GPS Training Review
Thank you to John Rafferty and Anna Horta from Charles Stuart University for their presentation on the 12th of June. Those attending learnt about the history of GPS and how it works globally and for Australia. We then picked up some good pointers on marking, recording and locating a point and how this is useful in the field. We hope to invite Anna and John to attend one of our Bushfire recovery field days to further discuss and demonstrate the applications of GPS in the field.
