Google Earth Voyager Story: The Geometry of City Planning, Part 2

In this activity, learn about the geometry of city planning. We explore why many cities in the US and around the world are laid out in a rectangular grid made up of parallel and perpendicular lines. This companion to a Google Earth Voyager Story provides a deeper understanding of the geometric concepts introduced.
