Human Geography

 

Respond to the following prompts:

1- After reading the appendix goto the USGS map projections page at (httpzllegsc-usgs-gov/isbI/pubslMapProjections/projections-html)- Which projection
dates back over 2,000 years to the Egyptians and Greeks? Which projection shows true direction? Which projection would be your best choice to use for
navigation in a conical layout? Pick an ocean and discuss which projection you would use to map it and why.

2- Imagine that a transportation device (perhaps like Harry Potter’s floo powder) would enable all humans to travel instantaneously to any location on Earth-
What might be the impact on the distribution of people and activities across Earth?
