Hemispheres Hemispheres Latitude Latitude Longitude Longitude Global Grid Global Grid Assignment Assignment
Hemisphere – any one of four overlapping halves of Earth Four Hemispheres 1. Northern Hemisphere 2. Southern Hemisphere 3. Eastern Hemisphere 4. Western Hemisphere
The Northern and Southern Hemisphere are created by an imaginary east-west line known as the equator.
The Eastern and Western Hemisphere are created by an imaginary north-south line known as the prime meridian.
Latitude – imaginary parallel lines that run around Earth in an east-west direction; one of these lines is known as the Equator. Parallel – another name for a line of latitude
Longitude – imaginary lines that run in a north-south direction from one pole to another; one of these lines is known as the Prime Meridian Meridian – another name for a line of longitude
Global Grid – a pattern of crossed lines formed by lines of latitude and lines of longitude.
On Page R16 of your Social Studies book, find the geographic address of the following places: 1. Oslo, Norway 2. Krakow, Poland 3. Kiev, Ukraine
On Page R10 of your Social Studies book, find the geographic address of the following places: 1. St. Petersburg, Russia 2. Bursa, Turkey 3. Hangzhou, China
Latitude and Longitude. Latitude and Longitude is one way of expressing absolute location. Houston, TX - They are imaginary lines that circle the globe.
MAP READING Latitude and Longitude. LATITUDE Imaginary lines running East/West Measure North/South of the Equator (0 o ) Splits Earth into Northern/Southern.
Latitude and Longitude HEMISPHERES. Earth’s Hemispheres The Earth can be divided into four parts or hemispheres: 1)Northern 2)Southern 3)Eastern 4)Western.
Lines of Latitude & Longitude. Equator: imaginary lines that circles the Earth, and divides it into the Northern and Southern hemispheres Prime Meridian:
Using Latitude and Longitude. Relative location: describing the location of a place in relation to another place. Absolute location: exact location.
Map and Globe Terms. Grid Definition – A pattern of lines that circles the globe in east-west and north-south directions. Definition – A pattern of lines.
A. Globe - A scale model of the Earth. 1. Globe vocabulary.
Finding locations on the Earth. Latitude (parallels) imaginary lines drawn around the earth parallel to the equator definition – the distance north or.

Latitude and Longitude The location of any place on Earth can be described using latitude and longitude lines.
Distance measure in degrees- from 0 o to 90 o North or South of the equator Equator- primary reference point Lines are called parallels- form complete.
Latitude & Longitude. Latitude Earth’s imaginary lines that run east and west but MEASURE north and south. Lines of latitude are also called parallels.

VOCAB #1 PGS GEOGRAPHY The study of the physical features of the Earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected.
Latitude and Longitude. Latitude is measured from the equator, with positive values going north and negative values going south. Longitude is measured.
MAPS ► What ism a map? ► Maps are a visual representation of the Earth’s surface, drawn to scale and made for a specific purpose.

Latitude and Longitude. Latitude The North Pole is at 90° North The South Pole is at 90° South The equator is at 0° latitude. It is neither north nor.
A place can be either in the NORTHERN or SOUTHERN hemisphere. That means it is in one of the halves above or below the imaginary east-west line known.
