Scout skills: mapping

A map is a picture of a given area of what the ground looks like from directly above.

When undertaking a journey, we need to be able to find our way around competently, sometimes in unfamiliar territory.

This guide talks about road maps, town maps and Ordnance Survey maps, along with info on grid references and common map symbols.
