Rick will offer one course: GAIA GPS: Best Uses
We will create several compelling map and navigation displays that are quickly attainable and actionable. We will look at ‘Map Layers’ as they come in both static and dynamic versions, and provide specific usable information for specialized activities. Such as SAR, through hiking, coastal ocean navigation, weather forecasting, using private and public lands, NatGeo maps, snow machine trails and deep woods 4WD routes. Specific benefits of the “GAIA Topo” layer will be discussed. The presenter has no affiliation of any kind with GAIA GPS or the Outside Company.
