Finding your way in the world. Latitude lines are imaginary lines that run EAST/WEST (horizontally) around the earth's surface. Think of latitude like.
Latitude and Longitude Notes. Lines of Latitude Measure distances North and South from the Equator (the higher the latitude, the further from the equator)
LONGITUDE AND LATITUDE. LATITUDE MEANING; Latitude is an angular distance of a point on the earths surface measured in degrees from the center of the.
Measuring Latitude and Longitude. Parallels of Latitude Imaginary lines that remain at an equal distance from each other Labeled in degrees North or South.
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.

Map Vocabulary. Map Projection- the way to show the Earth’s curved surface on a flat map. All maps distort the Earth and each one does it in a different.
Geography Skill Handbook Finding Location. Methods of Surveying: GPS- Global positioning Satellite- a series of satellites that can determine absolute.
Lines of latitude Lines of latitude are imaginary lines drawn around the earth from east to west. These lines are called parallels of latitude because.
Locating on the Earth There are two basic ways to locate something on the Earth’s surface, relative location and Absolute locations.
Where in the World Are We?. How can you find your location? Absolute location: exact spot on the planet where something resides Latitude and longitude.

MERIDIANS AND PARALLELS A series of imaginary vertical and horizontal lines enables us to identify the exact location of places on Earth.
Latitude & Longitude. ► Latitude Lines Run parallel to the equator (also called Parallels) (Think of the rungs of a ladder; latitude=ladder) ► Longitude.

CHAPTER ONE FINDING YOUR WAY. WHAT ARE LINES OF LATITUDE?
Latitude and Longitude If the Earth were flat, we could treat a map like a graph and use co-ordinates to find and mark places But its not, the Earth.
Scientific models in the form of maps can be useful for finding locations & showing land formations on the Earth’s surface.
