China using a PowerPoint presentation. Starting
with 7,000 photographs and a cursory
knowledge of PowerPoint, Vreni took the

Ed Hicks creates orienteering maps professionally. He will share the output of his extensive knowledge and skills as he depicts
some local areas with maps. Ed presented
his skill to the group previously and, since
then, has acquired some more tricks and

through the camera or manually, can
allow the online communities to be placed
onto a map to view the photo location.
