INTERPRETING INFORMATION What is Interpreting Information? You can use maps, charts, and timelines to interpret information. On Maps: A map is a drawing created to represent the world or a part of the world's surface. A map has many different tools to help us interpret all of the information on the map. Symbols are used to represent the features shown on maps. A legend lists the symbols used on the map and tells us what the symbols mean. A compass shows north, south, east, and west on a map. An index helps you locate specific places such as cities and streets on a map. A scale on a map helps you measure distance between two places. On Charts: Charts are visual displays of information. They reveal information through mathematical statistics. Example: According to this pie chart, we can see that Paul received 35% of the votes. On Timelines: A timeline is used to show events in the ordered that they occurred, which means a timeline is always in chronological order. Example: Peyton had to make a timeline of his life so far for a school project. He made sure he included his birthday, the date of his first day of school, the date he learned to ride a bicycle, and the date he won his first trophy. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
