Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.

Forestry was prominent in Sheet Harbour during its early years. The first sulphide pulp mill in the Dominion of Canada was constructed along the East River in 1885. It was closed in 1891, due to the high prices of importing sulphide. Another pulp mill was constructed beside the West River Falls in 1925, but it was destroyed by Hurricane Beth in August 1971. The economy of the community today relies on forestry, fishing and tourism. Southwest of the community is the Sheet Harbour Industrial Port, an important regional deep-water port.
