There are many different coordinate systems. All of them are used to determine the position of points on the Earth's surface. Here are mainly geographical, flat rectangular and polar coordinates. In general, the coordinates are called angular and linear values, which determine the position of points on a surface or in space.
Geographical coordinates - this angle values - latitude and longitude coordinates, defining a point position on the globe. Latitude is the angle formed by the plane of the equator and the plumb line at a given point in the Earth's surface (Figure 25). This Read more [...]

With astigmatism eye on the retina does not create a clear picture of the subject addressed.

Terrestrial ball is a huge magnet, with two well defined magnetic poles. This is a point on the earth, in which the horizontal component of the earth's magnetism is zero. North magnetic pole is located at 74,9 ° c. sh. and 101 ° West. d, Southern - to 67,2 ° lat. sh. 142 ° c. etc.
The lines of magnetic force, going from one magnetic pole to the other, form the so-called magnetic meridians.
At the end of XII century in Europe the compass - the magnetic needle, mounted on cork floating in a container with water.
In our time, a compass - a well-known device for determining the horizon. Read more [...]
