Term
 0 degree line of longtitude is called
Definition
 Prime Merdian
Term
 The Internation Date Line is found at
Definition
 180 degrees east or west
Term

Definition
 1.) military 2.) weather 3.) agriculture and gov agriculture 4.) forestry. gov. foestry, environmentalists 5.)geology, geograaphy, population change 6.) disaster relief, aid agency 7.) city planning urban planning
Term
 [image] What is the longitude and latitude of Montreal?
Definition
 46 degrees N 73 degrees W
Term
 [image] What is the Latitude and logitude for London, England?
Definition
 52 degrees N     0 degrees W
Term
 [image] What is the latitude and longitude for Tokyo?
Definition
 36 degrees N      140 degrees E
Term
 [image] scale is  1:50,000 WHAT IS THE SACLE IN CM TO KM? SHOW ALL YOUR CALCULATIONS.
Definition
 every cm measured on the map would be 50,000 actual cm on the ground. in a Km are 100,000 cm. thus multiple the meaurement in cm on the map by 50,000 and then divide the answer by 100,000 to = Km
Term
 [image] number 1 is a bridge. It measures 1.4 cm from shoreline to shoreline. How long is that in kilometers?
Definition
 1.4 times 50,000 = 70,000 divided by 100,000 = 0.7 km
Term
 [image] The map measures 17 cm by 17 cm Calculate its area in sq km show all your calculations
Definition
 17 cm by 50,000 = 850,000 divided by 100,000 = 8.5 km 8.5 times 8.5 = 72.25 sq km. However two rivers rum through it. If one emagines dividing the whole mape into 16 smaller squares (4 by 4). Each of those squares would be 4.25 cm times 50,000 =212,500 divided by 100,000 = 2.125 km times itself would = 4.516 sq km in each smaller square. The river would subtract 1 and 2/3s or 4.516 *1.666 = 7.524 sq km. Thus the total sq km of land would be 72.25-7.524 = 64.726 sq km
Term
 [image] What percentage is forested?
Definition
 Using the same 16 sq grid division of the map (4 by 4) and having worked out the land area itself was  64.726 sq km subtracting the red street areas city and the white area leaves about 7 and 3/4 of the 1/16 size squares green for forest. Having calculated earlier each of those square = 2.125 sg km time 7.75 of them = 16.468 forested dived by 64.726 total land = about 25.4% forested
Term
 [image] What tells you which areas are forested?
Definition
 those areas are coloured green.
Term
 [image] Where is the most cleared land on the map?
Definition
 Along the river
Term
 [image] Why is the land cleared where it is?
Definition
 The built up areas the human habitation occured first along the river usinging it for transportation and also it is the least drastically sloped.

Definition
 287277
Term
 [image] Why is the sheet of paper layed along the line "A" to "B" and marked where the topographical lines cross ?
Definition
 To used that paper to create a profile of that line A - B  Transfering the topographical contour line heights to the profile drawing.
Term
 What advatages does a map have?
Definition
 1.)symbolizes  so it can be clearer what one is seeing 2.) used in daily life for hicking andmotoring 3.) clearly labels landmarks, city, roadway names 4.))portrays earth on an easily portable flat surface  5.) can show true distance, directtion, beaaring, and or shape. Just not all of them at the same time. 6.) Can show logitutde and latitude 7.) Can have a grid reference to easily find landmarks, features, roads etc.
Term
 To convert cm to km you would?
Definition
 100cm = 1 meter.1 km = 1,000 meters1 km = 100,000 cm.   100 cm in a meter * 1,000 meters in a km = 100,000cm in a km
