  3. 3. Lines of Latitude - Are imaginary lines. - They run east to west around the globe. - They are parallel to one another. - They are located approximately 111km apart on the earth’s surface.
  4. 4. Geography of Canada Longitude  Imaginary lines on a map that divides the planet into vertical wedges.  Sometimes these lines are called Meridians  They do not run parallel to each other, but converge at the North / South Poles.  The line of longitude at 00 is called the Prime Meridian and can be located in Greenwich, London, England.  The International Dateline is at 1800 and is found on the opposite side of the planet.
  5. 5. Geography of Canada Longitude  Time Zones the planet is divided into one hour segments. each segment is approximately 150 and makes up 24 sections/hours. Canada has six (6) time zones (Newfoundland, Atlantic, Eastern, Central, Mountain & Pacific.
  6. 6. Geography of Canada Longitude  Navigation Uses lines of longitude are used in unison with latitudinal lines to locate places and features on a map. found in GPS, satellites, military, aviation, nautical systems, etc.

Political - Major cities in an area will have the same time. - Opening and closing of government offices would be standard in an area. - Provinces will have standard for continuity. Economical - Stores and offices will be open at convenient times of the day. - People leaving home will have the same time as their place of work. - Phoning /emailing places around the world will be standardized by region. Social - People with similar cultural characteristics who live in a particular region will have a standard time.
  10. 10. Geography of Canada Time Zones How are the Zones determined? - Using water barriers, like rivers, lakes and seas. - Physical barriers, like mountains, deserts, forests. - Political boundaries could be used to separate time zones. Any physical or human feature that causes a natural break in the communication between populations living in an area.
  11. 11. Geography of Canada The 24 hour Clock 01:00 = 1am 02:00 = 2am 11:00 = 11am 13:00 = 1pm 16:00 = 4pm 19:00 = 7pm 21:00 = 9pm 23:00 = 11pm
