Toponym = Place Name What do toponyms tell

Toponym = Place Name What do toponyms tell us about a particular location? - and the people who gave it the name! Looking at the toponyms for these two counties in Colorado, what can you learn about the people who named the towns, counties, rivers, etc.? Beyond toponyms: another way of identifying a location and making it distinct is site and situation. Site = the unique physical

characteristics of a particular location Climate, landforms, etc., are physical characteristics A locations site changes very little over time Situation = the relationship between a particular location and other locations How is a particular location

connected with others via highways, railroads, seaborn trade, telecommunications, etc.? Situation can change drastically over time! - Give some examples The image below is focused on Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Describe, as best you can, the site and situation of Quebec City.

The image below is centered on Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Describe, as best you can, the site and situation of Quebec City The image below is centered on Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Describe, as best you can, the site and situation of Quebec City Mathematical Location: A Precise Location on the Earths Surface Also know as absolute

location Coordinates given for a location can be very precise Not used by most people when describing a location

Longitude Is measured from the Prime Meridian (0) to 180 The Prime Meridian runs through a section of London

Longitude helps determine location east and west from the Prime Meridian All lines of longitude meet at the poles and are farthest

apart at the equator Latitude Lines of latitude run east west around the Earths surface The equator is 0 and the

lines of latitude determine the distance from the equator Lines of latitude are parallel and thus never meet

You move about 70 miles on the Earths surface for every 1 of latitude Thinking about the three ways of identifying place, what are the strengths and weaknesses of each? Toponym Site & Situation Mathematical
