Example text

At the worst, perhaps your compass is just not up to the job. When plotting, do not draw bearing lines all the way from the distant sighting point, but just long enough to intersect your supposed position; do not scribe the lines, just draw them lightly and when your point has been established, erase them. 7 Compass and hand-level intersections Where there is a lack of points from which compass bearings can be taken, the region hilly, and the map well-contoured, a hand level can be useful. Such devices are built into Brunton and Meridian geologist’s compasses, while the Abney level is specifically designed as an accurate hand-level.

You may even have to make your own topographic base – if you know how. Any geologist, especially one who intends to enter the mineral industry or engineering geology, is well advised to learn at least the rudiments of map making.
