Be ready to provide air rescue crews with critical latitude and longitude information!
Most backcountry travelers use the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) system for planning and navigation; helicopter and air rescue crews use the lat/long system. Our Emergency Lat/Long Ruler was designed by mountain guides and cartographers to help you translate critical location coordinates when it matters most--in an emergency. Paper light and thin, it disappears easily inside a Brooks-Range Field Organizer until you need it.
Rulers included for scales commonly used for topo maps in Europe, North America, and the Pacific Rim.
