1-17. Conclusion. Figure 1-18, page 1-14, shows an example of a completed overlay. When
An overlay is a concise drawing of a route and its characteristics.
There are five required items to include on an overlay:
The route, drawn to scale, showing the limit of sector.
Two grid reference points.
A north-seeking arrow (grid or magnetic).
A title block.
A route classification formula (discussed further in Lesson 2).
An overlay is required for both a hasty and a deliberate reconnaissance.
Any limiting characteristics for military traffic will be recorded by using symbols.
All measurements recorded on the overlay will be expressed in metric terms.
