Description

Discover the Boí Valley on a small scale thanks to the Boí Valley Orientation maps. We propose an immersion in the territory accompanied by specialist technicians with the incentive of going out to “hunt” landmarks around Barruera. It crosses the bed of the Noguera de Tort River and enters the landscape of the Boí Valley. Learn to observe signs that help you orient yourself, to know where north is and how to locate yourself on a map.

BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF THE COMPASS

Components: Familiarize yourself with the basic components of a compass: magnetic needle, base, bezel and scale.
Reading: Learn to read the direction indicated by the magnetic needle, making sure to keep the compass level for an accurate reading.

UNDERSTAND THE MAP

Scales: Understand the scale of the map to determine real distances on the ground.
Symbols: Become familiar with the symbols and legends on the map, which indicate features such as roads, rivers, mountains, and other geographic features.

ORIENT THE MAP

Landmarks: Identify landmarks on the ground and on the map, such as hills, lakes, or road junctions.
Compass Orientation: Use the compass to orient the map, aligning the north of the map with the north indicated by the compass.
