Using Your GPS, Bonners Ferry, ID

Saturday, April 2 2011 at 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Location: UI Boundary Co. Extension Office, 6447 Kootenai Ave.

A Global Positioning System or “GPS” receiver is becoming as common to work and play in forests as a compass. Yet many who own a GPS receiver feel they are only using a small portion of its capabilities.

This one day program will introduce participants to the science underlying GPS, describe the wide range of tasks that can be accomplished with GPS and their accompanying technologies, such as mapping programs, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and internet data sources. In the last half of the program, participants will practice field exercises with a GPS (Garmin 76CSX receivers).
