Map Group Presentation
Mapping at Cravens Peak
Presenter: Stuart Watt, Map Group and RGSQ member
My geology mapping training at University of Queensland in the early 70’s was all compass and pacing (if high accuracy wasn’t needed) or compass and tape (if it was) or plane tabling, but when it came to mapping the geology of the wide-open spaces of Cravens Peak, different techniques were required and I had to take the electronic step up to GPS. A learning curve, indeed. This is the story of my bit of Cravens Peak and how participation in this scientific expedition led me eventually to the detailed orienteering mapping I now do.
