What is geographic coordinates?
The geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that can define any place on earth as a topographic point. In the geographic coordinate system, the world is addressed vertically and horizontally with latitude and longitude. The location of each point on the earth can be specified by using these latitudes and longitudes together.
What is latitude?
It is the angle of a point on the earth to the equator measured from the center of the earth. Parallel lines joining the same latitude angles are called parallels. The north pole is designated 90°N and the south pole is 90°S. The parallel that is in the middle of the distance between the poles, that is, the parallel (latitude) of 0°, is also called the equator. Thus, the equator divides the earth into the northern and southern hemispheres. The abbreviation of latitude consists of the first 3 letters of the word latitude, which is the English equivalent of latitude in lat.
What is longitude?
It is the angle of the longitude line or meridian that passes through a point on earth and joins the two poles with the reference or prime meridian (longitude) passing through Greenwich, south-east London. All meridians are semicircular, with 0 being 180°W to the west and 180°E to the east of the reference meridian, 360 semicircles, so the symmetry opposite the reference meridian is also the 180°W and 180°E meridian. Meridians are not parallel to each other, they merge at the north and south pole points. The abbreviation of longitude consists of the first 3 letters of the word longitude, which is the English equivalent of longitude.
