    • Model or representation of the Earth’s surface
  • 3. Cardinal Directions
    • North, East, South & West
  • 4. True North
    • Geographic North Pole
  • 5. Magnetic Declination
    • The difference between geographic north & true north
  • 6. Equator
    • The circle halfway between the poles that divides the north & south
  • 7. Latitude
    • The distance north or south, measured in degrees, from the equator
  • 8. Longitude
    • Imaginary lines that pass through the poles

  • 18. Topographic Map
    • A map that shows surface features of the earth
  • 19. Elevation
    • The height of an object above sea level
  • 20. Contour Lines
    • Lines that connect points of equal elevation
  • 21. Contour Interval
    • The difference in elevation between one contour line and the next
  • 22. Relief
    • Difference in elevation between the highest & lowest points of an area
  • 23. Index Contour
    • Darker & heavier contour line, usually every 5 th line
