13 EQ: How are latitude and longitude used to find places?
14 Latitude Latitude lines cut the Earth in Sections from East to West Latitude lines are also known as parallels.
15 EquatorThe main latitude line is called the Equator. It cuts the Earth in half.The Top half is called the Northern HemisphereThe Bottom half is called the Southern Hemisphere
16 Measuring Latitude Latitude is Measured in Degrees (From 0 to 90) If the Line is above the Equator, it is measured in degrees North (ex: 20 Degrees North)If the line is Below the Equator, it is measured in degrees South (ex: 65 Degrees South)
18 LongitudeLongitude Lines cut the Earth in Sections from North to South (like slices of an orange)
19 Prime Meridian The main longitude line is called the Prime Meridian. The left half is called the Western HemisphereThe Right half is called the Eastern Hemisphere
20 Measuring Longitude Longitude is Measured in Degrees (From 0 to 180) If the Line is West of the Prime Meridian, it is measured in degrees West (ex: 70 Degrees West)If the Line is East of the Prime Meridian, it is measured in Degrees East (ex: 136 Degrees East)
22 Putting them TogetherIf you put latitude and longitude together, you can tell exactly where something is.Something’s Latitude and Longitude together is called its coordinate.Always put latitude first. (Ladies First)Then list LongitudeEx: 41 N, 75 WLook at your map: What city has these coordinates?
23 Using Latitude and Longitude, you can find any spot in the entire world!!!! Navigation systems use latitude and longitude to track where you are and tell you how to get somewhere.
24 ActivityUsing the maps in your book, what cities lie at these coordinates.38 N, 140 E22 S, 46 W53 N, 35 E37 N, 127 E41 N, 75 W
25 Let’s See How Good You Are Using your Worksheet, tell me the coordinates of the following cities:New York CityMexico CityBombayJakartaIstanbul
