Orientation technique


When estimating the strike of a land form; be it coast line, river bank , road, railway line, a ridge or valley; this method allows one to quickly sketch, on paper or on the ground, a map of his surrounds, thus making it easier to find his location on a proper map, or to make his own map.  At whatever angle the distant object is to the vertical, so it is to the azimuth of that vertical.The Scene S36.9407,E149.913399

Hi Moonman, I am interested in your posting, unfortunately the image when you open it is very small and difficult to read, you might want to load images using this method
Hope this is helpful ;)

I have added more detail & reworded some of it.

Thx Moonman :)
