Relative location

Relative Location

  • One location in relation to (or compared) to another location.

  • More easily determined by using compass references.

  • Relative location can change depending on what a location is in relation or compared to.

  • Example:

    • Badger is WEST of Gander.

    • Badger is EAST of Springdale.

    • St. John’s is 424 Km EAST of Grand Falls-Windsor

    • Yukon is NORTH of British Columbia


Lines of latitude

Lines of Latitude

  • Also called “Parallels”

  • Parallel, horizontal lines on globe.

  • Determine location/position North or South (of the equator).

  • Go from Equator (0o lat.) to North Pole (90o North Latitude) and South Pole (90o South Latitude)

  • Increase by increments of 10o

  • Equator is the MOST prominent.

  • Equator divides world into Northern and Southern Hemispheres.


Lines of longitude

Lines of Longitude

  • Also called “Meridians”

  • Vertical lines that go from Pole to Pole on globe.

  • Determine location/position East or West (of the Prime Meridian).

  • Prime Meridian is 0o at Greenwich, England.

  • Meridians go from 0o to 180o West and 0o to 180o East.

  • The Prime Meridian divides world into Eastern and Western Hemispheres.
