exposed to the rays. At mid-latitude locations in summer‚ for example‚ days are long and the Sun rises to a position high in the sky‚ heating the surface more intensely. How does the angle of the Sun vary during the day? It depends on the Sun’s path. Near noon‚ the Sun is high above the horizon—the Sun’s angle is greater‚ and so insolation is higher. The seasonal pattern of daily insolation provides a convenient way to divide the globe into broad latitude zones. The equatorial zone encompasses

The graticule‚ the mesh formed by the lines of constant latitude and constant longitude‚ is constructed by reference to the rotation axis of the Earth. The primary reference points are the poles where the axis of rotation of the Earth intersects the reference surface. Planes which contain the rotation axis intersect the surface in the meridians and the angle between any one meridian plane and that through Greenwich (the Prime Meridian) defines the longitude: meridians are lines of constant longitude

Vehicle and report the status of the Vehicle on demand. For doing so an AT89S52 microcontroller is interfaced serially to a GSM Modem and GPS Receiver. A GSM modem is used to send the position (Latitude and Longitude) of the vehicle from a remote place. The GPS modem will continuously give the data i.e. the latitude and longitude indicating the position of the vehicle. The GPS modem gives many parameters as the output‚ but only the NMEA data coming out is read and displayed on to the LCD. The same data
