This is a very accurate way of pinpointing an exact location of a place.
But how does it work?
Slide 2 - Slide
We have the equator at 0 degrees latitude. The equator divides the earth in the Northern and Southern hemisphere.
Slide 3 - Slide
At the North and South pole we've reached the maximum amount of degrees, that is 90.
Keep in mind that the degrees aren't the temperature, but the distance from the equator.
Slide 4 - Slide
Slide 5 - Video
Meridians of longitude run from the North pole to the South pole and run in a 360 degree circle. These meridians of longitude tell us wether we are on the western part of the world or the eastern part.
Slide 6 - Slide
This prime meridian runs through Greenwich and splits the Earth in the Western and Eastern hemispheres.
The longitude lines go from 1 degrees west longitude until 180 degrees (half of the earth)
Slide 7 - Slide
While using the latitude and longitude lines we can pinpoint the precise location of a certain place on the Earth.
