A Method of Traversing Roads
Abstract:Under the necessity of preparing usable working maps for forest protective nnits not covered by U.S. Geological Survey maps, the California State Division of Forestry has been making its own maps using available road network as the master control. The search for a rapid and reasonably accurate method of traversing roads led to adoption of the technique described, by which as much as 20 miles of unfamiliar winding road may be traversed in one day.
