REVIEW


Scale

  • A ratio between actual distance on the ground and length

    on the map

  • 1/10,000 = 1 inch on the map/10,000 inches on the earth

  • Large-scale=more detail, cities

    • 1 inch/5miles

Small-scale=less detail, regions, continents

1 inch/150 miles


Maps

  • Mercator Projection

    • 1569, used for navigation to plot straight lines based on compass directions


Maps

  • Robinson Projection

    • Shows better shape, but lacks directional utility


Maps

  • Goode’s interrupted projection

    • Minimizes specific distortions, but distance and direction distorted


Maps

  • Cylindrical

    Planar

  • Conic


Maps

  • Contour Lines – Isolines connect points of equal or constant value (temperature, elevation, culture regions)
