 Conic Projection Type of map created by plotting points and lines from a globe onto a cone shaped map Contour Interval The degree of difference between contour lines adjacent to each other. Contour Line A topographic map line that connects points having the same elevation equator Represents O* latitude across Earth... the line used on maps to separate Earth into two equal halves: a northern and sourthern half Fault Block Mountain mountain created when huge sections of jagged rocks are pushed upward or downward at an angle along a fault line Folded Mountain Mountains produced when stretches of rock are pressed together, forcing them into a rippled shape throughout the middle International Dateline line on the opposite side of Earth from the prime meridian- measuring 180* longitude and marking the change of the calendar day Landsat Sattelite a satellite that uses mirrors to collect information about the energy being collected by or released from Earth's surface Latitude measure of distance either north or south of the equator Longitude measure of distance either east or west of the prime meridian map legend a key that explains what the symbols on a map represent Map Scale proportion sharing the relationship between the sizes and distances drawn on a map to the actual sizes and distances they represent Mercator Projection a method for creating maps in which parallel longitude lines accurately reflect the shape of land masses, but do not accurately represent the areas covered by them plain a landform that is almost entirely flat and stretches over a large area Plateau a landform that is made of long rows of rock of the same height bordering mountainous areas Prime Meridian line used on maps to separate Earth into two halves...east and west...this line represents 0* longitude Robinson Projection a method for creating maps that has curved lines of longitude to reflect the fact that the Earth is round.
