Orientation and Navigation: Location detect with sideways cut


Cut-sideways, it is necessary that we have a known point, for example, etc. In order to determine a path, road, contour the location we look like in cross-bearing / reverse cutSearch a prominent point left or right by us and this transfer as a cross bearing on the map. Now it is the point of the compass to aim. To do this we set our compass with Peilschlitz and visor wire as with iron sights, the Striking point and make sure that we keep it level as possible! Through the lens we could by pointing by reading the degree number on the compass rose below the Peilrichtungsstrich , If this is done we remember the degree number we’ve taken and turn to the map. We place our north bounded map best to the ground (preferably horizontal) and look for the newly targeted point. Now we place the compass on the map is important that we set the compass in the same direction on the card as he was also aligned with the aim for! The end of our scale table (ruler) we apply to the targeted point and turn the compass until the bearing line back to the read grade-number indicates if this is the case we draw a line on the scale table along. ( this drawn line is then a “base line”) our already known point overlaps with the base line (solid line) and thus marked at the intersection of our location.
