In this lesson, you will be learning all about mapmaking. We will learn what a map is and how mapmaking and map use has evolved over time. We will also be looking at how technology has impacted on mapmaking and map use today.
In this lesson, you will be learning how we can locate places in the world using lines of latitude and longitude. You will learn how the world is divided into hemispheres and become familiar with the world's major oceans.
In this lesson we will explore the term map projections and investigate the positives and negatives of two different map projections.
In this lesson we will begin to look at OS maps and map symbols. This is the start of a series of lessons aimed at developing the skills of using OS maps.
