Demonstrates how global position systems are used, describes the importance of latitude and longitude, and explains how locations can be accurately defined. Using the basic directions--north, south, east, and west--the program explains how scientists determine latitude and longitude points and visits the Greenwich Observatory to see the home of the prime meridian. A discussion of meters, nautical miles, and geography rounds out this interesting look at measuring distance and location on a global level.
