I spent part of today on Braunton Burrows investigating whether a hand-held GPS can take the place of compass, clinometer ranging poles, tape measure and general fieldwork tedium.


I have concluded that the wonderful Magnalox does indeed offer a challenge to the traditional fieldwork method for dune transecting.

There is an option to view the dune transect on a Google Map or in Google Earth. The thumbail is a screenshot of the Magnalox web page.
