NSDL teaching resources related to “projection”

In this activity, students will develop and be able to manipulate a grid coordinate system on a 7.5 minute series local topographic map. Students will learn to use the grid coordinate protractor (GCP) to plot azimuth values as a means of indicating direction on these maps; they will also learn to perform simple map traverses.
