  1. Hi Bill, have to agree with Montana NAR on the map shots, Question, is there anyway to place a compass rose or something like that in order to get an idea of direction for further study of the ground, etc? Thanks again, Bill

    1. Good question, Chris. As it was being recorded there was a dynamic compass rose in the upper-right corner, but somehow in the final formatting it was cropped out. Next time I’ll try something different.

      But, generally in this video we’re looking toward the east or northeast.
