Half day morning
Description: Need to find your way back to that petroglyph panel? Or your car? This workshop will cover how Global Positioning System devices think and operate. The majority of the workshop will be in the classroom with some time outside practicing what you learned. We’ll learn about device settings, how to record tracks and waypoints, and how to download and organize them. We’ll focus on Garmin devices and smartphone apps.
Things to Bring: GPS device or smartphone, a notebook for taking notes and, for the short field session portion, sun protection and walking shoes. Optional: Bring your GPS device, its USB cable, and a laptop if you want to practice downloading your gpx files.
Hiking: The field part of this workshop will include a walk in a local public park to test your skills.
