- Translate two dimensional maps into your adventure lifestyle
- Create your own maps
- And much more

"I signed up for the Navigation course with Uplift so that I would feel comfortable using a map and compass in the backcountry. I learned how to read topographic maps, navigate by compass, and how to check my work to confirm I'm on the right path. Heather is an extremely knowledgeable, patient, and fun teacher! I feel confident planning my multi-day hikes now!"
