Unformatted text preview: earth and error associated with a projection? 11. Understand the basic principles behind how UTM and State Plane coordinates are constructed for any area. 12. In Digital Earth applications (i.e. GIS) we normally use 2 methods (models) of representing spatial data (themes, layers) as they are stored. What are these 2 type of spatial models? Give examples of each. 13. What is the effect of scale on how features are represented according to 12 above? 14. What is the difference between a spatial model and a file format for spatial data. 15. Understand map scale. How is it calculated, what does it represent. 16. How is accuracy different from precision with respect to measurement on a map. 17. Understand why maps created at large and small scales will have different accuracy thresholds. 18. How can map generalization (what features are shown and how they are shown) be a function of the creation scale of a map....
