Since the latitude/longitude coordinates comprise a system invented for the purpose of locating points on the surface of the earth, all latitudes and all longitudes are …located on the earth's surface.
The system of latitude and longitude coordinates was invented as a means of specifying locations on the earth. Every location on the earth has a unique set of latitude a…nd longitude coordinates, and every possible pair of latitude/longitude numbers you can name is on the earth. Perhaps the best answer to the question is: "All of them."
Latitude and longitude provide a "grid system" by which any location on Earth can be specified.
Latitude and longitude are used to find the degrees horizontally and vertically around the earth, pin-pointing a location.
They're both different software with different usages. Google earth is an earth visualizer, as well as a map, direction finder, and general combination of several us…eful google map utilities. Google latitude, however, is a software commonly found on the new google phones that allows you to reveal your current location to your friends and family and to find out theirs. It really depends on what you want to do.
The earth doesn't have latitude and longitude, but every point on it does. If you are marooned and need to call for help and need to tell others where you are, or if you …need to direct yourself or others to a specific point on the earth, or if you left off drilling an oil well in the middle and want to go back to the same place and resume, or if you're an airline pilot on a 5,000-mile flight and would really like to wind up close to the right place before your fuel runs out, or if you buy a field and want to put a paper in the county land office that describes exactly where your ownership covers, or are out sailing in the middle of the ocean and the thrill has worn off and you just want to take the shortest fastest most direct route back to your home on Cape Cod and you need to know what direction to point the boat, or any other situation where you want a method of precisely describing the location of points on the earth and accurately calculating the directions from one of them to another, you'll use the longitude and latitude of each point. A set of coordinates consists entirely of numbers, which mean exactly the same thing to everyone who sees them and can't be misunderstood or misinterpreted. It can be spoken in 20 seconds or written on 1/2 line, and it can describe a location anywhere on earth that's unique from all others to within a small fraction of an inch.
To establish precise locations for any point on the earth'ssurface.
When you use longitude and latitude it makes it much,much easier to find an specific place.First,you look for the longitude and then the latitude and then you run your bot…h fingers down the line until they both meet each other and that's when you find your place or city that you where looking for. ====== By taking a ruler and making one measurement up from the floor and one measurement from the corner of the room, you can come up with two numbers that exactly describe the location of any point on the entire wall. By doing exactly the same thing on the globe, you can come up with two numbers that exactly describe the location of any point on the entire Earth. You just have to know where each measurement starts from. And the rulers are printed right there on the globe for you.
For the same reason that the houses in most cities have numbers on them. It's convenient to be able to describe the location of a place with numbers. In other words, it's …practically indispensable for navigation.
You can "hyperlink" or bookmark locations or views from which you can return to with that exact view by creating a placemark and snapshot the current view onto that placemark.… When you're ready to capture the current view: 1. Create a new placemark in Google Earth 2. When "New Placemark" dialog comes up click "View" tab then click "Snapshot current view" Now you can save that place to your saved places or Email it to others. Right-mouse click on the Placemark and select "Email". Alternatively you can select "View in Google Maps" in the File menu. From the web browser you can select the link button to copy the URL of that view and cut-paste that in an e-mail or whatever. Answer #2 For a more advanced use of KML you can hyperlink and click from one placemark to another with hyperlinks in the descriptions of the placemarks that link to one another. This uses " feature-anchors " which can link to a placemark by it's id (not name). See related link below for examples.
You can toggle the display of latitude/longitude lines by pressing the keyboard short-cut Ctrl-L or by checking the "Grid" option in the View menu.
That's exactly the same as asking "How many different lengths are there on a piece of rope ?" There's no limit to the possible number of different measurements. If you na…me two different measurements, then no matter how close together they are, I can always name a new one that's in between yours. 'Latitude' on Earth covers a range of 180 degrees, from -90 at the south pole to +90 at the north pole. 'Longitude' covers a range of 360 degrees, being the angle that you can travel in an east or west direction, from the place you start, all the way around the Earth to the place you started from. Just like any other circle.
You have to look at the globe or map and see that it is divided into Northern Hemisphere and the Southern, then East and west. Look at the lines and what are you going to meas…ure ask your self if it is east to west or north to south. find the lines of latitude that measures it and remember to do latitude then longitude first if it is not matching up exactly just make something accurate line say if the line is 30 and it's in 35 write 35 :) Hope that helped
There is no such location. Every point on Earth has a latitude and longitude, otherwise that system wouldn't be much good for navigation.
If you take a ruler and make one measurement up from the floor and another measurement sideways from the corner of the room, you can come up with two numbers that exactly …describe the location of any point on the entire wall. If you do exactly the same thing on the globe, you can come up with two numbers that exactly describe the location of any point on the entire Earth. You just have to know where each measurement starts from. And the rulers are printed right there on the globe for you. That's my description, and I'm sticking with it.
Google Maps is very good at finding the place when you HAVE thelatitude/longitude. But it's not designed to go the other way. If you want the latitude/longitude of a spot you… choose on the map,then you're way better off using Google Earth instead.
by looking at the globe.
