Help People Navigate Your Land Better

The maps we make for events, going back years, have attracted much praise, attention, and jealousy. Now, you can learn how to make clear, customized, military-style, land-nav friendly maps of any area you wish.

In fact, this is all hands on, so you will make a map of your actual area of operations. So, be sure to read all the requirements and make proper plans to bring the data, and equipment required.

Remote Option Now Available

Don't want to drive over to see us? We'll also be running this over Skype, so you can get much the same instruction and individualized help from the comfort of your home.

You Must Bring

If you do not meet all these requirements you can still attend, but will not get as much out of the class:

There are no uniform requirements. This is entirely a classroom exercise, so otherwise plan accordingly to bring your equipment and be comfortable the entire time.

CWG Will Provide


CWG will provide lunch both days, but snacks and additional drinks are up to you. Bring a water bottle or other materials as you see fit.

Please keep food to yourself, and only use lidded containers to drink out of to avoid spilling on your, or others' computers, notebooks, and other paperwork.

While there are no formal plans for a group dinner on Saturday night, it is likely some of us will have spare time, so plan for and ask about that before class breaks up.


Shawnee is a suburb of Kansas City, and the training site is within a few minutes of an Interstate. If not from the metro area, there are numerous hotels nearby.

Due to the relatively small expected class size, we do not have special arrangements with any hotels in the area.
