What is the hemisphere of Spain?
Spain is clearly in the Northern Hemisphere. There is some dispute as to whether it is in the Eastern or Western Hemisphere. If you go with a literal definition between Eastern and Western Hemispheres occurring at the Prime Meridian and the International Date Line, then Spain is overwhelming in the Western Hemisphere, but has a small percentage in the Eastern Hemisphere. However, many people use the term "Eastern Hemisphere" to refer to any country in the Old World, for which Spain certainly qualifies. Therefore, in this more colloquial understanding, Spain is an Eastern Hemisphere country.
