  1. 1. CGC Maps and Mapping, and Natural Systems: Review Sheet Name: _____________________Maps and Mapping1. List the basic map rules.2. Define the following terms and/or understand the concepts. We recommend you make word webs (mind maps) for each of the terms. This will allow you to fully develop your understanding and see the interconnections between various elements. province territory hemisphere continent map topographic map contour line chloropleth map annotated map thematic map absolute location relative location latitude longitude Prime Meridian Equator International Date Line geographic grid map north true north magnetic north north pole south pole map scale compass rose military grid alphanumeric grid3. Why is a globe the only accurate way to represent the earth?4. List the basic rules of contouring.Natural Systems1. Identify the 15 terrestrial ecozones on the attached map of Canada.
  2. 2. 2. Define the following terms and/or understand the concepts. We recommend you make word webs (mind maps) for each of the terms. This will allow you to fully develop your understanding and see the interconnections between various elements. landorm region ecozone cordillera lowland highland plateau topography relief plate tectonics fault magma convection current basalt granite trench mantle continental drift convergent boundary divergent boundary transverse boundary subduction zone mid-oceanic ridge/rift (MOR) Alfred Wegener ocean trench earthquake megathrust earthquake richter scale mercalli scale epicentre focus Pacific Ring of fire3. Make a fully labelled sketch of both a convergent and divergent tectonic boundary. Provide two (2) example s of where each may be found.4. Explain the theory of plate tectonics.5. Why are most earthquakes and volcanoes located near plate boundaries?6. Why are vast areas of Canada sparsely populated? Could this change in the future? Explain.7. Explain why the west coast of Canada has so many earthquakes. Inlcude at least one brief sketch in your answer.
