AAUG and NPS at the Alaska Sportsmans Show


The Alaska ArcUser Group and National Park Service partnered up this year to provide three 45 minute GPS seminars at the annual Alaska Sportsmans Show.  Thanks to Chris Harrington, Chris F. and Lucas Gasek (Dowl HKM), Jean Tam, Robert Strobe and Regan Sarwas who all provided able assistance to the public.  The seminar began inside with a 10 minute overview of GPS, compass, and maps then was followed by marking various waypoints with government supplied Garmin Map76CSx personal navigation devices.  Participants also learned to combine map reading skills and magnetic compasses to find their way back home.  We hope to continue this collaboration for all future Sportsman show events.  See you next year!
