Gathering March Speed increases your march speed when sending troops out to gather on resource tiles. This research ability speeds up your marches travel time to resource tiles by a fixed percentage.
Gathering march speed is probably more useful than the Treasure Map March Speed as it will be used more frequently. However, most Kingdoms have the rule that the first march claims the resource tile. Therefore, if you abide by this rule it will not help you gain access to more resource tiles.
It will speed up your gathering in general as it reduces travel time to tiles, this means you will pull in more resources per hour.
You need to research this ability to at least level 4 to progress down the march tree. This increases your march speed to resource tiles by 29% when maxed.
