them, whether you're hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, or just interested in the world around you. These maps describe the shape of the land. They define and locate natural and man made features like woodlands, waterways, important buildings, and bridges. They show the distance between any two places, and they also show the direction from one point to another."
