How to find Latitude Longitude from Topographic Map
 
03:11
Generally speaking, when navigating from a map in Hiking, you use a topographic map and work from 8 digit Grid References. I generally use a 1:25,000 map where available. However, sometimes it may be necessary to use Latitude Longitude Co-ordinates, for example in an emergency you may need to quote this to rescue organisations. Here's how to read the Lat Long from a Toppo map. Subscribe to the blog at: http://lotsafreshair.com

Canada VNC and VTA charts
 
02:02
As a result of our expanded relationship with NAV CANADA, we are excited to announce the availability of digital Visual Navigation Charts (VNC) and Visual Terminal Area (VTA) charts in ForeFlight Mobile. The new Canada VNC map layer shows the entire mosaic of VNCs, with VTAs automatically appearing as you zoom into metropolitan areas. These charts can be downloaded to your iPad or iPhone for offline use. The VNC and VTA charts are geo-referenced and optimized for display on the iPad and have two unique features: the ability to dynamically hide or show chart legends, and the ability to change the stacking of charts to maximize clarity of chart features. The complete set of VNC, VTA, IFR enroute (low and high) charts, and Canada Air Pilot (CAP) are included with the ForeFlight Canada subscription, $149.99 USD per year. Pilots can purchase or add Canadian coverage at http://www.foreflight.com/buy-canada. Pilots who already have an existing ForeFlight Canada subscription can immediately start downloading VNC charts upon upgrading to ForeFlight Mobile 5.2 – the new data is included in the existing Canada plan.

1. Geography, Geographers, and Geography Tools - Zombie-Based Learning
 
04:33
Download the NOTES or take the QUIZ: http://zbl.im/quiz1 GEOGRAPHY INTRO: WHAT IS GEOGRAPHY? WHAT DO GEOGRAPHERS DO? WHAT TOOLS DO GEOGRAPHERS USE? WHAT IS GEOGRAPHY? - Let's break down the word "geography" geo- of the earth (geocentric, geology, geometry) graphy- writing or study of (cinematography, photography, typography, biography, etc) study of the earth - its features (landforms, climates) and its people WHAT DO GEOGRAPHER DO? Study the earth. How people and places interact. Ask and try to answer questions about the world. (How does where people live affect their lives? How do people change the earth? What will it be like if there are 10 million people on earth? How does globalization affect equality?) WHAT TOOLS DO GEOGRAPHERS USE? Geographers use all sorts of tools to help them investigate their questions. They commonly use maps, globes, atlases, aerial photographs, satellite photographs, information graphics, and a computer program called GIS. MAPS A map is a flat representation of a part of Earth. Geographers use many different types of maps. Maps can show lots of different information including the location of places on the world. Maps use projection to try and display a round object (Earth) on a flat surface (a map). Cartographers (map-makers) have long struggled with trying to find the most accurate projection to make maps with. ATLAS An atlas is a book of maps. An atlas contains maps of the world or a region of the world. Some atlases also include more information about the places they include in the maps. Atlases can be very helpful for traveling. Instead of brining many maps, you can bring one atlas. GLOBE A globe is a model of the Earth, used to avoid distortions in spatial relations on the world. Maps of the world are distorted from trying to make a round object fit on a flat surface. The globe is round, so it remains accurate. The globe provides an accurate scale of how far apart locations are. You can also use a globe to get a comparison of the size of different locations. AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS Aerial photographs are photographs taken from the sky and used to take measurements or create maps. Aerial photographs can be taken from airplanes, balloons, or even kites. SATELLITE PHOTOGRAPHS Satellite photographs are like aerial photographs, but they are taken from space. Satellite photographs can capture large areas of the Earth, but they can also zoom in pretty close. INFORMATION GRAPHICS Information Graphics or Infographics are visual symbols of data. They are images that show information using pictures or symbols. Information graphics can be as simple as a bar graph or as complex as the image to the left. GIS (Geographic Information System) GIS is a computer based program used to store, manage, and analyze data. A GIS map is more than a map because it can pull up a lot of information. Geographers use GIS to help make decisions. Imagine that you wanted to make sure schools were not near any factories that might pollute the air. With a GIS map, geographers can use the database (place that stores information) to show where all the schools are. They can then use the database to also show where all the factories are. The GIS helps geographers see all kinds of information and how it relates to locations.

Understanding Time Zones
 
04:17
Time zones are based on the fact that the Earth moves 15 degrees longitude each hour. Since there are 24 hours in a day there are 24 standard time zones. (24 hours x 15º=360º) Time zones are counted from the Prime Meridian (0º longitude). Each time zone is counted at 15 º intervals and extends 7½º either side of a central meridian. For example, Sydney, Australia lies in the 150ºE central meridian, and the time zone includes all locations between 142½ºE and 157½ºE.
Mechanism of The Seasons
 
06:00
Mechanism of The Seasons The seasons result from the Earth's axis being tilted to its orbital plane; it deviates by an angle of approximately 23.5 degrees. Thus, at any given time during summer or winter, one part of the planet is more directly exposed to the rays of the Sun. This exposure alternates as the Earth revolves in its orbit. Therefore, at any given time, regardless of season, the northern and southern hemispheres experience opposite seasons. The effect of axis tilt is observable from the change in day length, and altitude of the Sun at noon (the culmination of the Sun), during a year. Seasonal weather differences between hemispheres are further caused by the elliptical orbit of Earth. Earth reaches perihelion (the point in its orbit closest to the Sun) in January, and it reaches aphelion (farthest point from the Sun) in July. Even though the effect this has on Earth's seasons is minor, it does noticeably soften the northern hemisphere's winters and summers. In the southern hemisphere, the opposite effect is observed. Seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative to the plane of revolution. In temperate and polar regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface, variations of which may cause animals to go into hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant. During May, June and July, the northern hemisphere is exposed to more direct sunlight because the hemisphere faces the sun. The same is true of the southern hemisphere in November, December and January. It is the tilt of the Earth that causes the Sun to be higher in the sky during the summer months which increases the solar flux. However, due to seasonal lag, June, July and August are the hottest months in the northern hemisphere and December, January and February are the hottest months in the southern hemisphere.

All continents are shown at true size and proportion. The reference in the text on front to "Mecca being approximately at the center of the land mass of the world" can be said to be equally true of Jerusalem, or Athens for that matter. That region is roughly the antipode (point directly opposite on the globe) to the center of the Pacific Ocean, which is where the least land is located on Earth.

Special Use Airspace | 60 Second Flight Training
 
01:57
Introducing a brand new flight training series from US Sport Flight Academy: 60 Second Flight Training! 60 Second Flight Training will involve quick lessons, often 60 seconds or less, on key knowledge areas that you'll need to understand for your Private or Sport Pilot Checkride! Full Transcript: Hi everyone! Sam here from US Sport Flight Academy bringing you a quick lesson on Special Use Airspace! You can remember the types of Special Use Airspace by the mnemonic MCPRAWN: MOA, CFA, Prohibited, Restricted, Alert, Warning, and NSA. A Military Operations Area, or MOA, is established around nonhazardous military activities. MOA’s do not restrict VFR operations, but you should exercise caution when flying near or within an active MOA. A Controlled Firing Area, or CFA, is generally an area used for small arms target practice. They are not depicted on VFR sectionals, and you really shouldn’t have to worry about them when flying. A Prohibited Area is an area you may never fly through unless in emergencies when it can’t be safely avoided. A Restricted Area is not completely prohibited, but can be extremely hazardous when “hot,” or active. You can find the status of Restricted Areas, such as active hours and ATC frequencies, on the margin of your VFR sectional. An Alert Area is not regulated or under ATC jurisdiction, but you’ll need to be extra cautious of potential military training, parachuting, or glider activity in these areas. A Warning Area is only found offshore in areas of potentially hazardous activity. ATC clearance is not required but it is highly advisable to make contact first. A National Security Area, or NSA, is airspace through which flight is discouraged for reasons of national security. NSA’s can include TFR’s, or Temporary Flight Restrictions, when a greater level of security is necessary. You won’t find them on sectionals as they’re issued by NOTAMs, but you may never fly through a TFR. TFR’s often encompass sporting events, air shows, Presidential movements, and more. Always check NOTAMs and study the charts before you go fly! ------------------------------------------------ US Sport Flight Academy is a branch of US Sport Aircraft. Since 2006, US Sport Aircraft has sold over 600 aircraft, trained over 4000 pilots, and revolutionized flight training in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. And that was just the beginning. With the tripling of our flight instruction team, addition of dozens of new programs, and acquisition of a brand new flight training facility at Addison Airport, we have created the new benchmark for modern and efficient flight training! At US Sport Flight Academy you can earn your sport, private, instrument, commercial, multi, CFI, CFII, MEI, and more! And the best part? A guaranteed interview upon completion of our CFI program. You’ll build time as a flight instructor until reaching airline minimums – that’s just 2 years from zero to airline pilot! A unique feature of flight training at US Sport Flight Academy is that we also offer unconventional programs such as aerobatic training, tail wheel training, upset recovery, and more! You name it, we teach it! We offer both self-paced and accelerated training at a fraction of the cost of competing flight schools, and you’ll be doing it in brand new to late-model aircraft. Forget those rusty broken down antiques they fly at those other schools! A wide variety of aircraft and advanced glass cockpit avionics for as low as $125 an hour can’t be beat anywhere else – guaranteed! Our team is here and ready to fly – give us a call and make your dreams become a reality! ------------------------------------------------ Additional stock footage provided by Videezy.com

Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartography Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ ...In cartography, technology has continually changed in order to meet the demands of new generations of mapmakers and map users. The first maps were manually constructed with brushes and parchment... Advances in mechanical devices such as the printing press, quadrant and vernier, allowed for the mass production of maps and the ability to make accurate reproductions from more accurate data. Optical technology, such as the telescope, sextant and other devices that use telescopes, allowed for accurate surveying of land and the ability of mapmakers and navigators to find their latitude by measuring angles to the North Star at night or the sun at noon... Advances in electronic technology in the 20th century ushered in another revolution in cartography. Ready availability of computers and peripherals such as monitors, plotters, printers, scanners (remote and document) and analytic stereo plotters, along with computer programs for visualization, image processing, spatial analysis, and database management, have democratized and greatly expanded the making of maps. The ability to superimpose spatially located variables onto existing maps created new uses for maps... These days most commercial-quality maps are made using software that falls into one of three main types: CAD, GIS and specialized illustration software. Spatial information can be stored in a database, from which it can be extracted on demand. These tools lead to increasingly dynamic, interactive maps that can be manipulated digitally. With the field rugged computers, GPS and laser rangefinders, it is possible to perform mapping directly in the terrain. Construction of a map in real time, for example by using Field-Map technology, improves productivity and quality of the result... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topographic_map A topographic map is a type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines in modern mapping, but historically using a variety of methods. Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features... A contour line is a combination of two line segments that connect but do not intersect; these represent elevation on a topographic map. The Canadian Centre for Topographic Information provides this definition: A topographic map is a detailed and accurate graphic representation of cultural and natural features on the ground. Other authors define topographic maps by contrasting them with another type of map; they are distinguished from smaller-scale "chorographic maps" that cover large regions, "planimetric maps" that do not show elevations, and "thematic maps" that focus on specific topics. However, in the vernacular and day to day world, the representation of relief (contours) is popularly held to define the genre... The study or discipline of topography, while interested in relief, is actually a much broader field of study which takes into account all natural and man made features of terrain... By the 1980s, centralized printing of standardized topographic maps began to be eroded by databases of coordinates that could be used on computers by moderately skilled end users to view or print maps with arbitrary contents, coverage and scale. For example the Federal government of the United States' TIGER initiative compiled interlinked databases of federal, state and local political borders and census enumeration areas, and of roadways, railroads, and water features with support for locating street addresses within street segments. TIGER was developed in the 1980s and used in the 1990 and subsequent decennial censuses. Digital elevation models (DEM) were also compiled, initially from topographic maps and stereographic interpretation of aerial photographs and then from satellite photography and radar data... TIGER and DEM datasets greatly facilitated Geographic information systems and made the Global Positioning System much useful... By the mid-1990s... integration of GPS with mobile phones and automotive navigation systems appeared...

Geographic coordinates are expressed in angular measurement. Each circle is divided into 360 degrees, each degree into 60 minutes, and each minute into 60 seconds. The degree is symbolized by ° , the minute by ′, and the second by ″. Starting with 0° at the equator, the parallels of latitude are numbered to 90° both north and south. The extremities are the north pole at 90° north latitude and the south pole at 90° south latitude. Latitude can have the same numerical value north or south of the equator, so the direction N or S must always be given. Starting with 0° at the prime meridian, longitude is measured both east and west around the world. Lines east of the prime meridian are numbered to 180° and identified as east longitude; lines west of the prime meridian are numbered to 180° and identified as west longitude. The direction E or W must always be given. The line directly opposite the prime meridian, 180° , may be referred to as either east or west longitude. The values of geographic coordinates, being in units of angular measure, will mean more if they are compared with units of measure with which we are more familiar. At any point on the earth, the ground distance covered by one degree of latitude is about 111 kilometers (69 miles); one second is equal to about 30 meters (100 feet). The ground distance covered by one degree of longitude at the equator is also about 111 kilometers, but decreases as one moves north or south, until it becomes zero at the poles. For example, one second of longitude represents about 30 meters (100 feet) at the equator; but at the latitude of Washington, DC, one second of longitude is about 24 meters (78 feet). Geographic coordinates appear on all standard military maps; on some they may be the only method of locating and referencing a specific point. The four lines that enclose the body of the map (neatlines) are latitude and longitude lines. Their values are given in degrees and minutes at each of the four corners. On a portion of the Columbus map (Figure 4-4), the figures 32° 15' and 84° 45' appear at the lower right corner. The bottom line of this map is latitude 32° 15'00″N, and the line running up the right side is longitude 84° 45'00"W. In addition to the latitude and longitude given for the four corners, there are, at regularly spaced intervals along the sides of the map, small tick marks extending into the body of the map. Each of these tick marks is identified by its latitude or longitude value. Near the top of the right side of the map is a tick mark and the number 20'. The full value for this tick marks is 32° 20'00" of latitude. At one-third and two-thirds of the distance across the map from the 20' tick mark will be found a cross tick mark (grid squares 0379 and 9679) and at the far side another 20' tick mark. By connecting the tick marks and crosses with straight lines, a 32° 20'00" line of latitude can be added to the map. This procedure is also used to locate the 32° 25'00" line of latitude. For lines of longitude, the same procedure is followed using the tick marks along the top and bottom edges of the map. After the parallels and meridians have been drawn, the geographic interval (angular distance between two adjacent lines) must be determined. Examination of the values given at the tick marks gives the interval. For most maps of scale 1:25,000, the interval is 2'30". For the Columbus map and most maps of scale 1:50,000, it is 5'00". The geographic coordinates of a point are found by dividing the sides of the geographic square in which the point is located into the required number of equal parts. If the geographic interval is 5'00" and the location of a point is required to the nearest second, each side of the geographic square must be divided into 300 equal parts (5'00" = 300"), each of which would have a value of one second. Any scale or ruler that has 300 equal divisions and is as long as or longer than the spacing between the lines may be used.

Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features. A topographic map is typically published as a map series, made up of two or more map sheets that combine to form the whole map. A contour line is a combination of two line segments that connect but do not intersect; these represent elevation on a topographic map. The Canadian Centre for Topographic Information provides this definition of a topographic map: A topographic map is a detailed and accurate graphic representation of cultural and natural features on the ground. Other authors define topographic maps by contrasting them with another type of map; they are distinguished from smaller-scale "chorographic maps" that cover large regions, "planimetric maps" that do not show elevations, and "thematic maps" that focus on specific topics. However, in the vernacular and day to day world, the representation of relief (contours) is popularly held to define the genre, such that even small-scale maps showing relief are commonly (and erroneously, in the technical sense) called "topographic". The study or discipline of topography, while interested in relief, is actually a much broader field of study which takes into account all natural and man made features of terrain. Topographic maps are based on topographical surveys. Performed at large scales, these surveys are called topographical in the old sense of topography, showing a variety of elevations and landforms. This is in contrast to older cadastral surveys, which primarily show property and governmental boundaries. The first multi-sheet topographic map series of an entire country, the Carte géométrique de la France, was completed in 1789. The Great Trigonometric Survey of India, started by the East India Company in 1802, then taken over by the British Raj after 1857 was notable as a successful effort on a larger scale and for accurately determining heights of Himalayan peaks from viewpoints over one hundred miles distant... United States The United States Geological Survey (USGS), a civilian Federal agency, produces several national series of topographic maps which vary in scale and extent, with some wide gaps in coverage, notably the complete absence of 1:50,000 scale topographic maps or their equivalent. The largest (both in terms of scale and quantity) and best-known topographic series is the 7.5-minute or 1:24,000 quadrangle. This scale is unique to the United States, where nearly every other developed nation has introduced a metric 1:25,000 or 1:50,000 large scale topo map. The USGS also publishes 1:100,000 maps covering 30 minutes latitude by one degree longitude, 1:250,000 covering one by two degrees, and state maps at 1:500,000 with California, Michigan and Montana needing two sheets while Texas has four. Alaska is mapped on a single sheet, at scales ranging from 1:1,584,000 to 1:12,000,000. Recent USGS digital US Topo 1:24,000 topo maps based on the National Map omit several important geographic details that were featured in the original USGS topographic map series (1945-1992). Examples of omitted details and features include power transmission lines, telephone lines, railroads, recreational trails, pipelines, survey marks, and buildings. For many of these feature classes, the USGS is working with other agencies to develop data or adapt existing data on missing details that will be included in The National Map and to US Topo. In other areas USGS digital map revisions may omit geographic features such as ruins, mine locations, springs, wells, and even trails in an effort to protect natural resources and the public at large, or because such features are not present in any public domain database...

Topographic Maps

Topographic map - Plate Tectonics A topographic map with contour lines Part of the same map in a perspective shaded relief view illustrating how the contour lines follow the terrain Section of topographical map of Nablus area (West Bank) with contour lines at 100-meter intervals. Heights are colour-coded In modern mapping, a topographic map is a type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines, but historically using a variety of methods. Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features. A topographic map is typically published as a map series, made up of two or more map sheets that combine to form the whole map. A contour line is a line connecting places of equal elevation. Natural Resources Canada provides this description of topographic maps:[1] These maps depict in detail ground relief (landforms and terrain), drainage (lakes and rivers), forest cover, administrative areas, populated areas, transportation routes and facilities (including roads and railways), and other man-made features. Other authors define topographic maps by contrasting them with another type of map; they are distinguished from smaller-scale "chorographic maps" that cover large regions,[2][3] "planimetric maps" that do not show elevations,[4] and "thematic maps" that focus on specific topics.[5] However, in the vernacular and day to day world, the representation of relief (contours) is popularly held to define the genre, such that even small-scale maps showing relief are commonly (and erroneously, in the technical sense) called "topographic".[3] The study or discipline of topography is a much broader field of study, which takes into account all natural and man-made features of terrain. History[edit] See also: Topography § Etymology, Cadastre § History, and Cartography § History Topographic maps are based on topographical surveys. Performed at large scales, these surveys are called topographical in the old sense of topography, showing a variety of elevations and landforms.[6] This is in contrast to older cadastral surveys, which primarily show property and governmental boundaries. The first multi-sheet topographic map series of an entire country, the Carte géométrique de la France, was completed in 1789.[7] The Great Trigonometric Survey of India, started by the East India Company in 1802, then taken over by the British Raj after 1857 was notable as a successful effort on a larger scale and for accurately determining heights of Himalayan peaks from viewpoints over one hundred miles distant.[8] Global indexing system first developed for International Map of the World Topographic surveys were prepared by the military to assist in planning for battle and for defensive emplacements (thus the name and history of the United Kingdom's Ordnance Survey). As such, elevation information was of vital importance.[9] As they evolved, topographic map series became a national resource in modern nations in planning infrastructure and resource exploitation. In the United States, the national map-making function which had been shared by both the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of the Interior migrated to the newly created United States Geological Survey in 1879, where it has remained since.[10][11] 1913 saw the beginning of the International Map of the World initiative, which set out to map all of Earth's significant land areas at a scale of 1:1 million, on about one thousand sheets, each covering four degrees latitude by six or more degrees longitude. Excluding borders, each sheet was 44 cm high and (depending on latitude) up to 66 cm wide. Although the project eventually foundered, it left an indexing system that remains in use. By the 1980s, centralized printing of standardized topographic maps began to be superseded by databases of coordinates that could be used on computers by moderately skilled end users to view or print maps with arbitrary contents, coverage and scale. For example, the Federal government of the United States' TIGER initiative compiled interlinked databases of federal, state and local political borders and census enumeration areas, and of roadways, railroads, and water features with support for locating street addresses within street segments. TIGER was developed in the 1980s and used in the 1990 and subsequent decennial censuses. Digital elevation models (DEM) were also compiled, initially from topographic maps and stereographic interpretation of aerial photographs and then from satellite photography and radar data. Since all these were government projects funded with taxes and not classified for national security reasons, the datasets were in the public domain and freely usable without fees or licensing.
