unknown location on the ground, given a
standard 1:50,000-scale military map of the
area, pencil, paper, a coordinate scale,
protractor, and a known point on the ground.

Determined the six-digit coordinate of your
location with a 100-meter tolerance within
seven minutes.

Performance Steps

Determine the type of terrain
feature upon which you are located.
(See task number 071-329-100, Identify

Point On A Military Map.)

Determine your location.

Relate the terrain features on
the ground to those shown on the map.

After you have determined where
the terrain features on the ground and
those on the map coincide, determine
the coordinates of your location using
the coordinate scale and protractor.


Select a field site that has terrain
features that are shown on the map. At the
test site, provide a field table, a
1:50,000-scale military map of the area,
pencil, paper, and a coordinate scale.

Soldier: Tell the soldier he or she must
determine a six-digit coordinate of his or
her location within 7 minutes. Tell the
soldier one of the cardinal directions
(north, south, east, or west).
