Description:

Developed for high school students, this Earth science resource utilizes a set of six enlargeable images to illustrate the meaning of map scale. Introductory text explains that because of the incremental changes in scale, the details in each image appear ten times larger than in the prior image. The first image in the set was taken at a scale that shows the globe, and the final image shows a city block in Atlanta, Georgia. There is an animation below the images that begins with the global view and zooms in on the Atlanta city block. Movie controls allow students to pause or replay the animation or to move backward or forward through it one frame at a time. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
