Latitude and Longitude
Longitude and latitude are descriptions of where places are located on Earth using a map.
What is the central line of latitude called?
What North American city is 61 degrees N and 150 degrees W?
Does climate and vegetation vary with latitude only?
No, it is also determined by Elevation
What are the parallels halfway between the equator and the poles?
I believe you mean the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, but they are not half way (ie 45 degrees north and south) they are 23° 26′ 16″ N and S respectively.
I believe you mean the parallels halfway between the equator and the poles,
since that's the way you worded the question.
They are the parallels of 45° North latitude and 45° South latitude.
What imaginary line is halfway between the north and south poles?
The Equator is the imaginary line halfway between the North and South Poles and is at zero degrees latitude. It divides the Earth into North and South Hemispheres and is equidistant from the North Pole and South Pole. The Sun appears directly above the Equator at the Autumn and Spring equinox.
Are you closer to the equator in northern Argentina or in southern Spain?
Assuming that YOU were in either of those locations:
Northern Argentina is closer to the equator. The latitude of the equator is zero. Latitudes increase as you move farther from the equator, both north and south.
The northernmost point in Argentina is near 21.8° south latitude while the southernmost point in Spain is about 36° N near Gibraltar.
There are Spanish islands closer to the equator, the Canary Islands, at 27.6° N, but even so northern Argentina is closer to the equator by about 6° of latitude.
What is the Latitudinal and Longitudinal extent of Russia?
Russias huge, why you would want the exact coordinates is beyind me but here they are
Latitude: Approximately 43°N to 82°N
Longitude: Approximately 27°E to 165°W
It crosses the International date line
Where is 39.95 latitude and -75.15 Longitude?
That point is in the block bounded by Market St., Chestnut St., S. 5th and S.6th St.,
in Philadelphia, PA. It's the block immediately north of Independence Hall.
What city is located at 33 N 84 W?
There's no city there. That point is about 1,360 feet west of Highway 83 and
1,375 feet north of Renouf Rd, in a wooded rural area of Monroe County GA.
That's about 3.9 miles southwest of the intersection of MLK Dr and W Main St
in downtown Forsyth, 23.2 miles northwest of downtown Macon, and 56.3 miles
south-southeast of the center of Atlanta.
What is the highest land form in Florida?
The highest point in Florida is Britton Hill, Lakewood Park in Walton County, in the
Florida Panhandle. Britton Hill is only 345 feet above sea level.
Which continents does the equator pass through?
The equator passes through South America and Africa, and through Asia in Indonesia.
What is the prime meridian?
The prime meridian is the arbitrary zero (0) line of longitude. It extends from the North Pole to the South Pole through Greenwich, England. It divides the Earth's surface into the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.
The zero line of latitude is a given, in the form of the equator. But for longitude, the line was agreed on at an international conference at Washington DC in 1884. The conference chose a line that had been established in 1851, and had become widely accepted internationally. France, however, continued to base its longitude on the Paris meridian until 1914, and still does on some maps.
It is the line of longitude (running North-South) at which the longitude is arbitrarily defined as 0° (zero degrees) longitude. It runs through the Royal Observatory at Greenwich and GMT is based from this meridian.
The Prime Meridian (zero degrees) is a line of Longitude, that passes from the North to South Pole, passing through the Greenwich Observatory, London, UK. All other meridians (lines of longitudes) take their degrees to West and East of the Prime Meridian. It is important in navigation, and along with lines of latitude, helps to pin-point accurately any spot on the Earth's surface.
the prime meridian is at 0 degree.longitudes are defined on prime meridian. prime meridian also divides the sphere, e.g. the Earth, into two hemispheres.
Which states southern border is latitude 35 degrees n?
Tennessee is close. West of Pickwick Lake, it's southern border is about 16 seconds
south of 35N. Beginning at Pickwick Lake, the border flips to about 26 seconds north
of 35N, and slopes steadily southward as you move east. It crosses 35N in the town of
Five Points and continues to slope southward until, at the North Carolina border, it's
about 41 seconds south of 35N.
Also, from the southeastern corner of Tennessee and eastward, North Carolina's
southern border stays within 1 minute of 35N for about 70 miles.
Which direction do lines of latitude run on maps and globes?
The lines of latitude tell the angle between a place and the Equator - the
imaginary line which runs east/west around the globe - at right angles to the
line connecting the north and south poles.
All lines of latitude are parallel to the Equator, and so they also run east/west
An easy way to remember the difference between latitude and longitude is
longitude has the word long in it. they go north and south or you may say up
and down and seem longer than the latitude lines which go left and right or
east and west. i dont think the lines actually are longer but they appear to be.
so think of it as longitude longer up and down. latitude the opposite, shorter,
left and right.
The lines of latitude on maps and globes 'run' in the same direction that
the marks on a ruler do.
What is at 34 degrees north and 118 degrees west?
34 degrees north and 118 degrees west is located on the block bounded by Athel Dr., Edgeridge Dr., Skyline Dr., and Descending Dr., on the north side of Workman Hill, in Hacienda Heights,
California, about 15 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles as the crow flies.
What city is 95 degrees north and 115 degrees west?
There is no such geographic coordinate as "95 degrees north". The greatest possible
latitude coordinate is 90 degrees.
You can't be any more north than the north Pole, located at 90Â° North latitude, and
you can't be any more south than the south Pole, located at 90Â° South latitude.
How do you measure your latitude at sea looking at the celestial pole?
At night in the northern hemisphere, measure the angle above the northern horizon of the star Polaris. The elevation of Polaris is, within three-quarters of a degree or so, your latitude.
If you also have a watch and a copy of the Nautical Almanac, you can apply a simple correction to calculate your latitude to whatever accuracy you can read your sextant.
Polaris isn't a particularly bright star, and a little mist at sea can prevent you from seeing it. A somewhat more useful observation is the "local apparent noon sight", measuring the altitude of the Sun and the exact time when the Sun is highest in the sky. This can give you an amazingly accurate one-observation "fix" of your position, and is the most common celestial observation. However, this does require an ACCURATE watch.
How do you describe a places relative location?
Relative Location is a places location in relationship to another place example: My house is by the theatre or, It is by the McDonalds, it could even be, The bug is by the pond, so there are some examples for you hope you enjoy ^.^
What are Greece's latitude and longitude line?
380 0' 0" N, 230 43' 0" E
What city is located 45 N latitude 93W longitude?
That point is 100-ft southwest of the intersection of Polaris Pl and Cowern Pl E,
2 miles west of the I-694 loop, in the NorthwoodPark/Hillside Park neighborhoods
of St. Paul MN.
Are latitude and longitude lines curve or straight?
They curve with the curve of the Earth.
What meridian is west of 45 degrees?
If you start at 45 degrees and travel west, you can reach any meridian at all.
What time is Ghana's capital city 0 degree when it is 12 noon in Jamaica 77 degree W?
Is Oregon boundary on 49 north latitude line?
No. Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota etc. are.
