RevisionPresentation Transcript

• Map???A map is a drawing or picture, which shows the main features on the ground, as they would be seen from directly above. It could be anything from a sketch map for a visitor to your school, or a detailed map of your local town centre.A map can show many different things, such as road and railways, hill and rivers, countries and capitals and so on. The main purpose of a map is to show where places or things are in relation to other places.
• List of map skills to master!• Direction  8 point compass• Scale  for example, 1:50 000• Distance  straight line and squiggly line• 4 and 6 figure grid-reference• OS map symbols• Height  spot height, triangulation pillar, contour lines and colour shading
• Direction
• Compass Directions68 N F H NW NE I D A W E67 J C G SE B SW E66 S 21 22 23 24 What direction are you walking ? A C G D F H I J B E A
• What is a Scale?Every map has a scale printed on the front or thebottom of the page and you should always check thisfigure before you start reading it. It will tell you howmuch smaller the area shown on the map is comparedto the same area in real life.
• What is a Scale?For example, a 1:50000 scale map, means thatone centimetre on the map is the same as50000 centimetres in real life, or in otherword, 500 metres. Or everything has beenshrank (reduced by) 50,000 times to make themap.
• My scale is 1:50,000 2cm = 1000m  it is 1km 5cm = 2500m  2.5km1cm = 500m 9cm = 4500m  4.5km 14cm = 7000m  7km
