Learn more about Lat/Long (including how to look them up by address)
Also, compare today's coordinates to those of other recent EarthView outings, near and far!

The EarthView team is happy to be making our second school visit of the week to Wynn Middle School in Tewksbury! Last year we had an interesting trip to the school as our GPS devices failed us, bringing us to the wrong location! John W. Wynn Middle School is located at 1 Griffin Way, not 1 Griffin Road. This led to much confusion and a hilarious ride to school, the story about that adventure can be found here

Our visit to the school last year also made national news! The article found in US News & World Report can be found here

This week, we came across a neat video explaining the different map projections and why they are distorted! Give it a watch and tell us what you think!

If you would like to visit the website mentioned at the end of the video where you can see the true size of a country compared to other countries, visit 

We hope that the students of Wynn Middle School enjoy their visit with EarthView! We will be back to the school in January!
