Science Junction: Which Way Is North?

3/18/2013 9:19:00 PM
Work on your map reading skills with this site that combines panoramic views of geological formations and contour maps, used to find geographic north. Explore the panoramas by zooming in and out of the images and moving your mouse on the picture to create the panorama. Examine the images, compare the photograph with the contour map, and figure out which way is north. If you are wrong, you are encouraged to try again. If you are right, move on to exploring the next location.
