1Â° of latitude = about 69.11 miles
1Â° of longitude = about 69.11 miles along the equator. But all of the longitudes
come together at the poles, so the farther you are from the equator, the fewer
miles there are in one degree.
Number of miles in 1Â° of longitude = (69.11) x (cosine of the latitude)
1 degree of latitude is about 111 km or about 69 miles. Anywhere.
About 48.9 miles.
Degrees of longitude are uniform in length. 1 degree (Longitude) = 69.69 miles*Cos(Ө)(latitude) however the length of a degree of latitude depends on were you are on the planet. A degree of latitude at the equator is notable longer than, for example, a degree of latitude at the latitude of Toronto, Canada.
One degree of latitude, and one degree of longitude along the equator only, is equivalent to roughly 69.1 miles (111 km). One degree of latitude, and of longitude on the equator only, is also equal to about 60 nautical miles.
Every degree of latitude is the same size, regardless of its longitude. That size is about 69.11 miles, or 364,900 feet.

Latitudes are evenly spaced regardless of the longitude. One degree of latitude corresponds to 60 nautical miles on the surface, or about 69.1 regular miles.
-- Each degree of latitude, anywhere on Earth, is about 69 miles in a north or south direction. -- Each degree of longitude covers a different distance, depending on the latitude. At the poles, any number of degrees of longitude cover zero distance.
