Headquarters Department of the Army Washington, DC . MAP READING AND LAND NAVIGATION Preface The purpose of this field manual is to provide a standardized source document for Armywide reference on map reading and land navigation. This manual applies to every soldier in the Army regardless of service branch, MOS, or rank. This manual also contains both doctrine and training guidance on these subjects. Part One addresses map reading and Part Two, land navigation. The appendixes include a list of exportable training materials, a matrix of land navigation tasks, an introduction to orienteering, and a discussion of several devices that can assist the soldier in land navigation. The proponent of this publication is the US Army Infantry School. PART ONE MAP READING CHAPTER 1 TRAINING STRATEGY This manual is in response to an Armywide need for a new map reading and land navigation training strategy based on updated doctrine. This chapter describes and illustrates this approach to teaching these skills. 1-1. BUILDING-BLOCK APPROACH Institution courses are designed to prepare the soldier for a more advanced duty position in his unit. The critical soldiering skills of move, shoot, and communicate must be trained, practiced, and sustained at every level in the schools as well as in the unit. The map reading and land navigation skills taught at each level are critical to the soldiering skills of the duty position for which he is being school-trained. Therefore, they are also a prerequisite for a critical skill at a more advanced level. a. A soldier completing initial-entry training must be prepared to become a team member. He must be proficient in the basic map reading and dead reckoning skills. b. After completing the Primary Leadership Development Course (PLDC), a soldier should be ready to be a team leader. This duty position requires expertise in the skills of map reading, dead reckoning, and terrain association. c. A soldier completing the Basic NCO Course (BNCOC) has been trained for the squad leader position. Map reading and land navigation at skill level 3 requires development of problem-solving skills; for example, route selection and squad tactical movement. d. At skill level 4, the soldier completing the Advanced NCO Course (ANCOC) is prepared to assume the duty position of platoon sergeant CHAPTER 2 MAPS .
