The Prime Meridian is the line that marks all points at Zero longitude. The

International Dateline roughly follows the meridian of 180

The Prime Meridian is the line that marks all points at Zero longitude. The

International Dateline roughly follows the meridian of 180° longitude. Since

those two lines mark different longitudes, the only place where they can meet

would be a place where all longitudes come together. Fortunately, there are

two of those on Earth . . . the north and south poles.

They meet at 90° north latitude and at 90° south latitude.
