WHAT TO BRING TO BASE CAMP

  • If you have a smart phone, download Avenza Maps.

    Upload this map into the application: Avenza Maps is an application that uses satellite technology to geo-reference photos you take, so you don’t need cell reception to utilize this app. You can download project maps that are proposed by agencies and GPS reference yourself, photos and notes on that map through the Avenza Map application.
