What time is it? Useful links for pre-cal students.


Here is some additional info for all you eager pre-cal students.  Hopefully it will be helpful as you work on your packet.

Copy of Intro Slides and version with in-class notes <—here is a copy of the slides that we presented at the beginning of class (Burj Dubai example).

Altitude/Azimuth Tables <—be careful if your structure is not in the US.  You’ll need to enter latitude/longitude and the time zone (number of zones and direction away from GMT)

Find the lat/long of a location using Google Maps <—very helpful if you can’t find the coordinates on Wikipedia

Screenshot <– If you need to capture a screenshot to print a satellite image, use the “Print Scrn” button on your keyboard, then paste the image into a document and print.
