Mappers Blog: Svartvikskogen Setup

Some differences to the Uaul Grond Setup...
1: Base Plate
I left my plexiglas for the air-light "kanalplast" which here in Sweden can be found at every crossing. Then I went down to the A5-format. All in all this got the weight down to 20gramm. I have a hard time now to remember the days I had problems with my left shoulder. :-)

2:Base Map
Well, we are in Sweden which in regard to the laser-data is about three steps in front of Switzerland (Step1: extremly low costs (f.ex. Haninge Municipality: 100CHF for 460km2), Step2: data in the .las format (all responses, no intransparent modifications), Step3: OL-Laser to make the best out of Step2). So now I work with a colored base map, combining the height of the vegetation layer with contour lines every 0.7m (maps equidistance=3.5m), regular mesh, magn.north lines etc.

3:Pencils
Inspired by Beni Deppeler i finally managed to paint my pencils with acrylic colors according to the leads color.

4:Compass
After having lost one compass and having nearly lost two more, this compass now is connected to the wristband with a shoestring.

5:GPS
Now I even carry a gps-logger with me, but only for documentation purposes (I-gotU GT120 USB).

Hi, what does it mean: "To paint my pencils with acrylic colors according to the leads color." - another layer with to paint my pencils with marker pen on top of lead layer?

Hi Aleš, I tried to describe the phenomena right below the number (3).
