In navigation, there are two primary types of course lines that can be plotted, a great circle and a rhumb line. The great circle provides the shortest distance between any two points on the globe, but requires that the course (and headings) be continuously adjusted. A rhumb line results in a longer distance to travel, but allows for a constant course (or heading) to be maintained. By definition, a rhumb line (also known as a loxodrome) crosses all meridians at the same angle.
A "Great circle". A straight line on a Mercator projection is a "rhumb line", and is not the shortest distance.

Mercator projection represents rhumb lines, which are useful for navigation. It makes the areas near the poles appear very large.

A line of best-fit.
If there is an actual physical line on the floor, and you are on it, then you are on line. If you are in a line of people, you are in line. If you are in a line of people, and also standing on a physical line on the floor, then you are both in and on line. If there is a group of people, standing in a line, and you are standing on top of the group of people standing in line, then you are standing on line.
A line intersect is a point on a line where another line or object crosses the line.
Mercator:Mercator projection works very poorly in polar regions and becomes undefined at the north and south poles. Historically Mercator is interesting because it is one of the oldest map projections to be used. Christopher Columbus used the Mercator projection in his travels to the new world. This projection is often used in navigation because any straight line is a rhumb line (a line of constant direction). Parallels of latitude and longitude are straight. Features increase in size as the map approaches the poles. Areas and shapes of large areas are distorted. Distortion increases away from the equator and is extreme in polar regions. However, being a conformal projection, angles and shapes within any small area are essentially true.
The London Subway has 11 lines. Bakerloo line, Central line, Circle line, District line, Hammersmith & City line, Jubilee line, Metropolitan line, Northern line, Piccadilly line, Victoria line and Waterloo & City line.

In geometry a line is thought of as extending infinitely in both directions. A line segment is part of a line.
A great circle is a line drawn on a globe (or sphere) that divides it into two equal halves. A great circle arc (a segement of a great circle) is always the shortest distance between two points on the Earth. Since the Earth is a globe, that is not equivalent to a straight line on a map. For example, if we draw a line on a Mercator's projection map (a "rhumb line") from New York to Tokyo, it will go straight across the country, through California, near Hawai'i, and on to Japan. However, if we take a string and put one end on a globe at New York and the other on Tokyo, the line will pass through Canada and Northern Alaska. That is actually the shortest route. There are infinitely many great circles on the earth's surface; any two points on earth are connected by at least one. But the great circles that are easily identified are the equator, and any possible line of longitude, paired with its partner on the other side of the poles, 180 degrees of longitude over. If the two points are antipodal (exactly opposite each other on the globe, like the north and south poles) then like the poles, infinitely many great circles contain them.
it snaps the line. ex. _______ ______ see the space, with line snapping the secong line will attach itself to the nearest line giving you a line like this ________________ that's what line snapping is.
[A Parallel line is a straight line, opposite to another, that do not intersect or meet.] Ie. Line 1 is Parallel to Line 2. ------------------------------------------------- <Line 1 ------------------------------------------------- <Line 2
The suction line is the big one. This line should be cold when the unit is on. The small line is the liquid line.

A line extends forever into space and a line segment is a segment or part of a line, so a line is longer than a line segment.
