This entry-level one-evening workshop is an introduction to GPS Navigation, Trip Planning, and Navigation Workflow. This workshop focusses on using GPS in Trip Planning and in Navigation Workflow. The workshop consists of two parts:

1. An online presentation with exercises that is viewed and completed at home (approx 4-5 hours to complete) 2 weeks prior to the In-Person Workshop.

2. An in-person workshop that will focus on planning a short trip, uploading this data to your device, and then using the data to navigate around the Program Center (approx 2.5 hours).

The applications used in this class are Gaia GPS  on your cell phone (for both Android and IOS devices), and Caltopo for the online trip planning segment.

The online content will be sent to the student 2 weeks prior to the start of the in-person workshop that you signed up for.  The online segment MUST be completed prior to attending the workshop. Once both parts are completed, you will earn a GPS navigation badge.
