\$ Half way between the poles that divides the earth into northern and southern hemisphere \$ It represents 0º latitude

\$ Is the distance north or south measured in degrees from the equator \$ North pole is 90º north latitude \$ South pole is 90º south latitude

\$ Distance east or west measured in degrees from the prime meridian \$ Imaginary lines that pass through the poles

\$ Passes through Greenwich, England \$ Represents 0º longitude \$ Lines are not parallel \$ Touch at the poles are farthest apart at the equator

\$ A map projection that results when the content of the globe are transferred onto a cylinder \$ Shows the Earth longitude and latitude as straight, parallel lines \$ Lines of longitude are plotted with an equal amount of spaced between them

 A map projection that is made by a transferring the content of the globe onto a cone  Cone touches the globe at each line of longitude but only one line of latitude

 A map projection that is made by transferring the contents of the globe onto a plane  Touches the globe only at one point  Little distortion occurs at the point of contact, which is usually one of the poles

 Photos from air  Photographs are important in helping map makers to make accurate maps

 Gathering info. About something without actually being there  It can be as basic as cameras in planes or as sophisticated as satellites with sensor that can sense and record what our eyes cannot see
