Maps


Maps never show real sizes!
You need to understand the scale of it. The scale shows the relationship between map ditances and real distances.


Maps use symbols like stars or planes. Maps use different colors like blue for water.

Lines and Latitude:

Suppose you want to know the exact location of a place is on Earth. There are imaginary lines on Earth. Some of the lines run East and west. They are called lines and latitude. The equater is the starting point for measuring latitude.

Lines of Lonitude:

Unlike lines of latitude,meredians are not parallel to each other.

The Global Grid:

Mapmakers combine lines of latitude and longitude to form a grid. Using the lines of latitude and longitude on the global grid, you can locate places.

Kinds of Maps:

Geographers make different kinds of maps for different puposes. Maps that show the different features are called physical maps.

the Mideast and Southeast:

The Midwest is an inland region. It doesnot border any ocean. However,the Great Lakes form part of that they hold one-fifty of all the fresh water on Earth.

This is a map of the world. But all of the continents are not this big, and the oceans aren`t this big either. They are all much bigger.
