Map Group Presentation

How the USA States Got Their Shapes
Presenter: Keith Treschman

Keith is a member of RGSQ. He has taught Science for over 40 years in Queensland secondary schools.  He holds a PhD in Astronomy, an area in which he is passionate. He has lectured on this topic onboard Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth.

He has visited the 7 continents and enjoys geographical places, for example, Hawaii, Great Rift Valley of Africa, Galápagos Islands, Jordan River and Antarctica.

His previous presentations to the Map Group were: Mapping the Night Sky, Areography (Geography of Mars), Life on Europa? An Application of Geography, Struve Geodetic Arc, Plate Tectonics and Seabed 2030.

On a map of the USA, one notices some straight horizontal and vertical lines, but then there are also angled lines, non-straight lines, lines with no apparently defined shape.  Keith will explain these features by reference to history and geography.
