Is a drawing that shows as though you were looking at it from the side
A key that lists all the symbols used on the maps
The relationship between a distance on the map and the actual distance on the ground.
The distance in degrees east or west of the prime meridian
The distance in degrees north or south of the equator
The area on Earth's surface between two meridians where people use the same time
International Date Line
The line of longitude 180° east or west of the prime meridian
Shows the detailed shapes of Earth's surface, along with its natural and human-made features
The height above sea level of any point on Earth's surface
The difference in elevation between the highest and lowest point in an area
Lines on a topographic map that connect points of equal elevation
The elevation difference between contours that are next to each other
A measure of the steepness of the land
Show the surface geology of the mapped area
A profile view that shows a vertical slice through rocks below the surface
The process of collecting information about an area without coming into physical contact with it
Which group of terms describes lines on a map?
Latitude, meridians, International date line
If you traveled west from one time zone to another, what would it be?
Which model of Earth does not distort surface features?
What do the white lines represent?
A diagram that represents a slice of Earth is called
Which is the highest location on the topographic map shown above?
What information on a topographic map would be helpful if you were making a geologic cross section?
What is the minimum number of satellites needed to find your exact location using GPS?
Which of these legend items would you use to measure the distance between two cities on a map?
Compare GIS to GPS
GPS is used by map makers to accurately locate reference points where as GIS is used to analyze and organize data to create digital maps
Construct: a map of an imaginary city. Include a scale
Look at interactive notebook
Distinguish: between political maps and geologic maps
Political maps show the boundaries between countries state, counties, or townships. The boundaries can be shown as a variety of solid or dashed lines. Geologic maps show the surface geology of the mapped area.
Suggest: a reason that the contour interval used on a map of a mountain might be different from the contour interval used on a map of a plain.
Plains have less contour lines than contour lines on mountains
Evaluate: the benefit of creating a topographic profile
When you create a topographic profile map, you can see how the land is
Analyze: Which projection in the image below has less distortion?
The lines on the Winkel map are curved so it is less distorted
Justify: using remote sensing technology during a natural disaster
To help with an earthquake waves
Write: a paragraph that justifies the expense of making and placing satellites in orbit for observing Earth.
It helps make GPSs more accurate so we can get to our destinations safe and correctly. It helps the military to locate the enemy, air traffic controllers,etc.
