How to Navigate with a Compass
Watch more Camping Equipment & Tips videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/308371-How-to-Navigate-with-a-Compass Know how to use a compass and you'll never get lost in the wild. Follow these simple steps and you'll learn this valuable skill. Step 1: Learn the parts Learn the basic parts of a compass, including the floating needle with a red tip, and the housing – the movable round piece containing the needle. The housing is labeled with direction and degree marks. The direction-of-travel arrow is marked on the base. Tip A baseplate compass, which includes a direction-of-travel arrow, is best for beginners. Step 2: Hold it correctly Hold the compass in your palm, close to your body at waist level, so you can look straight down at it and hold it level. This allows the floating needle to move freely. Step 3: Turn around Look at the floating needle, which always points north. Turn slowly around in a circle, holding the compass in front of you, and notice that the needle keeps pointing in the same direction. Step 4: Choose a direction to travel Rotate the housing until your desired direction aligns with the direction of travel arrow on the baseplate. To travel southeast, for example, set the arrow between the S and the E. Step 5: Adjust for magnetic declination Rotate the housing slightly to compensate for declination. A compass points to magnetic north, which differs from true north by several degrees depending on your location. Tip Check your map for the declination in your area, or look it up online. Step 6: Walk that way Hold the compass in front of you and turn until the floating arrow tip lines up with the N on the housing. Step 7: Navigate with a map Find your starting point and destination on the map. Align the baseplate with these two points and rotate the compass housing to align its N and S markings with north and south on the map. Step 8: Find north and go Adjust for declination, and then hold the compass in front of you, turning until the floating arrow lines up with the N on the housing. Walk, following the direction of travel arrow. Did You Know? The earth's magnetic field reverses every an average of once every 250,000 years, but the last time this occurred was nearly 800,000 years ago.

The Bagnold sun compass
Moved to BitCHute... https://www.bitchute.com/profile/ETYQ03hagtq3/ Annotations on! A method of navigating by the sun developed by Maj. (later Brigadier) Sir R.A. Bagnold in the 1920s. The most accurate way of using this device is to calculate the azimuth of the sun for the approximate latitude and longitude where you will be operating. This gives you a true course heading in that case. Since most people won't have navigation tables in an emergency, I demonstrate another method using the magnetic azimuth of the sun, this produces a magnetic bearing. The equation of time was about -11 minutes on the day I did my montage and didn't appear to affect the result measurably. The Sun's "motion" averages 15 degrees an hour but HOUR TO HOUR can vary SIGNIFICANTLY!. The blue model compass I used here has an extra plate (or disc) for the sun's azimuth. Since I thought it would be confusing I eliminated it as a separate part from the discussion - However for informational purposes - the degree graduations on the disc starts at Zero degrees in the same place the shadow disc reads zero or 360 (the two discs appear to be a single piece on the original device) the graduations proceed sequentially around BOTH sides of the plate stopping at 180 degrees. Bagnold mentioned that the apparent motion of the sun describes a near perfect arc though out the day. At local noon, the sun's azimuth is 180 degrees and in the exact middle of that arc. If you know where the sun's azimuth was on one side of that arc at a given amount of time before local noon, it will be in the same spot but on the opposite side of the arc the same amount of time after local noon - See why I left that bit out of the video. I suspect there are other functions for that disc that are not well known and in any case they don't appear germane to our purposes here. From my tests, I believe the compass can function accurately without using it. Of course a video cannot be comprehensive concerning a technical subject such as this. If you are interested in the sun compass functions or using it for navigation I urge you to further explore its uses and employment. A navigation device called a pelorus has been used at sea for generations. It is very similar to a sun compass and seems likely to have been an influence in its development.

Find North using a Wrist-watch and the Sun - Navigation without a Compass
Something I missed out: At 12oclock the hour hand is on 12, so there's no angle to bisect, well the sun at 12oclock is /usually directly south, so the 12 oclock mark itself is your north/south line. Although you could also just wait half an hour and you'll have an angle to bi-sect. Such an important skill, make sure you have this skill under your belt. 2eZ If you carry a functioning analog wrist watch, then you can use it to find your north & south line. A little known trick, but very handy. Hold your watch flat and point the hour hand towards the sun. Bisect the angle between the hour hand and the twelve o'clock mark to get the north-south line. North will be the direction furthest from the sun. You can also use a digital wrist watch, but you have to create imaginary clock hands. Alternatively, you can arrange sticks in a way that will mimic the face of an analog watch. Position the sticks to represent the current time. Note: This method only works in the Northern Hemisphere. If you are in the Southern hemisphere, then point the twelve o'clock mark towards the sun. The mid point between twelve o'clock mark and the hour hand will be your north south line. North will be the direction FURTHEST away from the sun. ------------------------------------ Outdoor skills for wilderness survival, bushcraft, hiking and camping.

Find North using the Stars - Ursa Major/Polaris - Navigation without a Compass
On a clear night in the northern hemisphere, you can find north with a little bit of stellar constellation knowledge. If you can find the Big Dipper (Ursa Major) then it is simple to find the North Star (Polaris). If you follow the imaginary line from the tip of the 'cup' of the Big Dipper, you will find The North Star. Ursa Major will move and rotate across our sky throughout the year. You may look up one day and struggle to locate it because it'll be upside down, so just be aware of that. And during the months of June through to October, Ursa Major lies very low on the horizon, so if you're standing at the base of a mountain or cliff face, your view of the constellation may be totally obscured. Likewise, if you're standing at the foot of a hill or in front bunch of trees, you'll encounter the same problem. So try to get to vast, empty, open ground if possible. ------------------------------------ Outdoor skills for wilderness survival, bushcraft, hiking and camping.

Underwater Navigation How To Use A SCUBA Compass
Before we get started, don't forget to download our free guide "The 8 Tools You Should Never Dive Without." http://greatdivers.com/yt/usecompass For more information about cleaning your masks visit our blog post on the subject: https://greatdivers.com/underwater-navigation-how-to-use-a-scuba-compass/ The most commonly used SCUBA navigation device is the compass. All divers have one and should carry it with them whenever they descend into the abyss. We all know that there is no such thing as an underwater GPS for Divers! Unfortunately, many of us, including myself when I first started, do not really know how to correctly use the compass to navigate underwater. The parts of the compass: The Card: This is the part of the compass that has the degrees and the letters that determine direction The Bessel: This a rotating piece of plastic on the outside of the compass which can be rotated to help us read our heading The Lubber Line: This line is fixed on the compass' face and is used to help us read our heading. The Side Window: This is a window on the side of the compass that makes it easier for us to see our heading. **Note that a digital compass does not have all these parts** How to Use a Compass for Underwater Navigation The first thing we need to go over is how to hold your compass when underwater. This is important because different compasses are mounted in different ways. Not knowing how to hold a compass can cause you to get an incorrect heading Taking a heading A heading is the number attached to the direction you are traveling in. It will always fall between 0 and 360 and is commonly known as degrees. The Reciprocal course This is a very common question. Because we take headings in a circle from 0 to 360 degrees, it is possible to calculate your reciprocal, or opposite heading. To do this we use something called the add subtract 180 rule. It requires a little math, but it is not difficult. How to use your compass to assist in natural navigation. It is a great idea to use your compass in conjunction with natural navigation. This is a very good way of avoiding tunnel vision, something that occurs when you are laser focused on your compass and you do not notice what is happening around you. I have seen it happen more than once that a student will focus so singularly on their compass that they will swim right passed the ascent line without even noticing it. What if there is a cross current? There are times when you will be swimming with a current coming across your body rather than in front or behind you. The idea here is to slightly deviate your swimming by slightly directing yourself into the current to compensate. Of course, this is not an exact science, but it will allow you to compensate for the current and get you closer to your destination. I hope this has helped you understand the ins and outs of using a compass as a SCUBA navigation device. If you want to learn more all aspects of underwater navigation, you may be interested in b our course "SCUBA navigation mastered." It provides a comprehensive course on all aspects of navigation.
