Compass Rose A compass rose is a design on a map that shows directions. It shows north, south, east, west, northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest.
Longitude The lines running vertically around the Earth are called longitude. These lines are called meridians, and measure how far east or west an object is.
Latitude Latitude is the angular distance of any object from the equator measured in degrees.
Latitude and Longitude The earth is divided into lots of lines called latitude and longitude.
Lines Longitude lines run north and south. Latitude lines run east and west. The lines measure distances in degrees. Latitude Longitude
Exit Ticket 1)Why is the compass rose important? 2) What do you find in the legend? 3) How do you use the scale on a map?
