Some maps and globes have a great number of lines printed on them. Some maps

and globes have fewer lines, and some have no lines at all. There is no official

standard set of 'lines'. Every point on Earth has a different set of latitude and

longitude coordinates, whether or not there happens to be a printed "line" on

the map that happens to go through that point.

There are as many different longitudes and latitudes as the number of different

points on Earth. How many do you think that might be ?
