Being able to read a map and use a compass can be the difference between being lost and getting to your intended destination safely. In this video, Paul Howe introduces you to land navigation. He reviews maps and map development, components of a map, terrain features and contour lines, protractors, resection, declination, compasses, pace count, dead reckoning, cone of direction, route planning, field techniques, orienteering, and much more. Paul is a high-risk training instructor that served 20 years in the US Army, ten of those in Special Operations. He served as a Tactical Team Leader and Senior Instructor while assigned to Army Special Operations. During his tour in special operations he was involved in several combat actions. One of the most notable was the battle of Mogadishu that was later portrayed in the motion picture Black Hawk Down. Relying on your cell phone or dash mounted GPS is simply not enough.

    I teach land navigation for our county search and rescue team, Mr. Howe does a very good job with the subject. His examples are well thought out. I especially like some of his practical suggestions, many of which I had never seen before.

    This is a good overview of the land navigation topic. Its basically the SF Q course basic land nav course advice in a hour. If you want to get to where you want to go with just a map and compass, follow his advice.
    1.Use Attack points with short dead reckoning routes.
    2. Avoid WATER and DRAWS
    3. Use a cone of travel with a known offset(left or right with some linear backstop.
    protect yourself and eyes
    A good basic overview

    Too much focus on military maps. Not enough helpful civilian real life examples. He did not show how to calibrate your compass for declination. I recommend taking an REI Navigation course. It was superior to this.

    Never having any prior land navigation training myself, this was a great introduction to the subject, including use of different compasses & the aid of protractors.
