Map description
by: Mohammed

The important thing in map is to locate your position on the starting, for example in the park or building or youth center description, they usually give you three or four gate on the map and you need to know exactly which one you should start with and they will guide you on the record starting.

There is now a lesson on the site to help with describing maps.
