071-329-1019 (SL2) - Use a Map Overlay

Standards: Positioned overlay correctly on the map and identified all graphic symbols and information on the overlay.

Conditions: Given a military map and a company level map overlay.

Standards: Positioned overlay correctly on the map and identified all graphic symbols and information on the overlay.

Performance Steps

1.   Obtain the map sheet(s) listed in the marginal information.

2.   Locate the grid intersections on the map that corresponds to the grid register marks in opposite corners of the overlay.

3.   Place the overlay on the map so the grid register marks fall exactly on top of the grid intersections (figure 071-329-1019-1).

Evaluation Preparation:

Setup: Provide a military map and a company level map overlay. Ask the soldier to identify information on the overlay from the performance measures.

Brief Soldier: Tell the soldier he must be able to correctly place the overlay on the map and identify any graphic symbols or information on the overlay as requested.

Performance Measures

GO

NO GO

1.   Placed overlay grid register marks over grid intersections.

--

--

2.   Identified marginal information.

--

--

3.   Identified security classification.

--

--

4.   Identified graphic symbols.

--

--

Evaluation Guidance: Score the soldier GO if all performance measures are passed. Score the soldier NO GO if any performance measure is failed. If the soldier scores NO GO, show what was done wrong and how to do it correctly.
