Common Skills in Map Reading; Programed Text.
Army Engineer School, Fort Belvoir, VA.
The self-teaching text in map reading covers those skills needed by readers of military maps and map substitutes. It provides a foundation for personnel whose training program will require specialized or more advanced skills. Practical experience in the field with map and compass should supplement the text. The six parts of the text are meant to be studied sequentially. The six divisions are: symbols and marginal information, location, distance, direction, relief, and map supplements and substitutes. The text consists of frames (presenting a single teaching point which usually requires an answer to a specific problem) and panels (illustrations or other information needed to solve the problems in the frames).
