Beyond their usefulness, I have always found an aesthetic value in topographic, marine and celestial maps. In addition to this, my career in industry led me to work with satellite navigation systems (GPS and Galileo). The objective of this training day is to become familiar with the use of paper hiking maps and GPS. It is especially important to gain in safety and thus in tranquillity for your hikes
