Is there a Facility Upgrade Tree?

Question

I'm in career mode and need to get to the point where I can learn to navigate and dock but I think my Kerbils don'r have the ability to 'lock' on a target.  I also would like them to be able to take soil samples from different biomes.  Is there a guide somewhere to tell me which facilities to upgrade to gain these skills? I see the Science tree just fine but the facility upgrade path is less clear.  Thanks.

This should tell you everything you need about the building upgrades.

However, that won't help your kerbal pilots lock onto their target, they'll need to level up for that.

From the Wiki:

Pilot

Level Effects provided G Tolerance
☆☆☆☆☆ SAS and Stability 1.15x
★☆☆☆☆ Lock towards prograde and retrograde 1.3x
★★☆☆☆ Lock towards normal and anti-normal, radial and anti-radial 1.45x
★★★☆☆ Lock towards target, away from target, and towards maneuver 1.6x
★★★★☆ None 1.85x
★★★★★ None 2x

"Upgrading the Astronaut Complex and Research and Development facility allow taking EVA Reports and Surface Samples."

The best you can do for figuring out the advantages of upgrading the facilities is to right click to open the Facility window (in KSC view), and then hover your mouse over the "upgrade" button. It will tell you what advantages you get -- or you can look in the wiki as Geonovast said. However, the wiki has an error when it comes to the Tracking Station. To get visible orbits, vessel targeting, and maneuver nodes, you need to upgrade the Tracking Station to level 2. And another error when it comes to R&D: you need to upgrade it to Level 3 to get Surface Samples.

So you don't need to upgrade the Mission Control as well?

Yes, Mission Control too, to Level 2. But the wiki has that part correct.
