What is the width of a time zone?
Why do time zones not exactly follow meridians?
It is hard to draw a straight line on a globe
They are altered by boundaries.
Time zones follow parallels exactly
Meridians are not the same interval
What is the starting point for time zones?
The Prime Meridian
The International Date Line
The Central Time Zone
Uses lines, shading and color to indicate features such as mountains, lakes & streams.
Uses solid and dashed lines to show the boundaries between countries, states, counties/parishes, or towns.
What is GPS?
Global Positioning Skouby
Global Provided System
Global Point Scene
Global Positioning System
