Review the agonic line map (the line joining the points of zero magnetic variation) and the isogonic lines map (an imaginary line on a map joining points on the earth’s surface at which the magnetic declination is the same) below.
2. What is the difference between Agonic line and Isogonic line?
3. Why does magnetic declination increase as we go to the east coast or east coast of North America from the Agonic line? See the chart in the Introduction.
4. Why should one know magnetic declination while traveling or hiking in the east coast or west coast U.S but not concerned much in knowing the declination when he/she travels in the mid-west U.S?
