How is 90 degrees north different than 90 degrees south?

The Equator is the line of 0 degrees latitude. Each parallel measures one degree north or south of the Equator, with 90 degrees north of the Equator and 90 degrees south of the Equator. The latitude of the North Pole is 90 degrees N, and the latitude of the South Pole is 90 degrees S.

What is the highest longitude possible?

180 meridian
Lines of longitude (meridians) running north-south around the globe measure distances EAST and WEST of the Prime Meridian. Directly on the opposite side of the earth from the prime meridian is located the 180 meridian. This is the highest longitude possible.

Where is 60 degrees north 100 degrees west?

Latitude is the degrees (and fractional degrees) north or south of the equator. This sounds like a homework question on how to use latitude and longitude. The short answer is Africa.

What is the mid point of the latitude and longitude?

The mid-point of these quadrants is 0 degrees latitude (the equator) and 0 degrees longitude (the North-South line that runs through Greenwich Observatory). Latitude increases as you go North, making the Northern Hemisphere positive latitude and the Southern Hemisphere negative latitude. Paris, for example, is at about 48, 2.

Which is the number of degrees north or south of the equator?

Latitude is the number of degrees north or south of the equator, the imaginary line that runs horizontally through the Earth. Longitude is the number of degrees east or west of the prime meridian, an even more imaginary line because it was made up. Stand up and imagine your feet represent an exact point on Earth. Do you know which way North is?

Are there any cities in the world that are 50 degrees west?

Seriously, check the map! The only non-Brazilian place at 50 degrees West is the tiny and remote Qaqortoq, Greenland. Locations in the North and South are best known for their extremes. The poles are each covered in snow year round, so expect cold temperatures in these cities to the far North and South.

What’s the difference between latitude and longitude in Europe?

Paris, for example, is at about 48, 2. Latitude usually comes first in the pairing. Latitude runs between 90 degrees South (-90) and 90 degrees North, both extremes coming at the Earth’s poles. Longitude increases as you go East, making Eastern Hemisphere (i.e., most of Europe) positive longitude and the Western Hemisphere negative longitude.
