Latitude refers to imaginary lines that run from east to west. These lines that range from 0 -90 degrees are found north or south of the equator
Longitude refers imaginary lines that run from the North to the South Pole. Measured in degrees ranging from 0 to 180 degrees, longitude is the distance east or west of the prime meridian ( which is at 0 degrees and runs through Greenwich, England)
These imaginary lines form a grid system which makes it easy to pinpoint any place on the globe. These lines measured in degrees are further divided into minutes and seconds for more exact locations.
1. To locate certain areas in the world, one must use longitude and latitudes to locate places. Both are used to locate. We must read the latitude lines first and then the longitude lines. So, we to intersect the latitude and longitude to locate a specific place in the world.
2. The latitude line that has a 0 degree is the equator. It lies in the middle of the Earth, dividing the Earth in half.
Coordinates... We use the Latitude and Longitude as X and Y coordinate... Either North,South,West,or East Using coordinates makes your location precise
D. beacuse imaginary lines of latitude and longitude intersect each other, forming a grid that covers the Earth and helps us locate points on it. The Equator is the line of 0° latitude, the starting point for measuring latitude. The latitude of the North Pole is 90° N, and that of the South Pole is 90° S.
people nust look at a map
To locate the exact place on the earth you must look at the intersecting of latitude and longtitude...
You must look at the intersecting of latitude and longitude
