Sanctuary, Marshfield -- July 20

N 42° 05' 50" W 70° 43' 45"
(including how to look them up by address)

The EarthView is very pleased to be part of the Sanctuary Day Camp at the Sanctuary congregation in Marshfield. Campers have been learning and celebrating many different things about the earth, its environments and peoples. Throughout the day, learners of all ages were able to use EarthView and our Hobo-Dyer-Mead south-up map to locate places they were interested in.
EarthView is a physical map; it works well in combination with the
 Hobo-Dyer-Mead map from ODT Publishing.
One of the places we mentioned to campers is the city of Macapá, the capital of the State of Amapá, Brazil. It is a city that is located where the Equator meets the Atlantic Ocean. Famously, its main soccer (football) stadium (Milton Stadium Souza Corrêa) is positioned so that opposing teams are in opposite hemispheres, with the centerfield line at 0 degrees latitude!
