Abstract

These useful see-through map cards are great for reading bearings, distances and grid references on 1:100 000 and 1:250 000 scale maps. The roamer can be purchased as part of the Map Reading Guide from the Client Services. A roamer can be used for determining the last Easting and last Northing figures for a six-figure grid reference: <ol> <li>Place the top right hand corner intersection of the roamer lines over the point of interest. </li> <li>Read the numbers from this point to the left to give the final Easting figure, and down to give the final Northing figure. </li> <li>The number required is the last number read, before the grid line on the map crosses the roamer. </li> </ol>
