DO NOW9/8/15 Using the Textbooks (p. 2-6) located in your desks: Please define the following key terms in your notebooks: Projection Hemisphere Latitude Longitude Grid System Absolute Location Great Circle Route
GOODE’S INTERRUPTED PROJECTION -An equal-area projection. -The projection quite accurately presents the size and shape of the continents. -Distances- especially in the oceans- are less accurate.
LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE Latitude- Distances measured in degrees North and South of the Equator at 0 degrees latitude. -The Letters N or S following the degree symbol tells you if the location is north or south of the Equator. -The North and South poles are at 90 degrees North (N) and South (S) Latitude.
LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE Longitude is distance measured in degrees East (E) or West (W) of the Prime Meridian at 0 degrees longitude. Lines of latitude and longitude cross each other in the form of a grid system. -Knowing a place’s latitude and longitude allows you to locate it exactly on a map or globe. -You can name an absolute location by naming the latitude and longitude lines nearest to that location.
