Adjustable Divider Points
Transfer and measure distances on your maps
Using a set of dividers is a time honored technique for measuring distance on a map. For straight line distances, set the dividers between the two points, then move the dividers down to the scale bar and read the distance. They really shine when you use them to measure a distance along a road or trail. Set the dividers to a known distance interval using the scale bar, say a tenth of a mile. Now walk the dividers along the trail, rotating them from point to point and counting the number of intervals you measured. At a divider span of 0.1 miles, 12 intervals would be 1.2 miles. See the third and forth product images for an example trail distance measurement.
These dividers are small, light weight at only 0.8 ounces, and inexpensive, making them ideal for your field navigation kit. No more searching for a dry edge of a piece of paper to transfer a distance.
The points on these dividers are just sharp enough to stay in place, not so sharp that they will poke holes in your map overlay or lamination.
