  • Navigating to coordinates on the map 

Use the military protractor to navigate to specific coordinates on the map.

Align the base line with the vertical line on the map. Zero must align with the northern grid line. All vertical and horizontal lines must be aligned with those on the map. Place the centre of the protractor over the location on the map and use the perpendicular to draw a line from the location to the target coordinate.
