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 ?

What are 3 differences between latitude and longitude?

There are three major differences between latitude and longitude. Lines of latitude are parallel to one another, but lines of longitude are not. Lines of longitude are each 180 degrees in length, and latitude lines are all 360 degrees in length. Degrees of latitude have the same mileage all over the Earth. Degrees of longitude have more or less depending on the distance north or south.


Do lines of longitude cross lines of latitude at 45 degrees angles?

All meridians of longitude are perpendicular (90° angles) to all parallels of latitude.


What is longer the latitude longitude lines?

All the longitude lines are half the circumference of the Earth. Only 0 degrees latitude (the equator) is the same, the rest are all shorter.


What are the Longitude and latitude of antarctica?

All lines of longitude on earth converge at the South Pole. You can find Antarctica south of 60 degrees S latitude.


Longitude and latitude for the south pole?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


What are the lines of latitude for the north and south pole?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


What is the latitude and longitude of the South Pole?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude.The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude.All lines of longitude converge at both poles, so neither pole has a longitude.The south pole is located at 90 degrees south latitude and every possible longitude.


Latitude and longitude of arctic ocean?

It must, by definition, cover all lines of Longitude. In terms of Latitude it is further north than, say, 60 degrees.


North Pole and South Pole line is longitude or latitude?

Both poles are noted as 90 degrees. At the poles, all lines of longitude meet. You could say that the poles, then, are indicated as 90 degrees of latitude, but since there is no longitude, latitude can be assumed.


Where do all lines of longitudes come together at?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


Where do the longest latitude and longitude lines intersect?

The longest line of latitude is the equator. All lines of longitude are equal. So, the longest lines of latitude and longitude intersect at the equator.


What are the name of the lines at zero degrees latitude and zero degrees longitude?

The line formed by all the points on earth with zero latitude is the equator. The line formed by all the points on earth with zero longitude is the Prime Meridian.


What is latitude longitude of the equator?

The equator by definition is at 0 degrees of latitude. Longitude runs north-south so all lines of longitudes pass through the equator.


What are the degrees of latitude of the North and South Poles?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


What latitude is the south pole?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


What is the latitude at the south pole?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


Do all planets have longitude and latitude lines?

No planet has lines of latitude or longitude, it is simply a cartographers convention on maps of the Earth.


What lies at the intersection of the longest lines of latitude and longitude?

All lines of longitude are equal. The longest line of latitude is the Equator.


What continent is crossed by every line of longitude?

Antarctica. The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


Which one line is parallel latitude or longitude?

All 'lines' of latitude are parallel to all others.No meridian of longitude is parallel to any others.-- All 'lines' of latitude are parallel to all others.-- No meridian of longitude is parallel to any other one.


What is the antarctica longitude and latitude?

The South Pole is located on the continent of Antarctica. The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles. The Antarctic Circle is at 66 degrees 32 minutes S latitude.


What are the degrees of the north and south pole?

The South Pole is at 90 degrees S latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. All lines of longitude converge at both poles.


What is the latitude and longitude of Antarctica?

The latitude of Antarctica is approximately 66 to 90 degrees South. All lines of longitude converge at the South Pole, so all lines of longitude pass through Antarctica. Antarctica is a continent covering 10% of the earth's surface -- about as large as USA and Mexico combined. Latitude and longitude imply specific locations, not general geographies.


Are lines of latitude and longitude measured in degrees?

The lines aren't measured at all, any more than the marks on a ruler need to be.It's the latitude and longitude that need to be measured, and lines are oftenprinted on maps in order to make the job easier. Latitude and Longitude are angles,so they're described in angle units, most commonly in degrees and fractions of degrees.If you see a line on a map, every point on the 'line' has the same latitude or the samelongitude, so there's nothing on the line to measure.
